New York’s TWIN GUNS features Andrea Sicco (Oscura, Rockethouse) and “Jungle” Jim Chandler (The Cramps, The Makers). Despite being just a duo, Twin Guns has the power and chops to really bring it. Drenched in reverb, fuzz and an overdose of atmosphere, Twin Guns combine parts Jesus & Mary Chain, the Count Five/Seeds vibe, and the New York “No Wave” scene into its own dark stew.
The blank city has gone dark. The cold, killer moonlight casts severe shadows on our souls, and the sound of chaos, madness and melancholy is set to tribal beats and relentless agitation. The expressive, hard to define style of this music helps us get inside this world of instability, fear, and/or alienation. Dark alleys, stifling hot apartments, smoky clubs, roadside dives, and rainy highways prevail. The characters of these stories are often obsessed, desperate, paranoid or trapped. The ensuing struggle and psychological or spiritual torment is what grips us and drives the story.
"The dynamic duo of Jim Chandler and Andrea Sicco have crafted a musical parable of our times. These two have chosen the war torn path. The full range of human pathos - love, abandonment, insanity, the dreamworld, redemption - are made manifest as a freak summer storm rolling over the city below. Play their record loud - play it for your lovers and enemies both and render your ears anew with the bombastic voodoo magick of Twin Guns..." (Oweinama Biu)
