“Top 10 ALBUMS OF 2011 # 10 The Charmkin Rebellion , a bit of good news”
“ The Charmkin Rebellion is not so much a band as it is a movement, or a cult. Cults often hide behind the front of some form of legitimate organization in their attempt to accumulate local or planetary power, such as trade unions, charitable organizations, accepted religious groups and even local bands. As a matter of fact, bands make good fronts for cults, as they naturally attract power hungry and mentally unbalanced individuals, which make particularly good material for potential cult members. A very successful rock band can gain real political power, even gaining enough power to make it possible for the band to become the governing body of the planet without having to resort to a full blown Charmkin Rebellion. ”

“Charmkin rebellion this here song and video are the productions of a guy named victor who i met in LA around, what? 9 years ago? He was a fuckin wild-man, a true bestia. He had a dog named Daisy who died recently. She was the coolest fucking dog I ever met. If i remember correctly they were homeless at the time. Daisy was a thief and had fleas and back then Victor liked all kinds of drugs. I think he teaches kids now. This song is awesome. Check it out. Click on the Charmkin Rebellion. ”

“he last band Charmkin Rebellion is a local Silverlake favorite and the leader singer Victor came out wearing red striped pajamas as if he was a fugitive from the red chain gang. After a shaky first start with the mike on the lead singer too low, the mikes were adjusted and Charmkin Rebellion play their quite wonderful melodic rock music and the singer hit his groove to the crowd packed into the attic performance stage. Charmkin Rebellion sang their wonderful song "Mercury in Retrograde," which can also be heard on their Myspace page:”
"to gypsies, reality is often the exact opposite of appearance ... when approached directly, they show a total disregard for consistency" ... --- jan yoors," the gypsies" If the Charmkin Rebellion could have invented their own birth, it may have gone something like this ... they would have created themselves from thin air, had it only been possible through parthenogenesis or some mystical process, they would have themselves erupt from the molten core of the planet, with lava for afterbirth. frankly, in the polite repressed atmosphere of the first decade of the 21st century when their own stardom began, they might as well have came from mars. at a time when america was acting as if one big P.T.A. meeting, The Charmkin Rebellion almost constituted a brand new species. even their name was shrouded in mystery, This book may or may not shed some light on this enigmatic rock and roll band.
