Lightning Bolt

"When you hear the stories that after Hisham Bharoocha left [Lightning Bolt] to form Black Dice, Chippendale took over vocals by jamming the microphone into his mouth, it all seems to make perfect sense. Lightning Bolt concentrate their efforts around the sheer propulsion and energy their music drives off. And while Chippendale has always been an excellent drummer, the vocals he provides here and there open up the sounds in immense manners. On the forever moving "Transmissionary," fused with menacing, twirling music that swirls and confuses, his vocals convey a ghostly blend of spectral vision - they're spooky, vital and completely necessary."

Hisham Bharoocha is no longer in Black Dice either. He now spends his time performing as Soft Circle. He released a split 12 inch on PPM with High Places in July

Black Dice, Mick Barr and TV Ghost opened for Lightning Bolt at Above the Auto Parts in Bushwick last night (10/30). Leia missed the first two bands, but more shots from the second half of the show, below...
