Cameron’s MidCoast Breakdown: The Midwest Has Some Treats To Offer SXSW 2012

Schedule for MidCoast Takeover at SXSW, 2012

Hey there, rockers!! I really can’t stress just how excited The Dead Girls are to be a part of MidCoast Takeover this year. This showcase has become the premiere non-official SXSW event for Midwest bands, so tight that even a score of national bands clamor to be added each year. I’m not totally sure how this year’s lineup stacks up to those of past years, but 2012’s collection of KC area and national bands would be enough to make me want to hitchhike down to Austin if my band wasn’t already playing homemade inflatable tent. Twenty-six KC bands have been chosen to represent this year, and while that is quite a lot, I have no doubt in my mind they are all great choices. I haven’t heard them all, but I look forward to finally hearing some bands that people have been buzzing on for awhile, like We Are Voices, The Empty Spaces, Maps for Travelers, and so many more. For the sake of getting down to the nitty gritty of just how awesome this MCT lineup is, though, I’m going to do a breakdown of some of the bands I have already come to know and love, and the bands with whom I am most excited about causing a good old-fashioned Austin ruckus.

You've been Dando'd!

Some of you might be wondering, “Hey haven’t you played with these dudes before?” You would be correct, wise man…but not with this record and not with this band. In fact, the last time the Dead Girls played with Evan Dando, we were the Lemonheads. In the most improptu clusterf#ck fashion, Evan spastically agreed to a few songs, we learned them in the living room of our friend’s house, and played them that night at the Starlight. It was amazing, and amazingly awkward with Dando’s incessant nervous ticks and bizarro behavior. He borrowed my axe, strummed a few ditties and then disappeared in the shadows. Last thing I remember is waking up with a silver bullet hangover and a missing guitar tuner… …at least he left the guitar.

Let’s Go Eat the Factory: Robert Pollard Fading as GBV Captain

Guided by Voices Inc 2012

If there is one person I can say I have loved, hated, been obsessed with, been completely frustrated with, wished I had never heard of or wished I could be all at the same time, that person would be Robert Pollard. My feelings about the aged Guided By Voices songwriting captain (or Fading Captain, as he has come to be known) have undergone more of a rigorous emotional rollercoaster than any I have had about any songwriter – maybe even any girl. Yes, I am that gay for GBV.inflatable bouncers Seriously, though – what other reaction is to be expected from such an inconsistent catalog of music? Those initial GBV albums that changed my life forever – starting with Bee Thousand through Under the Bushes, Under the Stars – set such a high bar for rock music back in the mid-nineties, even with all their garage-y, lo-fi anomalies. Something about the quality of that music, even when presented as shitty recordings, was undeniable. And with 85%-90% of the songwriting being credited to Pollard on those records, it would be easy for anyone to think that he was the backbone of this era of GBV. Continue reading

Record Bar this Saturday will be WILD!

There is a bright and sexy future for Kansas City this weekend because Chicago’s The Flavor Savers are flying their giant

futuristic spaceship full of hot beats and electric moves into town to restore sexiness to our people. Saturday night May 14 The Dead Girls are playing with Romeo DanceCheetah, Rodney Bel-Aire, Bronco Festiva, and Luke Hotcicle, better known as Bonnaroo faves The Flavor Savers. The band is an Illa-noise, sex-beat, electro-rap, man-coterie from another dimension. Their electronic beats, live instrumentation, synchronized dance moves, and sexy banter leave every audience they’ve rocked hot, wet, and dying for more United States.

This show, at Westport’s The Record Bar, is the official CD release and birthday party for KC’s own Patrick Lentz. And as if this eclectic offering weren’t enough, St. Louis hip-hop legends The Illphonics will be opening the show. Hott!! This promises to be a very different show for us, and we hope you’ll come out. Make sure and get there early, cuz we are on second.

Dead Girls Do Air

[originally published on Record Geek Heaven“]

All four Dead Girls will be competing in this year's championship being held in KC May 19.

For those of you who do not know,

I play in a band called The Dead Girls from Lawrence, KS, and we appreciate good rock and roll. That’s the music we want to make, plain and simple. Sure, we have our little hoo-ha’s here, and our whats-its there, but all in all, to make a good and steamy rock product is what we try to do. And I would be remiss if I didn’t say that our drummer Eric Melin – or Mean Melin to the Air Guitar Nation – is our golden chariot to the promised land in that respect. Not only is Melin one of the best, most solid drummers on the planet, but he is brimming with the knowledge and passion of glorious, lick-drenched guitar rock. Present since a very early age, it has allowed him to develop his own art of Air Guitar (see his instructional video) and to effectively spread his love of it to others.

Thanks to his contributions of Aireoke and his championing of the Air guitar Nation to his local followers and peers – not to mention two consecutive appearances at the National Air Guitar Championships – Mean Melin has become a world-renown air guitar hero. In the world of the Dead Girls, Melin is still the drummer – but he has also begun to merge his double life into one brand new organic ball of awesomeness by integrating the Dead Girls with the bourgeoning world of Air Guitar. The Dead Girls’ first experiment of this merging has already been blogged about on usairguitar.com – an Air Guitar video collage set to our song “Hair Trigger”, from our new album Out of Earshot out on Rocket Heart Records. It features the four Dead Girls in our much sought-after Air Guitar personas – Eric as Mean Melin, JoJo as Das Auto Bomb, Nick as Peter Stiffdickens, and me, Cameron, as Pork Sword. The footage was taken from an Air Guitar competition last February in Topeka, KS. None of
