Country, Crown and Throne – Cinquanta: A Perfect Circle, Puscifer and Failure Live at the Greek Theatre

May 11th, 2014
Comments Off

There was a time not that long ago when the world was just becoming familiar with a little band called Tool. Los Angeles residents and show attendees of the time were already clued in to what was happening, but most in the U.S. and the world at large were just getting exposed to the band and its singer with the sharp, haunting voice, Maynard James Keenan, through the band’s claymation videos regularly played on MTV. Twenty years on, Tool is a musical juggernaut. One of the top grossing touring rock bands in all of the world, and one of the most respected and beloved bands heavy music has ever known. Capable of rocking with the hardest of metallic crunch, but still accessible enough that those that struggle with metal’s often guttural, monster truck vocals aren’t dissuaded.

Interview: Juliette Commagere on Musical Family Ties, Raucous Crowds and Tour Joys and Tribulations

Los Angeles concertgoers are frequently spoiled by amazing line-ups. Recently at The Echo, I caught a vision of neon light, LA native Juliette Commagere, who rocked out royally on keyboard and whose performance, supported by her legendary father-in-law Ry Cooder, lingered with me. Running home, I eagerly explored this former Hello Stranger lead singer’s discography, highlighted by her latest offering, Human.

Mxdwn spoke with Juliette recently, in the middle of rehearsal for a show she’ll perform on top of a Mexican pyramid with Maynard James Keegan’s (of Tool and A Perfect Circle) Puscifer. We had lots to chat about and touched upon topics which yielded some warm and revealing stories. Visit Juliette’s site and watch for a new EP coming out soon.

A Live Introduction

To be a fan of Maynard James Keenan is to follow him to some curious and often dark places. The is especially true of Keenan’s side project/solo/collaborative experiment Puscifer. A decade old now, Puscifer mixes insult comedy, desert mythology and the kind of soundtrack that sticks in the back of your consciousness. The project is at turns goofy, offensive and haunting. All sides are on display in the new CD/DVD What Is…. Read more…
