On this video episode I am profiling the band Wireless G, a duo based in the larger Detroit area. I saw them play with FLASHCLASH and thought the band was so good that I should do a little video with them as well. For only a 2 piece when Wireless G they should like a full band is playing, with some blazing guitar riffs with a funk groove. We did this video in front of the infamous Shelter on May 4, 2011. The 2 guys in the bands are fine people with good taste in music and a sense of humor. During the night I also took several photo of the band and crowd that you can view at my flickr page.

For this audio episode I am talk with Infernal Devices members Andy and Mark who play a synth-pop, indie electro type of music that you all know I love. We talk about the band, playing live and in the second part of the interview we get into their love of science fiction and talk movies. They have an ep out, "A Million Miles Above" that I play 2 songs from.
I also discuss the new album "Love In Age of War" the from Men Without Hats, here's my written review of it:
I’ll put it out there that Men Without Hats “Rhythm of Youth” and “Folk of the 90’s P.III” are 80’s classics that should be just as revered as Human League’s “Dare” or New Order’s “Low Life.” Those MWH albums were full of 3 minute synth pop tracks with catchy hooks and choruses built for singing along to. Most probably only remember “Safety Dance” but there were several other good songs on those albums that didn’t hit the radio. While there have been MWH hats albums since then, one even included another favorite song of mine, “Pop Goes the World,” none of them captured the synth pop glory that those first two albums did.

FLASHCLASHis a local Detroit band headed for greatness. What I didn’t know was this was preordained as the band informs me on this very funny and chaotic interview. For their new ep “Born of Astronauts” FLASHCLASH played the Shelter, which is downstairs from the infamous St. Andrews Hall, on May 4, It was the lead singer, Jorge’s birthday, so you could say the band was in very good spirits. Having read about their visually vivid live show that features eclectic electro-pop songs featuring trombone and Theremin, this was my first time witnessing the space jamming magnificence of FLASHCLASH. If you have the opportunity to see them as they as playing some dates this summer make sure you get out and see them!
