KOMODO WAGON BIOGRAPHY
"There is something for everyone in our music, yet integrity keeps us deeply rooted in the void between the sound of underground and mainstream rock n roll. Whether we play it ‘fast’ or ‘slow’ our goals are the same – ‘WE’ must: enjoy it, make it tuneful, powerful, thought provoking, exciting and unpredictable… ” (Troy Perlic)
The Debut album “Old Beauty & the Broken Cross” (translated to Portuguese – Linda Velha & Cruz Quebrada – well know Lisbon suburbs where the bands rehearsal garage / studio exists) is as clever and intriguing as the album title.
11 songs were captured and mixed at Generator Studios (PT – the studio owned and operated by Miguel Marques from Easyway) and subsequently Mastered at Masterdisk USA by the Legendary Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth – Clutch – the Beastie Boys, the Afghan Whigs, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Muse, KORN, the Strokes, Biffy Clyro, Deftones, Gorrilaz, and the Killers more recently.
The album is set for release in Portugal via iPlay Records January 12th. Antena 3 and Radar (Portuguese Radio stations supporting Rock) & Renegade Networks online (http://renegadenetwork.net/members/62/
) have been spinning advance tracks already.
Komodo Wagon songs
Include stories and themes that examine commonplace social practices, beliefs, faiths, and governments. Lyrics ‘challenge’ the audience / listener to examine both “the pretty” & “the ugly” sides of life in a unique but inviting manner.
The songs incorporate love, hate, sex, denial, optimism, relationships, entertainment, big city adventures and small town ideals representing the vast journey of singer / songwriter Troy Perlic’s existence thus far in life. Yet, somehow we get more from this band as a result of their unique attention to fundamental aspects of Rock music which seem to be missing in today’s charts and scenes. Believability, accountability, power, melody, and even grace are the real ‘turbines’ behind Komodo Wagon. The boys wear these traits on their sleeves, it's that simple.
The band draws from an extremely wide range of influences. Here are a few - Janes Addiction, the Cult, GnR, the Hellacopters, Metallica, Thin Lizzy, the Afghan Whigs, Buckcherry, Queens of the Stone Age, the Rolling Stones, Monster Magnet, the Cure, David Bowie etc etc.
