Screamin' Cyn Cyn & The Pons
We are Screamin' Cyn Cyn & The Pons.
We are a band from Madison WI that makes theatrical punk cabaret music. Our live shows are frenetic, fun, confrontational, and generally soaked in beer, sweat and glitter. We try our very best to delight our crowds, but happily settle for their bewilderment.
Since the departure of our singer and keyboardist to New York City, the logistics of writing and releasing new music have become somewhat prohibitive. Thus, our recently-recorded EP "GIRLS ARE OK" will most likely be our final release.
Loosely translated Bes Monde means "to kiss the world", but the aim of this group is to destroy it. Short and sweet rock & roll inspired by 80's post-punk and the concept of "Beastmode", Bes Monde's live shows are full blown revivals. A tribute to days gone by with hope for a better tomorrow. Fans of primal catharsis should get off their collective asses and dive in.
Fort Wilson Riot
As they tumble out of the back of a maroon minivan into clubs, bars, living rooms and festivals across America, Fort Wilson Riot are liable to become a favorite local band, no matter where you live. Splitting their time between unstoppable touring and incessant recording, the Minneapolis-based duo of Amy Hager and Jacob Mullis have no shortness of ambition. In their time as a band they have recorded an indie-rock opera, Idigaragua, and performed it with a full cast of actors and dancers, produced and recorded their full length follow-up, Predator/Prey, and dropped singles, remixes and compilations.
Their ambition doesn’t just include themselves, they actively work to promote other bands who become friends and collaborators on the road. Amy & Jacob will often go out with bands who are perhaps making their first attempts at a tour and Fort Wilson Riot has released several of the Wild-Eyed Scientist mixes to spread the word about the great music and musicians they find all across the country and the world!
In their own music, Fort Wilson Riot isn’t just happy to let it stay the same either. Yes, they make great harmonies, with Amy’s soprano lifting and floating over Jacob’s growl and yelp, but there is nothing easily classifiable about the rest of their sound. From the crashing guitars and keys, to the blasting uplift of trumpet and harmonica lines to the dancing thump of electronic drums, Fort Wilson Riot are an energy that grabs a hold of you and takes you on a journey. The music doesn’t let up, and wherever they are, neither do Fort Wilson Riot.
