Biography All Music Guide

All Music Guide:

After the dissolution of The Clone Defects in 2004, Timmy Vulgar formed the mind-expanding, speaker-destroying band Human Eye shortly afterwards in Detroit, Michigan. Consisting of Vulgar on guitar and vocals, as well as Johnny LZR on synthesizers, Brad Hales on bass, and Hurricane William on drums, the band blends raw punk fury with blown-out garage psych to create a whirlwind of acid punk chaos. The band made their self-titled debut in 2005 on In the Red Records, and quickly made a name for themselves with their chaotic live shows that draw audiences in with their use of props and insane visuals. After a steady stream of limited singles, Human Eye released their second album, Fragments of the Universe Nurse, on Hook or Crook in 2010, then followed up quickly in 2011 with They Came from the Sky.

The openers were Crystal Stilts, a Brooklyn group with no records out whose moody and noisy music pushed all the right buttons. I quickly befriended the group, especially guitarist JB Townsend and his then-girlfriend Frankie Rose, whose own band Vivian Girls were soon-to-be favorites.… more »

Label Profile: Sacred Bones Records

By David Raposa, Contributor

File Under: Dark pop, mysterious noise, industrial punk, and everything in between Flagship Acts: Zola Jesus, Moon Duo, Gary War, the Men Based In: Brooklyn, New York It only took two releases for the then-fledgling Sacred Bones Records to find their identity. The label's first record, a 7-inch from Denver-area band the Hunt (friends of Sacred Bones founder Caleb Braaten), looks like a run-of-the-mill single. When the label put out Blank Dogs' Diana (The Herald) EP, however, the… more »
