Name of the Band: Joe Gideon & The Shark (London, England)
Who?: Gideon Joel Seifert (vocals, spoken word, bass, guitar) and his younger sister Viva Seifert (vocals, drums, piano)
Genre: post-rock, hypnotic blues with echoes from Gun Club, Velvet Underground, Bowie (“Heroes” album)
Works: Album ‘Harum Scarum’ (2009) / Album ‘Freakish’ (2013)
‘Louder than War’ about the new album: ‘Freakish’ is jammed with staggeringly infectious tune after tune, each and every one a serious rival to the cool vibe established in 1977 by ‘V-2 Schneider’( David Bowie / ‘Heroes’ Album). Just like all the best movie psychopaths, Joe Gideon tells his tales just a tiny bit too loudly – adding to an overall air of delicious disquiet.
