Posted in Music, News with tags , , , , on April 8, 2011 by darklordbunnykins

Skinny Puppy frontman and longtime collaborator Mark Walk return to making macabre music on the new ohGr album. unDeveloped drops May 10 on Metropolis Records and follows up 2008’s Devils in My Details.

In a press release, Ogre says of the new album: “The idea of a story, with developing characters that would spin off on their respective paths was something that hit a nerve and found a place during the recording of Devils… and wove its way into subsequent interactions with our listeners during the lead up to the release.”

Look for a review right here closer to street date.


TORONTO 1-YR ANNIVERSARY OF REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA SHADOW CAST THIS FRIDAY! DIRECTOR PRESENT!

Posted in Events, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , on January 20, 2010 by darklordbunnykins

"Graverobber, Graverobber..."

Perhaps not unexpectedly, the cult of director Darren Lynn Bousman’s oddball Goth rock opera Repo! The Genetic Opera — the one that co-starred Paris Hilton, Skinny Puppy’s Ogre and Buff’y‘s Anthony Stewart Head — continues to thrive, with multiple “shadow casts” (who, Rocky Horror Picture-style, act out the on-screen action live and in costume) popping up across North America in the wake of its release back in the fall of ’08. Toronto’s company, the “Repo! Shadow Cats,” are celebrating their one-year anniversary this Friday, Jan. 22, at The Bloor Theatre with a special Repo burlesque show “where all your favourite Repo characters will be stripping down” apparently. Largo, too?

Bousman will be there and The Dark Lord Bunnykins is trying to wrangle the man into an on-camera interview to discuss the Repo! phenomenon yet again. We’ll also ask about his upcoming re-imagining of the Troma “classic” Mother’s Day, his recent wedding, and his thoughts on that other organ repossession film coming out this spring, Repo Men.

So come out to the Bloor to “celebrate one year of organ reposessions, blood, boobs and dirty humour.”

More details are available on the Shadow Cats’ Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/event.php?eid=226738229135&index=1.

See you at the opera!
