Hockey - A realistic historical portrait goes up for auction and guess who buys it?? Someone with an interest to make it disappear forever. Of course the portrait cannot totally be owned or destroyed but all those pseudo historian buyers really helped make things more complicated? What?! where?d you get that reflex for bad timing. If there are more than 50 open Champaign bottles in the room you can?t say things like that? Ok right well my next point, less Equivocal and perfect for the setting, is that I like to travel between worlds. Ask me to describe why I?d say that it has to do with a sort of humility. But until I figure out what it means to live publicly I won?t say anymore?

Sigmund Droid has a combination of courage and chops to create meaningful sounds and situations all the time, every time they perform. When they are in the same country, Pablo and Solomon meet weekly to rehearse their craft. Composed strictly of two instruments (drums by Pablo and bass by Solomon), the mysterious vocal influences of Solomon?s peculiar interpretation of his role in society, Sigmund Droid packs a serious punch of aggressive power punk laced with illusive and subtle electro new wave nuances.

Based in Manhattan?s lower east side, the duo pumps whatever creative energy that the surrounding cruel Gotham doesn?t suckle from their weary souls into their work, be it in their music, their website, their short films, or interlaced in the variety of awkward activities in which they constantly find the time to participate. Come have a listen and get to know Sigmund Droid. They have it in for you and your mind.

Atomic Tom

Claymation Velociraptor
"A year ago, Claymation Velociraptor was known only to patrons of forests and shrubs. Today there isn't an American who doesn't know their name, and their fame has spread quickly around the world.

Said one American visitor to England: "Only a hermit could be unaware of Claymation Velociraptor, and he'd have to be beyond range of television, newspapers, radio, records, and rioting fans." Said another, "They're the biggest hottest property in the history of show business"

The twosome - Huckleberry Hound and Mick Jagger - write, play, and sing a powerhouse music filled with zest and uninhibited good humor that make listening a sensation-filled joy. It's not rhythm and blues, it's not exactly rock and roll, it is their own special sound, or, as John Lennon put it, "Their music is just - well, their music."

Whatever it is, Claymation Velociraptor's robust roaring sound has stimulated a reaction the world itself describes as "RAPTORMANIA."
