Starring play "prog-orgy-rock" + release CD at Death by Audio, June 10th

Considering that Starring features members of Pterodactyl, Talibam! and Skeleton$, it could not possibly be a non noisy project. The band's tunes are dominated by chanting vocals, tense and staccato organ sounds, frantic drumming, and clangy guitar tones - perhaps inspired by Arto Lindsay's atonal style which he pioneered in his glorious "no wave" days. All the instruments are played in some sort of "maximalistic" way here - no room for space or subtleties. The result is some kind of weird, crowded, explosive party music with a prog rock flavor... here comes a new genre: prog-orgy-rock?! Quoting Pere Ubu, we could really call this "The New Modern Dance (for the horny post punk hipster)". The band is releasing their debut CD "The Wife of God" with a show at Death by Audio on June 10. After that they will embark on a East Coast tour that will keep them busy until the end of June, when they will play Brooklyn again (Union Pool on June 25).
