Wild Jesus and The Devil’s Lettuce Family Party Band is a community of musicians with the uncanny ability to surprise you every time they take the stage. As one might expect from such a strangely named group, Wild Jesus’ sound ranges from noir waltzes all the way to effects laden, impressionistic, psychedelic grooves.
Infusing traditional rock formats with classical idioms, Cruciforms feature dark, dense harmonic writing complimented by moments of comic finesse and melancholic ambience. It’s chamber music by way of a rock band; modern composition at high decibels.
POST HONEYMOON (ex New Black and Bang! Bang!)
Post Honeymoon strips bare and slows down the pop songs Kraska and Shindelman perfected while playing in other outfits. What’s left are the kind of songs you dream up when you think nobody else is listening. Think Siouxsie Sioux meets the Motels, meets Love & Rockets (without the guitars).
