When it comes to hip cache, Blonde Redhead is second to none. The art-noise trio comprised of Kazu Makino and the brothers Pace (Simone and Amadeo) has been on the cutting edge of the New York art-rock scene since its first, mid-’90s releases.

The group’s breakthrough came in 2000 with Melody of Uncertain Lemons, a disc that found a balance between Blonde Redhead’s discordant guitar noise and its softer, more melodic side. The record went on to sell over 50,000 copies, and pushed the band to the forefront of the indie-rock scene. Its audience continued to grow, mostly through word-of-mouth, and by the 2003 disc Misery is a Butterfly, Blonde Redhead’s voice had become stronger, clearer, and more distinctive. Along with its records, the band’s cathartic live performances­-with the almost psychic interplay between the three members--have given the unit a reputation as one of the most intense acts in rock, though its offbeat, boundary-pushing music has also gained the attention of jazz festival organizers and audiences. Along with a tour, a new album is expected in early 2007.

Blonde Redhead (Indie Rock)

Life and Music: Bounding them tightly together to the point of confusing them. This has been Blonde Redhead's way of life since first meeting. In a restaurant in New York city they came together by chance, and have been a band ever since. more info
