Music Go MusicSaw the inaugural Music Go Music show at Bordello last night. If you haven't heard, this is David and Meredith (of Bodies Of Water)'s new disco-pop/prog side project. I recognize some of the other band members (the 1970's-looking BOW lead guitarist...the 1970's-looking Mezzanine Owls bassist), not others (the drummer, the pair of Fleetwood Mac-esque backing singers). Apparently they had their own custom sound person working the board at Bordello, because (as Josh from Les Blanks said) it basically sounded like a record onstage--Meredith had some kind of automatic harmonizer on her vocals, so everything sounded like a duet between her and some invisible elves. I need one of those. She also came on in what I can only describe as an early David Bowie perm and a dress with giant gold lamé hand silhouettes on it. Some pics here.
They have some really super-strong ABBA-esque disco pop songs, some stuff that sounds like Donna Summer, a sort of Olivia Newton-John ballad, some proggy stuff that Josh described as Wizzard-esque. Lots of jamming. Everything sounded like a time capsule from 1975 or thereabouts. Josh and I both agree they will be huge.
