The Homosexuals

Matador Records helped Sonic Youth celebrate the release of their new record The Eternal with a party at Home Sweet Home on the Lower East Side of Manhattan last Friday. The semi-private show had local bands playing Sonic Youth covers while the actual Sonic Youth was hanging out in the crowd.

Bands included The Antlers, Tiny Masters of Today, Apache Beat, The Homosexuals (backed by members of Fiasco), and "The Goo Believers" (at least that's what I think they called themselves). They were Chris Brokaw (Come, Codeine), Jemina Pearl (Be Your Own Pet, Ecstatic Peace label), Matt Krefting (Ecstatic Peace label), Zachary Cale, John Maloney (Sunburned Hand of the Man), and Jaiko Suzuki (Electroputas). You can see Thurston Moore watching them from the sidelines in some of the pictures below...

This was a good ol' time. SY guys are super nice people to boot.

That was a weird line-up for the Homosexuals. Where did the band go? They were way better when Apache Beat guy and the other two dudes were backing him. That shit was intense. The Fiasco kids were wet behind the ears. Big boots to fill there.

Just reminiscing on how incredibly awesome the NY incarnation of the Homosexuals were. God damn. Bruno with his campy dialog, new tunes like Slow Guns, the freak outs and that monster of a bass player. Just hearing the Important if True tracks, blown away.
