Here are the young men, a snake on their shoulders…
Wichita Linemen from the Black Lagoon, Misty Roses are Jonny Perl (instruments/programming) and Robert Conroy (voices/words).
I’m thrilled to be launching Exotic Pylon Records with Misty Roses’ new single, their first release since their wildly inventive and highly acclaimed 2009 album Villainess.
Puce Woman / Queen Cobra is a carnivalesque celebration of two of American cinema’s most brilliantly occult-orgiastic film-makers. Puce Woman (for Kenneth Anger) opens with playfully demonic noirish orchestration before spiralling into a gaudy whirlwind of madness and mirror balls, pivoting on a repetitiously deranged organ line. Queen Cobra (for Jack Smith) is an explosion of ripped Technicolor speed-glam guitar and electronic chatter, Roxy Bowie dining out with a flapper devil 30 years from now. Their unique thematics and approach to structure is a parallel universe where song and soundscape break down and merge – these are pop songs painted by Fulci in Mareinbad.
