Starwood

Starwood

Sent back in time from Planet Vitrus moments before the planet's destruction in the year 2776 A.D, Gabriel Starwood was created to alter the time continuum in an attempt to control the ever expanding human race: intergalactic cosmos devourers and the eventual destroyers of Vitrus. As an advanced cyborg capable of entering and controlling the human body via nanotechnology, Gabriel has inhabited historically influential Earthlings since the dawn of man, from Jesus Christ and Joan of Arc to Angela Davis and The Marquis De Sade.
Accompanied by a small, yet crucial team of Vitruvian Androids, the Propaganda Performance module of the S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D. mission has taken form as a "Cyber Rock" quintet. Raising the awareness of mankind for the sake of the cosmos, a typical S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D. performance centers on the values of the Vitruvian species, their eventual destruction at the hands of the expansionist hordes, and the S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D. prototype's mass manipulation of the human race.
The quintet is comprised of a classical pianist, an effected bass guitar, an analog synthesizer, looped and effected vocals, and drums. Theatrical in presentation, primal in execution, and psychedelic in nature, the resulting sound is comparable to that of a wooly mammoth being downed by laser-spears, falling face first into a pagan orgy.

Upholstery has been churning out its unique blend of surrealist rock and off-kilter jazz since 2007. The band strives to create a sonic landscape that is both timeless and confounding. In addition to performing and organizing shows, Uph also provides live scores for theatrical works (most notably 2011's Water Bears in Space). The five-piece are prepped to release a new full-length album, music which they aptly describe as 'theatre doom'. The release of Running the Badwater is slated for May 24th, with a celebratory show at Boot & Saddle in South Philly. Like granny's favorite davenport, Uph maintains a distinct sensibility for leathery integrity and peculiar - albeit comforting - odors.
