Beginning with a music career in San Diego which included titles of distinction such as cross-dressing dancer for Optiganally Yours, drums for Thingy, Followers, and Goblin Cock, bass for Alpha Males and, simply, “everything” in Schlag-Schlag, Brent Asbury has experience in most musical areas and genres.
Since his time in California, he took up producing and engineering at his current studio in Portland, Oregon — anything over the years from The Locust to Michael Bolton. Of course, then, it might be hard to imagine what his own dissonant brainchild might sound like today. The answer is, surely, none of the above– or at least, unlike any one conventional category. Asbury describes PANICKER as “blending aspects of EBM, industrial, techno and hip hop with the emotion of punk, hardcore, metal, experimental, and horror movie scores.” We describe it as a throbbing and decadent mindfucker.
Today Ghettoblaster has the pleasure of premiering the video for “Sticky Riot of Colors,” which offers and unsettling, drug addled account of bro bonding. The single comes from PANICKER’s EP, Blasphony, which will be available digitally via Three One G Records on October 5. Preorder here via Three One G | iTunes
