The Emotron is a one-man musical group influenced by Atom and his Package and GG Allin. He performs original material in a karaoke-esque style, using a Yamaha QY700 sequencer among other instruments.
When was the last time you found something really, truly offensive? If your answer included the words "Lady Gaga," fuck off and go read some nice CCM blog. Girl-on-girl kissing and re-enacting Tarantino movies with Beyonce is so inoffensive in this day and age, they got a friggin' sandwich spread to sponsor the video. Okay, how about that M.I.A. video? Meh. Too obvious to be offensive. Plus that super-gorey ending was actually kinda cool in a Gears of War kinda way.
My point is, it takes a lot to offend us these days. As a culture, we've been pretty thoroughly desensitized. Which is why when someone recently turned us on to this guy who calls himself The Emotron, we were blown away. I mean, this guy works overtime to be in-your-face, hide-the-children offensive. It's like if GG Allin and that yams-up-the-ass lady who got an NEA grant had a love child, then raised it on Atom and His Package, Jackass reruns and Pabst Blue Ribbon.
Musically, The Emotron (real name: Jason Kyle Knight) is basically just a one-man punk band whose weapon of choice is a cheesy '80s synthesizer. But the music is kinda secondary to the whole Emotron experience, although several of his songs, especially "Michael Jackson's Dead", are undeniably awesome. No, where The Big E really brings it is at his live shows, which typically feature some or all of the following: tying rubber bands around his head to mash his face into various gruesome configurations; nudity; vomiting (real and/or simulated); lighting his dick on fire; and stuffing objects into a flesh-colored leotard to make himself look like a disfigured circus freak. He also usually cusses a lot, covers himself and the audience is various mysterious powders and fluids, and sometimes does all this shit dressed up like a Texas trucker. Oh, and he drinks a lot. Okay, we'll say it: we have a huge man-crush on this guy.
Emotron's live show has definitely been a work in progress, and a lot of the older clips on YouTube don't really do him justice. You'll see what we mean. - WEIRDESTBANDINTHEWORLD.COM
Nerve Endings are a garage rock/punk band from Bristol, TN/VA. It consists of members (former or current) of Thee Birds ov Paradise, Helm, and Pizza Flag books. We play drunk, loud, and sloppy and sometimes we tell dick jokes.
HECTAGONS! was started near the end of the year 2008 in Charlotte, North Carolina by Wyley Buck Boswell (of Hell Or High Water, Appalucia, Andy The Door Bum, etc...) and Richard Edwin Culp (of Zeus, The Pelicans, Andy The Door Bum, For Disaster, Hot House Hefftones, Pig Mountain, etc...) after the end of their band Clavius (www.myspace.com/claviusrocks). In the summer of 2009 Korey Dudley (of Abe Reid & The Spikedrivers, Tropic Culture, Afrojazziacs, American Fetus, etc...) joined on upright bass and HECTAGONS! was born.
