jaunt that included an appearance at the Nuits Sonores festival alongside
the likes of The Raincoats, Violent Femmes, Chicks on Speed, Stereo

and Underwear, and his compilation, Solo
Cholo, and moving to Washington, DC around the same time, underground
guitar legend Powers rarely performs in New York. His band, the Pink
Monkeybirds is currently a trio including drummer Danny Hole (Warlocks,
Nikki Sudden) and bassist Kiki Solas (Rhythm of Black Lines, Knife in
the Water). The bill also includes Parisian noise rockers Dimi Dero,

celebrated the release of their new EP, Sea
Potentia Divina, on Friday night at Williamsburg's
Glasslands Gallery alongside Pterodactyl, Print, Cause for Applause,
and the New York Night Train DJ's. For now you can buy their record
here and soon you'll be able to locate copies in stores
and on online MP3 sellers.
New York Night Train is proud to announce that
we've added local post-post-post-punk sensations S-S-S-Spectres to our
prestigious roster. Their debut EP, Sea Potentia Divina, is
scheduled for release in early March. For those still unaware, this
bouncy trio of scene vets create a unique dissonance that sits somewhere
between NY no wave murky-jerkyness, Providence angular disco, and UK
classic dance punk. The quirky vocal arrangements are unlike anything
you've ever heard. The official release party will be at the
Glasslands Gallery on March 2 and the record will be in stores on March
8. Climb on board.
