So, this is something of a shameless plug for The Goat, who promises me he will return will some prose soon. Look — I’ll get straight to it: this weekend, if you are in or around the area of Connecticut, you need to go to this show!
Sleazehounds Nightbitch (featuring guitarist The Goat — a.k.a. “His Emissary” of Metal Blade’s foremost insulters of Jesus Christ, Ipsissimus) have chosen a most auspicious venue to celebrate the tracking of its forthcoming Chainmaker 7-inch.
The occult-minded and exploitation-obsessed trio will be performing tomorrow night — yes tomorrow night…that’s October 29 — at Ruby’s II, which just happens to be an all-nude, BYOB strip joint in scenic Bridgeport, Connecticut. The set will serve as part of the bad man club’s annual Halloween bash.
This will be Nightbitch’s second time at Ruby’s — the first having been a clandestine warm-up gig on the eve of last year’s Dublin Doom Day, where the band backed Hour of 13 for their live debut. Rhode Island intrumental overlords Thrillhouse will be joining Nightbitch for this celebration of infernal excess.
The Chainmaker EP follows the band’s Sex & Magic debut. It was recorded by friend and Ipsissimus producer Jeff Weed, who is currently mixing the effort at his own Sonic Environments studio in Bloomfield, Connecticut.
Chainmaker will be released on 7-inch vinyl by Connecticut’s Redscroll Records (a brick-and-mortar RECORD store with an emphasis on “record”) and contain the title track, a cover of Deep Purple’s “Into the Fire” and the song “Disrober,” for which the band will be shooting a video The Goat promises “will make the ‘She Rides’ video look restrained…Imagine Jean Rollin, Russ Meyer and Kenneth Anger locked in a whorehouse with the first four Danzig albums and that’s a start.”
I will be there so you will also get to meet/fight me, if you want. Here’s a video of Nightbitch doing what they do.
