Falsetto Madness – ‘Didn’t I’ (Darondo Cover) Live Video

Yes, a few crazed people captured fragments of our show last month at The Church (Williamsburg, Brooklyn). Thanks to Yael for capturing this one, to B.A. Miale for the background projections, and thanks to Gina & Leane Clifton for the encouragement  to cover this tune. Sometimes you need a push to follow the bliss, in this case Darondo’s 1973 song, ‘Didn’t I’. Personnel: Anton on vox, keyboard & programming; Gina Marie Rodriguez on bass, backing vox; Michael Lawson (grooving in the darkness on the left), guitar.

April Update: New Party-Show, New Track

Little darlings, it’s been a long, cold lonely winter, and I’ve let things lapse. Now we’re awake and back.

New Show

First and foremost: The next Anton Sword show worth going to is Saturday April 27 at The Church, the sporadic loft party on the Williamsburg-Bushwick border (142 Manhattan Avenue, between Montrose and Meserole, quite accessible by subway). If you haven’t come before, come now, because Sword & Slave (Anton, Gina on bass & Michael on guitar) will be joined by fabulous adorable Skatebirds, who are returning from France to sing their garage-pop songs about life in Lorraine and visits to our ‘hood. The legendary Sans Culottes will also play at the end of the night, as well as the excellent local band Discovery, and there will again be spectacular psychedelic back projections by the video-keyboard playing B.A. Miale. Preceding the night is an Art show in the same space. You can therefore visit this hall of culture heavenly and hellish at 7 pm and have your various needs satisfied without ever leaving until 4 a.m. Yeah there’s only one bathroom, but you’ll be so entertained and happy you’ll forget you’ll need to go.

Here is a link to the Facebook event for those of you who are on FB:
Time Bender’s Ball Sat April 27

New Track

In the meantime there is a new track – actually an old song,  written decades ago but only recently recorded in NYC and then mixed by the fabulous and adorable Ingo Krauss at Berlin’s Candybomber studio. We don’t claim it will change the world or much of anything, but it is something. There will be more to come througout the spring and summer.

Play ‘Leading To The Ledge (Candybomber Mix)’

(The lyrics are below, at the bottom of this post).

Sometimes an old tune has to get finished, even though it may not represent the most current vision. It’s clogging the channel, and needs to get done just to make room for other, newer stuff waiting to emerge. Personnel on this track: me on vox, keys & programming as always; Michael Lawson on guitars; Gina Marie Rodriguez on bass. Recorded in NYC by me, with special help from the golden-eared Carl Barc; mixed & mastered by Ingo Krauss at Candybomber, Berlin.

New Gear

What else? During the winter I partly occupied myself acquiring and exploring a lot of new equipment, hard and soft. Know what I mean? Here’s some hard:

for many questions, the answer is simply MORE KNOBS

for many questions, the answer is simply MORE KNOBS

despite the predominance of the Moog logo, my favorite right now is that square semi-modular synth-box, which is called a ‘Dark Energy.’

In the soft realm I also acquired a plug-in that’s called the ‘Voice of God’. It looks like the black monolith from ‘2001: a space odyssey’ and its purpose is to give one more control of low-frequency resonance. Between the Dark Energy and the Voice of God a new universe may very well be created, but it will probably take until mid-summer at least. But enough Sonic Theology!

New Misc

MEYLENSTEIN, Berlin-based multi-media designer extraordinaire, has been busily making a video for ‘The Air’ (from last spring’s ‘Here in the Hurricane’ release). It should be ready soon!

Here are two pix from the last Sword & Slave show at The Church:

New Fall Europe Tour

And it looks like we’ll be returning to Europe in late September if we cobble together enough shows. If anyone wants us to play a particular place, we’ll gladly consider whether it fits the tour schedule, so just contact:  earworm@antonsword.com.

That’s all for now. Oh, here are the lyrics to ‘Leading To The Ledge’. They date from the days I was still writing obsessively in couplets:

Our love’s a combination lock set in an ancient safe
We work the picks and the cylinders until our fingers chafe
Kneeling there together sweating underneath our masks
We both got so tired of questions we never even asked

Partners in crime, our treasure is unhoardable
What’s yours? What’s mine? The portions are unsortable
We bit the dust and tried to split the take to escape
But all our dynamite couldn’t put the wine back in the grape

Our secret names all blew away in dead confetti mail
And all our dreams in bottles from the belly of the whale
They spilled out across the flood but could not make a bridge
No they just rolled out a thin red carpet leading to the ledge

Love is a word with a hole punched in the center
The silence may hurt but it lets the pleasure enter
Still upstairs in the bedroom dresser in the back of the bottom drawer
There is a crumpled paper ball that won’t unfold anymore

(repeat the chorus).

New Video for ‘Here in the Hurricane (Single Version)’

Orlando S. Gondar at OSGFilms & Anton have made a video for Anton’s 2012 single mix of ‘Here in the Hurricane’ (from the EP of the same name), shot at April 2012’s live show at The Church, Williamsburg, and featuring the fabulous We Ours: Gina Marie Rodriguez on bass, Michael Lawson and Julian Maile on guitars, and Kristin Mueller on drums. We think Orlando did a great job capturing the night’s mood (and the song’s). We’re happy (but still dark).

Oh, and if you really like the tune, you can download it here:
