"Both songs show that Atlanta's SIDS know that it is the songs that matter and that to make them work with electronics there needs to be an edge."
"I dropped the needle on this 45, and it took all of 3 seconds for me to go ga-ga over it."
GNR011 | S.I.D.S.
S.I.D.S. is made up of Adam Stroupe, Josh Fauver, Erin Carmichael and a cardboard cut out of Sid Vicious playing a pre-programmed Yamaha psr-540. The yellow vinyl 7” includes a cd-r with a hidden track, a dvd of their recent performance at Atlanta’s Drunken Unicorn, and the artwork of Keren Richter (notkeren.com/Blood is the New Black).
In the strictest sense of musical lineage, S.I.D.S. owes a debt, in varying degrees, to Devo, Throbbing Gristle, D.N.A. and Kraftwerk. These comparisons serve only minimally, though, as it must be understood that S.I.D.S. music--if not it’s psyche altogether--is informed not by the rundown, industrial design of Mark Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale’s Akron, Ohio, but by the shiny, hyper-realized modernity of Atlanta, GA. And, yeah, that makes a difference. As much as one can hear the primal reaction to a speedy and emotionally neutral culture, there also is an underlying sense of confusion and desperation as if to say, “No human can keep up with this.”
