MP3 Collisionville - I S
10 MB PHP File - Platform: MP3

We fuse a loud, post-punk sound with down-home Americana to create sardonically sincere songs that are well put together and streaked with the humor that eludes more self-serious bands, says Eliot Van Buskirk of Wired Magazine.

"Northern California's Collisionville fuses a loud, post-punk sound with down-home Americana to create sardonically sincere songs that are well put together and streaked with the humor that eludes more self-serious bands." -Eliot Van Buskirk, Wired Magazine

"Stephen Pride's song craft is dynamic, full of unexpected turns..." -Dan Vermont, The Owl Mag

"I think Frank Zappa would have liked some of Collisionville's music .It's funny and insinuating; it creeps up on you. It's got fucked time signatures and whacked guitar parts played because that's how the composition was going and they took themselves seriously in the right way..." -Brian Keizer (Spin Magazine & the SF Bay Guardian)

Hey, do you live in Fallujah? Or maybe you used to live in New Orleans but now your house is at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico? Can your car run on dried-up bacon grease? Do you have any money left? You didnât leave it all with the bank, did you? Who the hellâs been running this place, anyway?

Oakland, Califoriniaâs Collisionvilleâguitarist/vocalist Stephen Pride, drummer Ben Adrian, and bassist Conor Thompsonâare dealing with these insane times by cranking out tunes reminiscent of â80s & â90s staples like The Pixies, The Replacements, or the whole SST campâonly in a post-grunge world, where Reaganomics long since gave way to the Bush body politic thatâs left us high and dry.

Fittingly, the bandâs second full-length, I Spied A Spider, will drop January 20th, 2009âBushâs last day in office. While 2005âs Hotter Heads Prevail indulged frontman Prideâs post-punk leanings, Spider draws heavily on other influences, infusing Collisionvilleâs already-rollicking sideshow with Americana twang, and giving Pride a chance to display his ample banjo chops.

The albumâs packed with confessionals that wryly lay out good times and badâhell, mostly bad. The people in these songs have no power to affect things politically, personally, internally. Still, Prideâs dour lyrics are so riddled with humor they canât quite mask the secret optimist. âYou still got nine good fingers / There's a guy outside who'd kill for your job / His family's eatin' shit for dinnerâ spits Pride on the plodding rocker âKeep The Sweatshops Blazinâ.â âPlease Spare the Life of Your Cocaine Dealerâ marries flip lyrics fitting of its title with a hillbilly-via-Brit-Invasion shuffle. And what of that twang? âAnother Cold Shoulderâ is a Gram Parsons-style barnburner, and âSleeping in a Treeâ rattles off plenty of mutant Neil Young swagger.

And so the story takes another turn. These past eight years, Collisionville have been measuring their frustrations in decibels, and I Spied a Spider is the byproduct. January 20th, 2009. Donât let the Oval Office door hit your ass on the way out.
