Surplus 1980 & Voco at the 16th Annual Outsound New Music Summit

July 28, 2017
7:30 pm
Community Music Center

Surplus 1980 is a San Francisco Bay Area-based post-punk band founded in 2009 by former Sleepytime Gorilla Museum multi-instrumentalist Moe! Staiano. As alluded to in its name, Surplus 1980's music takes cues from the angular bands of the 1980s such as Dog Faced Hermans and Diagram Brothers and fuses it with the heavy, fierce attack pioneered by The Ex and The Fall to create their own blend of modern no-wave angst....Voco strives to push the edges of music and the conventional expectations of the power trio. Drawing on an extensive wealth of musical and thematic influences stretching deep into the past, and far into the imagined future, VOCO puts forth 10 original compositions that contort conventional riff-based instrumental rock as they shift genre, tempo, time signature, and dynamics. Listeners will find themselves entrapped in Zappa-esqe guitar solos, beaten by Norwegian Black Metal influenced blast beats, and stimulated with sounds spanning from delicate soft passages to atmospheric re-entry.
