Slomo Sapiens :: Battery Powered Hooker Boots :: Tulpa

Gasp! Some friends of Battery Powered Hooker Boots are on tour from Philidelphia. Come watch and share the awesome power of music and friendship in tandem. Sweat, laugh and writhe to the musical stylings of: Battery Powered Hooker Boots: In 2015 The Universe decided to bring together two wayward, ceaselessly seeking musicians that had no business being in the same project. The first: a skeletal shredder whose only purpose was to melt faces with bone-dry tube amps and raw dexterity. He spent centuries touring the cities of the South, thriving off the pleasures and pains of slinging hot, molten metal from the tentacles of North Carolina’s inkiest doom band, SQUIDLORD. The Disco Goddess had mastered his passion for scraping and abusing the strings he drew tightly across his shit-oozing humbuckers with his crusty neon painted claws; but it would take more than a hydrogen bomb to break through the concrete and steel that encased his mind in order to find absolute, multi-instrumental audio annihilation. The second: a workaholic, shamanistic wizard of science, who locked himself in a cabin by the mythical waterfalls of Shumont Mountain for an unknown period of time with only a VCR, an impossible pan-dimensional guitar pedal rig, and magical toy poodle companion. He was composing complex loops and blissful, majestic symphonies. It has been rumored that Daisy Chains could blow a kiss into his 1970’s single coil pickups and the electronic signal that passed through his custom built effects pedals could produce a sound wave so beautiful that any woman who heard it would die of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. But Daisy Chains was only expressing a small fraction of his conscience, and had not yet unlocked the ability to express the pain and grit that comes with living the life of a true artist. All it took was an accidental encounter and a brief conversation over hoppy microbrews and fried pickles, and Disco and Daisy agreed to a session. At first, just some drums and guitar deep in the SQUID’S LAIR. It was total shit. They were too different. It could never work. Then a bad joke from a ink-brained master of harmonic composition told the two to start a techno band. And so the squid commandeth, and so the two knew what they must do. They would unite and fuse their half-assed philosophies into a brand new project that would galvanize Asheville, North Carolina into a new paradigm of poor taste and kerosene-soaked excitement. They wouldn't start a tech-no band, they would start a tech-yes band using the new answer to their impossibility as a duo: Electronic Trash. And so, the pair ventured forth, and with ancient rituals, they summoned perverse noise from any instrument they could get their hands on: buzzy analogue synthesizers, archaic drum machines, crap vocoders, and sticky thrift shop children’s toys. Eventually, they found themselves utilizing the very video game systems that first exposed good music into their lives. Basically anything that wasn't a computer — and would terrify anyone with a steady job and neck tie — was game. Two full years of experimenting with these electronic sounds and the project went from sounding like your grandma’s vibrator thrashing on a concrete floor to an epic amalgam of LFOs, 8 bit nostalgia, and shredding guitars toppling over impossibly heavy bass riffs, all melted over East Coast style hip hop beats. Battery Powered Hooker Boots was born, and now in the year 2017, the band, along with Daisy Chains’ illegally named upcycled synthesizer company BPHBinc is ready to come out and give the music business the business.
