The full throttle, experimentally inclined rock-duo Cinema Cinema from Brooklyn releases their fourth full-length album Man Bites Dog!
Wailing guitars, abstracted and fragmented riffs, terrifying vocals from another dimension and loud loud drums transfigure the concept of raw. Born and raised in NYC, six-string slinging beardo Ev Gold and his drummer cuz Paul Claro are Brooklyn-diehards to the core. Consequentially this album was captured in Gowanus at the legendary studio of Martin Bisi. Just two days into the recording process, the band's work was thwarted by a break in. Gear was stolen, including all the band's guitars. Recording continued with borrowed instruments and a new sense of purpose; the raw, primal, intense music created was profoundly influenced by these circumstances.
Widely known for their breathtaking live-performances to this day Cinema Cinema has played 400 shows across 9 countries, did 7 tours alongside Greg Ginn & The Royal We, worked with various SST Records projects and played 50 shows with Black Flag in 2014.
2008, experi-metal punks Cinema Cinema have jacked up the amps to
ear-bleeding-loud levels, destroying DIY dives across the boroughs and beyond
with their distorto-drenched post-grunge and damaged-funk assault.”
