Schism - Tribute to Tool
Bred and spread out of Manhattan spiraling out.....ABOUT THE BAND - Not many cover or tribute bands out there ever attempt to engage in the raw talent, mysticism, and magic that is TOOL. But if you talk to four brave souls from New York City (Angelo Rivera- Vocals; Sean Murray- Bass; Donald Pusateri- Drums; Keith Williams- Guitar). Their love and passion for this music led them to form SCHISM. New York City's premier TOOL tribute band. "We started this back in 2001, after seeing a TOOL show at Madison Square Garden. We simply loved the music and wanted to share it live with other TOOL minded fans" says SCHISM guitarist Keith Williams. "We've been a national touring act for almost 14 years now. This isn't something you tap your foot to, this is more of an interactive experience for listener. These songs are compositional masterpieces, which will be studied for years to come". If you've never had the chance to see TOOL live, here's your local opportunity, and truly a job well done. We invite you of the collective unconscious to share with us the experience of TOOL/Schism.
Green Jelly
Green Jelly
Green Jelly began life as Green Jello in 1981 in Kenmore, NY. The name was chosen due to the band's poor opinion of that flavor, and they decided that it also appropriately reflected the quality of their music. The band never attempted to be good, deciding instead to "disguise their lack of ability with stupid props," as their liner notes put it. The group appeared on The Gong Show touting themselves as the world's worst band, but the real turning point came when they met GWAR in 1988 and learned how to sculpt props and costumes with latex, papier-mache, chicken wire, and couch cushions. They attracted a small, curious following with their bizarre, cartoonish look and wound up signing with Zoo Records as a video-only band. They released a video album called "Cereal Killer," using simple, bubblegum metal songs as an excuse to dance around in silly costumes, and the clay-animation video for "Three Little Pigs" became an MTV hit, spawning the release of an EP and later. the full soundtrack to the video album. With success came lawsuits for trademark infringement; the band was forced to change their name to Green Jelly and also had to put an edited version of "Cereal Killer" on their audio release, as the cereal companies whose mascots were murdered in the video did not take kindly to it. Bandmembers, who have exceeded 74 in number over the years, perform under aliases such as Marshall Staxx and Jesus Quisp. The band was able to sell records based on their visual weirdness for several years, doing fine up through the mid-'90s. By this time they had convinced BMG music to co-finance Green Jellÿ Studios, an audio and visual production house that opened its doors in 1994 on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, CA. That same year, Green Jelly supplied the first-ever video game soundtrack for Spider-Man & Venom: Maximum Carnage, based on the Marvel Comics characters. The group released a final single, a duet version with Hulk Hogan of Gary Glitter's "I'm the Leader of the Gang (I Am)," in 1995, then called it quits and went their separate ways, until 2008, that is, when the reunited. A new album, Musick to Insult Your Intelligence By, followed in 2009
