WIERD Presents a Live Performance by Backworld!

Wednesday, March 4, 2009

This week WIERD is very proud to welcome Backworld to their long-overdue debut at the weekly party for a live performance at midnight! Anyone unfamiliar with the amazing Joe Budenholzer and Co(who many of you probably are aware were the first ever American artists invited to record on the legendary UK World Serpent label in the mid 90s) most certainly soon will for with Cult of Youth and the other recent mysterious accoustic guitar spottings oozing out of the WIERD NYC cracks it does indeed feel as though the Neofolk are slowly rearing their musically overeducated heads and resurfacing after being 'gone' for way too long! Apart form the obvious comparisons to the 'Noddy folks' of Douglas P and David T, Joe's trax have always connoted another entire much earlier tradition to me which in turn obviously influenced the naughty Serpentinian Brits including Cult heroes such as Comus, Angus MacLise, John Fahey, and the truly WIERD psychedelic pleasures of the Incredible String Band and Pentangle...regardless of your musical 'Raison...' Check out their recent single - a great cover of Psychic TV's 'The Orchids' on the Myspace page:

I wanted to also let everyone in the WIERD community know before the heat-seeking noise freeks gobble up all the spots that there are only a handful of tickets left for the Friday show featuring Xeno & Oaklander Show at No Fun Fest, Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 15th(Sat show is sold out now FYI), here is the ticketmaster link - get yr tix asap before they're all gone to come on out and see Liz and Sean freeze 600+ people to lovely VR death!...and no unfortunately there is no guest list left sorry kids I wish:

Both Naomi and Glenn have generously as always updated the WIERD Records Flickr page with many of our VRecent live shows:

This week will be a very unique show for us all...see you all Wednesday evening in the cold foggy cloud of our Homely Sweet Home...

Pieter and Frankie Teardrop(Postpunk dot com, Revel Hotel, 'Exotic Birds' Party at Coco66/BKNY) spin the WIERD World!
