  • Shameless Self-Promotion Version 5.20

    Friday, May 20th at 9 PM
    at the Matrix Coffeehouse in beautiful downtown Chehalis, WA
    434 NW Prindle St. 360.740.0492
    an eclectic All Ages show for $5 featuring:

    Foodweb (from Olympia, WA)
    Anubian Lights (from Pasadena, CA)
    and the Dead Air Fresheners (from PDX/Olympia/Seattle)

    The Dead Air Fresheners climbed fully masked out of
    the murky waters of Olympia's Eld Inlet in 1997 or so,
    and have been converting new members to their unknown
    cause ever since. Past line-ups have included
    musicians from bands such as Karp, Noggin, and ...And
    You Shall Know Us By The Trail of Dead, and while the
    group assembling for the Chehalis encounter may as
    well, little can be told for sure. Recent sitings
    have been of a meaner, more aggressive Dead Air
    Freshener ensemble with a wall of noise sure to either
    clear a room or beat those in it into submission.

    In addition to the opening slot at the Matrix on
    Friday the 20th, The Dead Air Fresheners will be
    appearing the next evening, Saturday the 21st, on
    Olympia's Community Radio KAOS 89.3 FM at 8 P.M. on
    Agent Duckhugger's Super Secret Logdge Show. Listen
    from anywhere in the world via streaming audio:
    http://www.kaosradio.org

    Meanwhile back in Chehalis:

    Pasadena's Anubian Lights play a suprisingly funky
    brand of experimental electronic music with sexy
    female vocals. The L.A. Weekly said of them: "Anubian
    Lights dish out an exotic trip… with groovie pop
    toe-tappers and sample-laden tuneage that will deliver
    you unto faraway lands and galaxies, teenbeat
    terrains, Neu horizons and dynamic desert shores via
    their non-sulky milky ways…"
    http://www.anubianlights.com

    Foodweb describe themselves as: "a band of sorts, ever
    changing in many ways but always remaining the same.
    ...an improv band started by a man named bill collins
    in the summer of 1997; it originated as a colabrative
    studio album by the same name and has grown to be a
    gathering of musicians in studio and out with its 4th
    studio album in the mix and its 7th live performance
    session recording coming up. There is no style to the
    music except what spues from our minds."

    musicians.
    bill collins - vox. spoken. sound effects. xylophone.
    acoustic guitar.
    mr. maakus - guitar. keys. bass. piano. vox.
    percussion.
    paul mauer - electric&acoustic guitar. piano.
    percussion. trumpet. vox. sitar.
    pat mehan - drums. percussion. vox.
    mark benson - fretless bass. keys. percussion. vox.
    moon st.clair - synth machine.
    aram wheeler - vox. electric guitar. trumpet.
    jarred - electric guitar.

    Hmmm...I don't suppose you feel like writing a piece on the Dead Air Fresheners, do you, Mr Dead-Air? :roll: And submitting it to Prototype X with suitable accompanying photographs?

    We'd like that.

      Well, give me some time to think of something related that might work - a show diary or something. Writing a review of one's own band may be too shameless for even me...

        Try as I may, I just can't find no town called Chehalis in all of WA! Are you sending us on a wild goose chase? What if we'd spend thousands to fly down to Perth or Fremantle and then there's no f*** Chehalis in WA, mate?

          Chehalis is just about 20 miles south of the capitol, Olympia, where I lived for ten years. It's a cow-town to be sure, but some hippies have a groovy cafe there in the Matrix: http://www.matrixcoffeehouse.com/ Centralia where the outlet malls are located immediately to the north is considered the "twin city" of Chehalis.

          Olympia is actually rather small in the cosmic scheme of things itself. It does have an airport, but not one that handles major airlines, so you'd have to hit Seatac and then maybe rent a car for the hour or so straight south down I-5 from there. Hope that's been helpful, I'll glady put you on the guest list for your efforts! :lol:

            The US gets some great names for towns. What do we have?
            Foulridge
            Slough
            Staines

            Blimey.

              It's difficult to top "Dorking" in the UK, or "Fucking" in Austria, "Pussy" in France, or "Clit" in Romania. :lol:

                  'Mygrandmamawasramagedbyag'orilla' (Kazakhstan) is a favourite.

                    Naw, L'E. Dead-Air lives here in my home state of Washington (WA), USA. Not to be confused with our nation's capitol on the other end of the country. :?

                    Native American names, is what a lot of them are. Washington is chock full of 'em. Puyallup is a nice one.

                    I'll try to make it. See if I can get anyone to head south with me next Friday.

                      Cool PWV! Be great to meet you IRL. Actually I'm bi-statual. I live in Portland, but work for the state of WA in Vancouver across the river. I was born in Seattle though and have lived as far north as Bellingham. I can't seem to escape I-5.

                          On the subject of the article, Dead-Air, I'd actually be more interested in a view of The Dead Air Fresheners from the inside anyway: the genesis, philosophy ( :roll: ) and 'force' of the concept and the personalities involved. Rather than a review or similar. Don't know if that grabs you... :)

                            It does grab me, but the problem is I already wrote such a thing:

                            http://satanosphere.com/?op=displays.../1/22147/76007

                            and as you can see it was sort of published online too.

                            Now that is a dated version of the story which focuses a whole lot more on Chuck Swaim than I would now, so if you could handle an updated rewrite, we're onto something. It was only a "diary entry" to begin with, so I suppose the next step would be to develop it into an article for print...
