Disco Missile

Headbone Theatre

We were on a bit of a WAR kick and emulating soul, funk and blues.  None of us could really remotely even try to mimic that kind of musician ship, well maybe Eddie could but, because he had formal musical training we kept the guitar out of his hands (except for special occasions).  No matter, we were playing soul music in spirit.  did i mention we were also really into Missing foundation and Steely dan?  Anything that would make you feel seasick after smoking week.  A mockery of rock n roll.  we wanted to be a rock band but never thought to sit down and write songs.  it was instant albulm creation.  Took us maybe 5 hours.  Just add water cause your gonna get cotten mouth!

Up until now I have had a lot to say about the Disco Missile recording sessions but the earlier ones are very hazy. Probably because I wasn’t used to the dosage, the sonic battery and it’s overpowering hypnotic effects.  What I do remember about this session was that it was our 3rdand a second attempt at recording with psychedelics but something was amiss.  Todd and Eddie ate the tabs and I was left with the odd pellet of mescaline.  As I was changing my guitar strings to nice clean ones, it came on strong and I decided not to tune them up!  Just let them hang, dangle, clink and clatter where they be, because it sounded like blues music to me …or crashing plate glass or wind chimes… I don’t know.   I kept forcing everyone to record another song, every time we finished I couldn’t just sit around else I knew I would get too batty.  I think everyone was exhausted by the end of it.

 Scottie was here blowing horn and maybe singing too I can’t remember so you’ll have ta listen in.  It’s a rough ride.  Don’t say ‘I didn’t warn ya’.  We sold maybe 6 cassette copies of this, really… and gave away even fewer.  A tough listen less you soften he blow by doping up first.  We recommended listening in headphones but that was a bad recommendation as the subjects would tend to turn a touch green the ‘go over’.  Good luck.

Disco Missile was an experimental noise rock pop soul blues punk band that took its cues from William s. Burroughs, the Merry Pranksters acid test high-jinx, Steely Dan and the Butthole Surfers.  The Missile recorded on 4 track cassette Tascam porta07 and porta242 with a variety of low rent mixers and radio shack microphones, a mash up of stomp boxes and processors.  Starting with Eddie Blade on Vocals, Keys and Drum Machine programing, Todd Vigorous on Bass and William Hellfire on guitar adding Scott George Beattie for additional vocals and trumpet then later recording with live percussion shifting  Todd on Drums, Eddie on bass and vocals and keeping Hellfire on guitar.

 

The band started out by experimenting with various psychedelics while recording day long improve sessions November of 1992.  Dolomite, Low Rent housing,  Headbone Theatre and Monoject being the sophomoric train wreck experiments that would lead to the bands more defined and psychically connected recordings of The Moon EP,  Vinegar Eel,  CV, Micro Cosmic Audio Distortions and The Infamous Suicide kit.  The latter two having many songs that were semi rehearsed or written before attempting to record with overdubbing of vocals and semi polish mixes.  The band broke up in summer 1995.
