WIERD Presents a Celebration of the History of ANAREXIA(sik)!!!!

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

Well I never in all my years did I think it possible I would live to experience this same VRevent twice as I first did back in the frozen cold daze of 2005, but on behalf of WIERD Records I would like to say that this morning my hair straightener melted my mouse...VR...This is now officially the SECOND TIME this sentence has every been uttered in the history of the English language.:

Thank you to everyone who braved the far beyond 'local only' 90 minute train ride up to Columbia for the Xeno & Oaklander show on Sunday afternoon, seeing our Very Rare heroes M.Canterel and Ms. Xeno singing to the big WIERD world beneath a fragile cherry blossom tree gently swaying away to the sounds of the CR-78 in the lovely afternoon Xanten breeze of the frozen hot sun..this one was certainly a sight to remember. Our beloved in-house discursive documentarian Mr. Teardrop has poetically denoted his as always astute thoughts on the afternoon's activities with a few nice images here:

The lifelong Lady of the WIERD night Ms. Shadowtime has graciously reviewed last week's live performance here:

Well as mysteriously as ever a new live video of Frank(just Frank)'s fantastic performance at the 'WIERD Presents:' show at the Annex appeared online for the great track 'Crisis' off the 'Brutal Wave' Demo tapes:

I'm very happy to say I just received the first shipment of Chris and Kirti's debut CDr Compilation release on their just established Ligurian Records Label! In anticipation of the band's debut LP which they are set to begin recording in a few weeks this first readily aVRailable collection of songs entitled 'The Brutal Wave Demo' includes nearly all the bands recorded trax to date including those included on both 'The Brutal Wave'(2007) and 'Decontrol'(2008) demo tapes and CDrs as well as 3 new songs! This release will be available via the WIERD Records website beginning next Tuesday. The tracklist tentatively looks like this:

OK this week WIERD is honored to play hostess to our fave ExtraVRestial creature of the Dark Synth NYC night as we celebrate the birth of ANAREXIA at Midnight! As a the infamously elusive Ms. Pre-Op Trans recently said of our queen mega-bitch "COME ON OUT TO WIERD AND SEE HER HAVE HER CAKE AND NOT EAT IT OOOH!!!"...needless to say this evening should be one for the freeky frigid Insekts of the Very Rare Night!: http://www.myspace.com/anarexia As if this weren't uncomfortable and as wonderfully awkward as ever rumors have tonite we will also be playing host to NYC's King of Conceptuo-Minimale Synthetic visual WIERDness M. Epee du Bois who will also be celebrating his emergence from the frozen cold womb tonite!!! http://www.myspace.com/epeedubois

Pieter, Anarexia and Pre-Op Trans Spin the Undeniably Dysphoric Pleasures of ANAREXIA!!!!
