WIERD Presents a Live Performance by Rochester, NY Cult Legends ELEVEN POND with DJs Hi-Fi Hillary, Pre-Op Trans, and Frankie Teardrop
June 27, 2012
Few bands have held as much importance in providing the soundtrack and spirit to the history of the WIERD Party than this week's performers, and after years of trying to make this show possible, at long last I'm proud to finally welcome them into the Very Rare World. So it is with pleasure that tonight WIERD presents a live performance by Rochester, NY minimal electronic cult legends ELEVEN POND for a live performance at midnight! Active in upstate New York for a just a few brief years in the mid-80's Eleven Pond released one incredible, ultra limited edition LP entitled Bas Relief on Game Hen Records in 1986 which has since become one of the true jewels in the crown of American dark underground music history. Over 20 years after the record's release the band emerged from the frozen depths when our good friend Josh Cheon of Dark Entries Records in San Francisco reissued the album in 2009 and its icy electronic pop masterpiece of a lead single "Watching Trees" exploded into the abstract aether with an appearance as the pride of the WIERD Presents: Cold Waves and Minimal Electronics Part I 2xLP/CD compilation a year later to destroy latenight dancefloors worldwide for generations to come, cementing its place as one of the hands-down greatest dark dance trax ever.
This evening Eleven Pond will perform as a duo featuring the great Jeff Gallea, who has flown in from LA for the show, on synth and vocals and original drummer Tim Masick on drums, and Jeff tells me they will be playing nearly the entire record live just for this VR occasion. Needless to say this will be a very special night for the WIERD World we'll most certainly never forget, and I hope everyone can make it out!
Hi-Fi Hillary, Pre-Op Trans, and Frankie Teardrop Spin the WIERD!
