Alec K . Redfearn & the Seizures & the Eyesores & the Amoebic Ensemble & the Haldols
Alec K. Redfearn is a band-leader, composer, sinister-master-mind, and noise-making accordion pioneer. I appreciate music that shocks listeners who only realize it’s an accordion after they recover. This is quite a fine vid of one of Mr. Redfearn’s staid-er performances. I dearly hope to get to experience his enormous-bands (the Eyesores, or the older Amoebic Ensemble or the fabled Haldols) one of these days. Maybe when our A.Noir Festival is big enough to bring in punk-accordion orchestras.
I like to note that Mr. Redfearn is from Providence, Rhode Island, home of H.P. Lovecraft. That may help explain things.
I’d still love to get more Haldols recordings if anybody’s got any. I dearly love this crazy stuff.
