The Stevenson Ranch Davidians + Thirsty Eyes
1. November 2018, 20:00
Steeped in the aura of the perennially mythologized psychedelic culture of Southern California and making music influenced by the timeless essence of 60s psych, folk and soul, woven with strands of early American roots music, The Stevenson Ranch Davidians has, since 2006, revealed itself in shifting configurations.
While the lineup has continually coalesced around lead singer and songwriter Dwayne Seagraves, the collective has always had a guiding vision and goal: to create music that seeks to simultaneously demystify and deify
the human experience.
The band´s last album, Amerikana, has been released in June 2017 on Picture In My Ear Records. Amerikana represents a new direction for the band, with the dreamy, flowing sound of albums past infused with a fresh sense of inspiration, energy and purpose. An eclectic, yet cohesive, set of songs that glorify the human spirit while condemning those who seek to
Seagraves states that Amerikana also celebrates what he views as true magic: human will put to action. Through his songs, he hopes to convey the sense that human beings have been the sole source of all great insights and achievements throughout history, and that power originates from within individuals rather than from gods, governments or other external sources.
The band´s new lineup brings a range of talent, experience and inspiration to The Stevenson Ranch Davidians sound. In addition to longtime Davidians
bassist Jessica Latiolait, guitarist Rob Campanella is a member of The Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Quarter After, while his brother, drummer and backing vocalist Andy Campanella, is a veteran of Occult Wisdom, Imogene, Chief Nowhere. Guitarist Misha Bullock, the sole Englishman in the fold, formerly played with Tennis System.
A new album is scheduled to be released on Picture In My Ear in 2018 with european distribution via Fuzz Club Records.
Since their emergence in early 2016, Thirsty Eyes have come to be recognised as major pillars in the falling masonry of Vienna Modern Raunch. Damning contemporary prepossessions for the self-important, homourless and boring, Thirsty Eyes stand for rough and unpolished Rawk-N-Roll: Preserved in alcohol and stripped to the skeleton, yet boisterous and charismatic, sometimes close to sheer unconsciousness. Accordingly these kids know their business, being well prepared to play various popular novelty tunes like the Ding-dang-a-dong, the Higgle-dy-piggle-dy as well as the Yukkum-yukkum. Thirsty Eyes are on a mission and blessed with the rare ability to convert the average Polka audience into batshit loonatics.
