Digital Leather

Taking cues from late 70's/early 80's synthpunk pioneers as the Screamers, Nervous Gender, and The Units, this Arizona based one man band [Digital Leather] rely on just keyboards, drum machines and vocals to set the scene of gloomy electronic desert landscapes and gay night club discotheques.This is the life of Sean Foree, who created this masterpiece in his one bedroom apartment in Tempe, Arizona. Live he borrows members from the Wongs, Reatards, Lost Sounds, and Destruction Unit. Ten tracks that are sure to appeal to fans of the current rebirth of keyboards in punk... but this record surely pushes the boundries of that. [CT Indie]
Digital Leather, the project of Shawn Foree, was managed by the late Jay Reatard. His record Warm Brother came out last September on Fat Possum. There's a new video for his/their song "Kisses" from that record, which is posted below with all tour dates (SXSW included)...

the guy in the solid black t-shirt must be the drummer, they're usually the ones to say no to stupid horse shit gimmicks. I thought we were over this irony garbage?

Posted by Anonymous | February 4, 2010 1:09 PM

yup, I agree. black t-shirt wasn't feeling it. Gay singer in flannel was totally all about the 'banana' thing. he probably thought it was so funny and witty. yaaay.

Don't even know if he's the singer or not. Just looks like the type. Other dudes in band are probably like: "Aiight, let Xavier do the Banana thing..."

the photo is clearly a reference to the cover of Leonard Cohen's "I'm Your Man"- not just a stupid photo.

Posted by Anonymous | February 4, 2010 1:19 PM

yet he is still holding a banana, so he doesnt say no to gimmicks

generally attempts to demonstrate that any text is not a discrete whole but contains several irreconcilable and contradictory meanings; that any text therefore has more than one interpretation; that the text itself links these interpretations inextricably; that the incompatibility of these interpretations is irreducible; and thus that an interpretative reading cannot go beyond a certain point

Oh, and what about those question marks on Sunday's text in the concert poster below? No, that isn't saving a spot for a Smiths reunion or U2 debut on the Coachella stage, it's the way that Yorke presents himself as a solo star, the marquee at his Orpheum concert had the same punctuational flourish.
