Christening themselves COAXIAL, the duo of BEEGS and DAVID K have been fine-tuning their skills at their Long Beach studio, recruiting local pals like Ikey (FMA) and his MARS VOLTA-bandmate, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, to contribute to their debut, a 5-track EP ("The Phantom Syndrome, GSL 2005). A futuristic hybrid of new and old-school techniques and styles, one track on the EP was even inspired by Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions. The band played SXSW '06, performing as a trio at the GSL/Skyscraper Magazine show. Summer 2006 sees the COAXIAL self-titled debut album emerge and not one but 2 tours planned for the west and eastern U.S., respectively.
Employing live instrumentation, scratching, and the raw-yet-vulnerable spoken-word musings of Beegs Alchemy, COAXIAL are certain to appeal to fans of SAUL WILLIAMS, DJ SHADOW, EL-P, and EMINEM.
