The beautiful soundscape album for ChaoticArtCircus: “Chaos Is Your Destiny” Kelli Wise composer. Integral to the live events. GoTo AllMusic.com
From 1988 to 1991, I played guitar in bands thruout NYC, evolving into the hardcore band Anti, with Veronica Evanega on vocals, Jay Joseph on bass, and JoeMitch on drums. The scene included bands Prong, White Zombie, Helmet, CopShootCop, Lunachicks playing at venues Wah-Wah Hut, Pyramid, Lismar Lounge, Beirut1&2, Brooklyn Academy, Queens clubs, LoneStar Cafe, and, CBGB’s – Veronica even ran sound there. “Roni” was the cog to the entire scene. I was lucky to meet her, and Jay, and be a part of it all.
Classic cool gig story –
Bedrock, a 3-piece metal funk band, opens for Billboard Top 10 & MTV hit band – ‘Cause & Effect’ 1994. Great Venue. Huge 3 Tier stage. Huge crowd.
Our show ‘Intro’ was me screaming something, drummer starts 16th note drum roll as I run down the 3 tiers, jump to the last tier, slam the downbeat of the tune, and we’re ‘in’. Mike is 50 feet away stage left.
Right at the very moment I start running down the tier…out of nowhere, this dude starts running right beside me…I leap to the last tier, the dude swan dives into the crowd, we hit the downbeat with a vengeance…Raaaaaawk…security team flies to the middle of the crowd and starts beating dude’s ass. The crowd erupts, the metal riffing up their asses, everyone jumps on the security team, massive mosh pit…and we’re only 20 seconds in….never let up the entire 30 minute opening set….so much fun.
