A KILLER NIGHT of BANDS (rain date)

It snowed pretty hard on 3/13/19 (the original date for this show) - THIS is the rescheduled show!

Date of Birth: September 22, 1954 – Date of Death: June 17, 2009

Legendary ‘rave’ producer Eon, a.k.a. Ian Loveday, passed away Wednesday, June 17 2009, from complications with pneumonia. He was one of the first producers to gain popularity amongst the late-80s/early-90s rave scene with hits like “Spice” and “Fear the Mind Killer”, the sound being a link between early techno and modern breakbeat.

As Eon, his tracks made their way to early 90s pirate radio stations in London, and then out on vinyl through small labels like BAAD and Vinyl Solution. He would release his most well-known tracks on the seminal album, ‘Void Dweller’ in 1992 at the height of the spread of modern dance music in the US. ‘Void Dweller’, with the hit ‘Spice’ owing its recognizable hook to a sample from David Lynch’s movie “Dune”, was one of the first major label releases, on Columbia, for producers in the burgeoning rave scene.

His work saw release on numerous labels over the years, including Hooj Choons and XL Recordings. In ‘93 he teamed up with fellow British acid pioneer Peter ‘Baby’ Ford, producing many classic tracks including ‘Dead Eye’ which would eventually be released as a single on Richie Hawtin’s Plus 8 label. Loveday would go on to release under his Minimal Man moniker up until just before his death.

Eon performed live at Fabric and on Radio One over the years, and worked with producers like Mark Moore (S’Express) and Marcus J Knight. Most recently, he had been busy in the studio with long time collaborator Baby Ford on some new projects.

To really understand what was in the Fort Collins water at the turn of the decade, it is important to mention Hanger A10, where, in fits of mad brilliance on drunken summer nights we convened to discharge asynchronicity through the airwaves of the industrial district. In the dearth of a noise ordinance, we experimented with broad ideas and instrumentation.

It was a sonic slaughterhouse.

At peak dissonance, Hangar A10 produced improvisational and arrhythmic drumming haunted by unworldly synthesizers and a vicious assault on a guitar made of lightning. Sparks spewed as the uncut strings raked the corrugated steel walls, the microphone electrified your lips until you couldn’t feel them singing. Out of the hellish sound created in that dark laboratory came Los Toms, with Jerel Teichroew on guitar, Nately Dorlac on bass, and Jackson Connolly on the drums.

Los Toms spans a swath of psychedelic sound. On the lighter end they embrace the ephemeral groove of neo-psychedelia, accenting with surfstyle drumbeats and washed out synthesizers. Fuzz and distortion dominate the heavier end of the band's spectrum.
