Live Video: Electric Tickle Machine on the Morning Show

A short while back, Electric Tickle Machine performed live on the Morning Show with John Richards. Without even an album to their ridiculous name, the East Village quartet — Thomas Olivier (guitar, vocals), Ryan Renn (keyboards), Adam Kautz (drums) and Clark Phillips (percussion) — has been drawing crowds based solely on their three MySpace demos and their explosive live shows. Fans of lo fi psychedelic tinged rock of The Velvet Underground, The Dandy Warhols, and Brian Jonestown Massacre are sure to entranced by ETM’s bluesy, jangling, rollicking take on the genre. Here they are performing “Part of Me” and “Bone” live on KEXP:
