Video: Antemasque Perform In The Lurch Live

Fans of At The Drive In and the Mars Volta will prick up their pointy ears at the sound of Antemasque. The two constants of both aforementioned bands (guitarist Omar Rodrigeuz-Lopez and vocal howler Cedric Bixler-Zavala) have formed a new equation which equals rock.

The two are joined by post-2009 Mars Volta drummer David Elitch, and bass player Marfred Rodriguez-Lopez* (Omar’s brother who claims he started out on guitar before Omar!).

It’s no secret that I’m counting down the number of days until I get to see the ‘masque in action. Pity, I’ll have to wait until the other side of Christmas until they arrive in Melbourne. Don’t they know that Nick Cave always** comes home to visit his mum for Christmas?

* I’m yet to determine how many Rodriguez-Lopez brothers there are. I’m not going to try to count them as that let’s me believe that they could be like Babushkas (which are those Russian dolls that are hard to spell).
** Almost always, perhaps not when he was consumed by heavy substances.

About noisynoodle

I am a noisy noodle hailing from Melbourne, Australia who loves listening to noise in all forms, but preferably in music, TV and film. I’ve moonlighted on community radio at SYN-FM many years ago when I was still a “youth”. My mission is to promote live music (get off your bum and see something!), highlight interesting TV shows that are ignored by the ratings, expose some cool films and to not go deaf trying!
