PINK NOISE TEST Plasticized 1997

by request
 
  
Artist Biography by
Pink Noise Test added an edgy rock buzz to candy-coated '60s pop, drenching it with white noise and feedback. Their punk undertones should come as no surprise, considering the band members' history: guitarist Kirk Hellie and drummer Peter Kelley had previously played in the Steve Jones Band, lead by Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols. Along with vocalist Lawrence Glass and bassist Michael Hill, the group issued the five-song Electric Train EP in 1996. Shortly after the release of Plasticized, a full-length debut that did fairly well on the college charts, the band called it quits. Hellie pursued several other projects, such as Purr Machine, which includes Kelley on drums.

Artist Biography by

The Western-tinged, hard-edged rock & roll of Headstones began in the late '80s in Ontario, Canada, and consists of vocalist Hugh Dillon, guitarist Trent Carr, bassist Tim White, and drummer Dale Harrison. The band signed to MCA in 1993 and soon after released Picture of Health, followed by Teeth & Tissue. Headstones broke more ground in 1996 with Juno Award nominations for Best Group and Best Rock Album, while releasing Smile & Wave that same year. Three years passed before Nickels for Your Nightmares, in which time Carr and Harrison became fathers and Dillon recovered from a drug addiction. Dillon has also found success in acting, appearing in several films, including Hard Core Logo and Dance Me Outside.

Artist Biography by

Japanese pop-noise savant Cornelius was born Keigo Oyamada in 1969; a self-taught guitarist inspired early on by Kiss and Black Sabbath, his musical alias was later chosen as an homage to the Planet of the Apes film series. A product of the same Shibuya-kei bubblegum scene that also gave rise to Pizzicato Five, Cornelius debuted in 1993 with the EP Holydays in the Sun, the first release from his own Trattoria label. He became a national teen idol in the wake of the release of 1994's full-length The First Question Award and a year later he issued the album 69/96, followed in 1996 by the remix LP 96/69. Released in 1997, Fantasma was his creative and commercial breakthrough, a kaleidoscopic, genre-hopping joy ride through contemporary musical history that became Cornelius' first American release when it was reissued by Matador a year later. Another pair of remix collections, CM and FM, followed in 1999. 2002's Point took Cornelius's sound in a more streamlined yet abstract direction that was echoed by 2006's Sensuous. The album was released in the U.S. in spring 2007. Sensurround, which featured Sensuous' videos and B-sides, arrived in fall 2008.
