KEXP Live Videos: Black Eyes and Neckties @ Bumbershoot Music Lounge

Possibly the loudest and by far the most theatrical performance at the Bumbershoot Music Lounge this year, where KEXP was broadcasting from the festival grounds, was Black Eyes & Neckties. The Bellingham band specialize in horror-influenced, punk-infused rock, and band members Ryan Cadaver (guitar), Davey Crypt (drums), Josh Homicide (guitar), and The Fist (bass) thrash about the stage in makeup to look like the decomposing dead. Add to this, lead singer Bradley Horror rolling around stage in wheelchair, thanks to a recent leg fracture, yet still able to kick over amps and somehow seduce the electrifyingly vampy keyboardist Brenda Grimm. You can read an exclusive interview with Josh Homicide here, and witness the slaughter here:
