The band Lady Piss make their first venture northward, after dazzling local Baltimore audiences for some time, with their pummeling hooks and angular, infectious riffage. Progressive and wild, one might compare these B-more sensations to The Jesus Lizard and that's fair, sonically speaking, but only as a baseline—their deft, intricate arrangements and great songwriting take flight into new, cascading zones that are uniquely the band's own. Lady Piss have an outstanding pedigree in their hometown, as the project features former members of Triac, Fight Amp, Carrion, Dactyl and Flowers in the Attic, and current members of Multicult, The Wayward, and Murder.
Their debut 12" vinyl e.p., Streaming, has done quite well, especially for a first, self-made release (hear and purchase the digital version at bandcamp, though the vinyl does come w/a free download code), and you can pick up a copy and hear for yourself, not only on the air but live in person as well, as Lady Piss' My Castle of Quiet radio appearance coincides with a NY-area show, at The Charleston in Williamsburg, Saturday, August 6th, with Ancient Sky, The Catalyst and Tournament. From a trickle off the curb to your radio, this week on The Castle.
I hand over my show opening to Dave the Spazz, my features splayed from a good session of "Hogs of the Road," @ midnight.
