So...who here remembers the Pain Teens? Ridiculously influential, crazy-ass psychedelic, punkish noise band, signed to Trance Syndicate, then broke up a decade later, after like a half-dozen albums and a weird, not-really-into-it dance with the edges of fame? Yeah, them.
Well, ex-Pain Teens/Culturcide/Truth Decay member Ralf, now of Future Blondes, and FB bandmate Kirston have got a new project, After Party, and on a recent tour up to NYC, they happened to convince former Pain Teens frontwoman Bliss Blood to get up on stage with 'em and do some Teens songs. According to Kirston, the NY crowd didn't know what to make of it, but apparently it was pretty badass.
Now After Party are back home, and things are getting even weirder. After the impromptu Pain Teens deal, now it looks like there might be the possibility of a Culturcide reunion, with Dan Workman on board for a show with After Party sometime next month. Keep yr fingers crossed, y'all.
A little closer to now, attendees at tonight's Mango's show with Future Blondes, //TENSE//, and A Thousand Cranes might also luck into an After Party performance. They're not on the official bill, but I've gotten word that it could happen -- sorry for the late-late notice, but show up around 10PM, and you might well win, eh?
Now, as an added bonus, Kirston's gotten SCR some extra-special videos from the After Party/Pain Teens performance in the Big Apple with Ms. Blood. The sound quality's actually pretty good for it being a live-in-the-bar video. For your viewing pleasure...
"My Desire" (Pain Teens)
"Sacrificial Shack" (Pain Teens)
"Goofy's Concern" (Butthole Surfers)
Big, big, big thanks to Kirston for the videos...
