WIERD Presents a Very Rare Evening with LIGHT ASYLUM!

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

This weeks WIERD is dedicated to everyone whose hairstylist's voice precisely mimics that of Tennis legend John McEnroe...just close your eyes, tilt your head back...that bitchy attitude, those tiny tight FILA shorts, dirty little headband, one-handed backhand, and that ever glamorous late 70s NYC nightlife lifestyle...mmmmhmmm....

I'm very excited to say at long last as of late last night the debut album from XENO & OAKLANDER which will be entitled 'SENTINELLE' is finally complete and the release date for the first single 'Saracen' b/w 'The Shot, The Fall' is now set for October 15th, and the full-length LP/CD for November 1st!!! WIERD will be hosting the official record release party for this absolute masterpiece on Wednesday October 28th, in the meantime I'll be spinning a track or two each of the next few weeks so keep you cold little ears awake and awierd in the foggy latenight mist...VR

WIERD is pleased to welcome LIGHT ASYLUM for their debut performance at the party this Wednesday at midnight! Yet another fantastic new group who will undoubtedly feel right at home in the WIERD, Shannon and Bruno's elegantly flowing uptempo, melancholic and infectious trax should be quite a treat for Very Rare ears this week. As it seems has been the case week after week lately L.A. has a truly idiosyncratic sound - managing to combine the sardonically swaggering attitude of early Italo, the fierce and unpredictably 'femme noire' vox of the likes of Nina Simone, Ronny, Hazel O'Connor, or even Q Lazzarus, and the rubbery icicular restrained keys and drum machines of classic UK minimal synth/wave legends The Associates, Visage, or B-Movie. See you all in the lovely naughty and dark asylum of pure frozen cold pleasure!

Pieter and Frankie Teardrop Spin the WIERD World!
