Someday Soon You'll All Be Sorry
ROLLING STONE, (SEPT,1999) [One of] the States' block-rockinest beat magicians...SQUONKY BRICOLAGE ASTRALWERKS.COM Shiverhead comes to Astralwerks fresh from being named one of MUSICIAN Magazine's 'Best Unsigned Bands of 1998' MIXER MAGAZINE Shiverhead goes apeshit with his 303 tweaks INDUSTRIAL NATION MAGAZINE #7 What makes SHIVERHEAD respectable is the fact that, unlike most industrial dread mongers...he has a sense of humor. Sure, he screams about ripping your face off and tells God to bite him,but his periodic musical digressions show he knows how to have fun, too. For all his heretical hyperbole, he realizes it's just a song...and his ability to weave together a garage sale's-worth of samples...into a seamless production is both admirable and entertaining ...assuming he avoids being struck down by a bolt of divine lightning... About the Artist Eccentric glam/electro artist, SHIVERHEAD, has done years of hard time on the electronic music underground. He established a strong cult following in the early industrial scene with his tracks on dedicated cybercore labels like 21st CIRCUITRY, ZOTH OMMOG, INDUSTRIAL NATION (the first CD sampler representing the state of underground industrial from this internationally read magazine, the scene's Industrial Bible in the nineties), CONVERGENCE, and his own DARKHOUSE RECORDINGS. He opened for well known industrial bands of the time like PIGFACE and ELECTRIC HELLFIRE CLUB, and even appeared on MTV with his own twisted industrial/techno video version of AC-DC's 'Highway To Hell'. Through the late nineties, he refined his electronic sound without diluting any of his lyrical trademarks--obsessive, sardonic, spiteful, regretful, bitterly humorous--a quick internet search will find not only SHIVERHEAD fan sites, but quotations of his lyrics on more than one website dedicated to collecting Dark Poetry. He was named one of MUSICIAN MAGAZINE's 12 Best Unsigned Bands for 1998 (as voted on by MOBY, ANI DIFRANCO, and other Famous Rock Stars like ART ALEXAKIS (of EVERCLEAR) and immediately landed a track on ASTRALWERKS, possibly the largest electronic music label in the world, with artists like THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS, FATBOY SLIM, and BASEMENT JAXX as his labelmates. Now, with favorable reviews in ROLLING STONE, MIXER MAGAZINE, and on AMAZON.COM, you can hear his music everywhere...on a movie soundtrack (BELLYFRUIT), as background on MTV specials (LENNY KRAVITZ' 'BIOrhythm'), on the USA NETWORKS series FARMCLUB, ...and on his new EP: 'SOMEDAY SOON YOU'LL ALL BE SORRY'. SHIVERHEAD is a solo artist in the studio, with a host of supporting players onstage.
