Evolution Via Machinegun
Evolution Via Machinegun
Nobody moshed, nodded their heads, or even looked as if they could ever enjoy the music. The band received fifty dollars for their artistic endeavours, which went to support their new-found "dogging" habit. The bands second show featured an appearance by Fredrick Jackson the Twice, also known by his rap name of Cornelius Grizzlebazzle, or C.Grizz (a select few may remember him from his comedy routine under the pseudonym "Gordzekiel"). Fredrick played the harmonica on a few songs, and added quite a nice touch to the bands sound. Crowd reactions at this show were much better than the first, although the band never got paid again. The bands last show "The Death of Evolution Via Machingun: The Birth of Murdercore" had limited edition full-color flyers printed, and was widely publicized.
It, like all of the bands shows, was held at The Black Sheep Cafe. The band refused to go on until Pat showed up, delaying their performance by fifteen to twenty minutes. Pat rushed in with his bass, his combo amp, and no cable, and immediately began destroying his amp the second the first open D in "We Rule The Streets" grunted it's way through Alex's speaker cabinet. Sometime during the set Alex drop-kicked a stratocaster in half, and by the end of the performance Pat had reduced his combo to nothing but splinters and pieces of metal strewn all over the floor of the cafe. Although the bands last show was billed as "The last show.
We swear." popular demand at Black Sheep and in town forced the band to play many more reunion shows than real shows. These have taken place mostly during the several Black Sheep Fests that have occured over the years, and at Donner Party Of Five shows, of which Tim and Alex were members. The band wrote new material for their summer 2009 performances, which differed substantially from their older pieces. Not only did these new songs have more dynamic structure, but they were much more based in grindcore and melodic noisecore than their earlier songs, which were more punk influenced.
Following is partial and abridged history of EVM orchestrations. Early Works: We Rule The Streets Q-Tricerotops Pears Ska Recent Works: More Smores The Song Dedicated to Walt Disney Never Performed: Stinkbomb "We Rule The Streets" remains the only song to be performed at every EVM event. The most recent "last" show consisted of an unbroken set of their newest, currently unrecorded, and mostly untitled concept album. Technical and financial constraints forced the band to abandon the visual aspect of the show and instead rely solely on spoken word and melodic interludes to aid the audience in conceptualizing the bands artistic vision. The show received mixed reviews, and was not widely discussed in intellectual circles Call it murdercore. Call it art rock.
Call it noise. Whatever you call it EVM IS NOT OVER. EVM WILL NEVER DIE. Read more on Last.fm.
