Pornographic Sunset: With cowboy country and progressive rock; funk, jazz, avant-garde…..

Pornographic Sunset - Gold; Flesh; Dirt

Daniel B. from Pornographic Sunset states, «We are an alternative rock/metal band from Leeds (UK) and we offers experimental elements! We have been described as ballistically bright and impossible to restrain, oblivious to expectations and willfully ignorant of boundaries and good taste».

«We have just released our second EP (10th December), Gold; Flesh; Dirt. This follows from our first release, The Bastard Shows His True Colours, which dealt with the rejection of lies and casting off the masks we wear to hide from each other and ourselves, and it explores the uncomfortable moment when we first gaze into a mirror without our armour of self-deception. It offers an incendiary mix of metal, cowboy country, progressive rock, funk, jazz, avant-garde and weird-for-the-hell-of-it experimentation»

The band also says, «We are Pornographic Sunset and we are fucking with you. Exploring experimental /progressive/punk/psychedelic rock/metal sound, – Gold; Flesh; Dirt is our sophomore album»

Walking with a strut in your step, a dance in your soul and an explosion of sunrise and fortitude in your head; pulling shapes on the border of sanity and turning cartwheels over normality. They don’t know they’re your audience but they are – background gasps and expressions of shock and horror, a chorus of ‘what’s possessed him?’ as you pirouette through their grey day in a blast of funk and colour. You can feel the blood riding a deep groove through your veins and your heart beats in an outrageous rhythm. It’s good to be alive…more alive than anyone has ever been!

Ballistic ally bright and impossible to restrain, oblivious to expectations and willfully ignorant of boundaries and ‘good taste’, Pornographic Sunset are a firework display against the night sky of reality. New EP, Gold; Flesh; Dirt fizzes with dangerous levels of exuberance and invites your body to move in sympathetic abandon. Even those who grow anxious at the very suggestion of tripping the light fantastic may find their internal organs twitching in a disconcerting display of unprecedented cool.

From Self In Solutions theatrical slide through your perceptions to the disturbing illusions of Session With Dr. Michaelson, on to the deftly darting confidence tricks of Diabolical and the marvelously multifaceted Dead People – Gold; Flesh; Dirt is one hell of a ride. Cowboy country and progressive rock; funk, jazz, avant-garde and weird-for-the-hell-of-it experimentation, Pornographic Sunset have got it all.

It’s not even been two years since Pornographic Sunset unveiled their debut release, The Bastard Shows His True Colours, but they have charged deeper into the territory of wild dreams and musical nightmares with reckless abandon. It’s as if they’re trying to advance at a rate which will inevitably lead to their end, in a detonation of creative fire – too much, too soon, too fast! Dive into this pool of many colours while you still have the chance and bask in the glory of a Pornographic Sunset.

About Ulf Backstrøm (7437 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
