Your Ad Here is one of the most elusive bands one is likely to run across.
We have been promoting their music since 1998, and even now, we're not
sure if they're even a real band.
When asked, they will give only the vaguest and most contradictory statements
about who they are, what they are about, and who is involved. They
don't return our calls, they answer emails only whenever they feel like
it, and they don't answer questions. They do whatever they want.
Meanwhile, however, they create some very compelling music. Most
of it takes place on a lush, synthetic background, but always with an organic,
human counterpart. Their lyrics are generally as clever and elusive
as their image. Several of their songs have no lyrics at all, but
rather rely on sampled material. It may not be obvious at first,
but some of their lyrics and themes are intended to be funny, especially
their first single, 'Grip'. Most people don't seem to get the joke.
Of their past releases, they speak as ambiguously as anything else.
They talk grandiosely, but produce little that we can actually listen to.
On hand, we have their full-length album 'Joyful Hymns and Advertising
Jingles', and a single called 'Follow Yer Ka', b/w 'Take 2 Broadway'.
These last two pieces seem to signal a significant departure for the band
(or whatever they are) into less well-produced, more experimental territory.
'Take 2 Broadway' is the best example - a sparse, 24-minute experiment
in random musical wandering, with continuous, inexplicable multiple-overlay
dialog. Like all of their work, it is odd, unpredictable, and randomly
