Interview by Rave and Roll Blog with Marilyn Roxie and Dan Wreck

Anyone who has followed this blog over the years knows that I have a huge soft spot for 80s alternative music, synthesizers, musicians who think outside of the box, and sultry British voices. When Marilyn Roxie (founder/creator of net music label Vulpiano Records) asked me to review Neurotic Wreck’s latest compilation, I must say I hit the lottery on all counts.

VULPIANO RECORDS, Neurotic Wreck – Glow Ghosts (VULP-0084)

tumblr_oa53awadJ21qaikyto1_500A Netlabel Day 2016 Special Release

I am very proud to offer the latest album from Neurotic Wreck on Vulpiano Records: Glow Ghosts. Glow Ghosts has a little bit of everything that sole force Dan Wreck behind the musical project has on offer – sultry synth pop, girl-group inspired broken heart anthems, and sweet acoustic crooning. Recommended if you like Gary Numan, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Durutti Column. Neurotic Wreck has two previous Vulpiano releases: Priceless, Bloody Priceless and I’m Laura Palmer.

CHAOSTROPHY :artworks inspired by the band Coil

17.06.2016 – 23.07.2016

LUDWIG
Anzengruberstr. 3, 12043 Berlin
curated by Ceven Knowles

CHAOSTROPHY-3bThe music of Coil spanned over twenty-two years with fifteen studio albums, nine live albums, ten compilations, and dozens of Eps and singles, not to mention different aliases, side projects, and other collaborations. Founding members, John Balance (February 16, 1962 – November 13, 2004) and Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson (February 27, 1955 – November 10, 2010) created a rich body of work that came to also include members: Stephen Thrower, Drew McDowell, William Breeze, Thighpaulsandra, Ossian Brown and countless other guest musicians and singers. Their ever-evolving sound and presence became a legacy deeply respected by artists, musicians, and occultists around the world. Rather than a retrospective of the band’s output this exhibition focuses on original visual and audio artworks, photographs, texts, performances and personal reflections as a tribute.

This serves as the opening exhibition at LUDWIG a new gallery, small event venue, culture house, and bar in Berlin Neukölln spread over three large rooms covering 114 square meters. Over the weeks of the exhibition online video documentaries, live streaming events and other materials giving portraits the artists involved and their contributions will be released online for those who cannot be in Berlin can experience as well.

My music video for Neurotic Wreck – “Funeral of Roses” will be on display in the Cesar Chavez Student Center Art Gallery exhibition Re/Action, opening 4/21 from 5pm-8pm. The exhibition was juried by Rebeka Rodriguez from Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

A group exhibition with:

Every cause has an effect and every effect becomes the cause of something else. The artists in this show bring the learning, relationships and experience of their time at SFSU to the work in this exhibition. These undergraduate years have provided space for each artist to be active agents in their own lives and to explore the images and stories that matter to them on their own terms. The glorious result is a show comprised of works that embrace a broad spectrum of human complexity including: self-protection, isolation, private and public spheres of violence, contradictions, love, playfulness and more. Almost 100 works were submitted for consideration; the chosen pieces span drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and video.
