Bronze - Live In San Francisco

For 9 years they have been slowly simmering in a pot For 9 years I have been seeing them usurp every gig they have been on I’ve never seen a bad Bronze show…they range from smiling and hypnotized dancing crowds to a man getting violated and urinated on at a yuppie bar (everyone still smiling) Always the entertainers Always drunk with mad skills With dashes of John Carpenter, Silver Apples, Liquid Liquid, Birthday Party, Harold Grosskopf, Klaus Schultze, Cluster, and Brian Ferry with a field recorder taped to his tux jacket Ultra bottom heavy dance beats a la Brian Hock (shirt off/ shirt on, it’s all good to me) Super hand-wringing oscillations home brewed by Miles Friction and the ever-great Robert Spector delivering homilies from beyond the dimensional wall they bought a limousine to tour in (which may be the raddest fucking thing I’ve ever heard of) but its been parked in the bat cave under a car cocoon like San Francisco’s best kept secret These guys should be on tour, eaten alive every night by ravenous fanatudes but alas, they are like a rare treat these days SO we’ve waited outside the bivouac for the flap to lift and after many nights and cold rations they appeared and performed the great and fabled Bronze happening for us to trap to tape a mix of absolute old faves and new gears grinding a great night indeed recorded and mixed by the castle face crew adorned with photos of the night You are well set to feast on this release” - John Dwyer
