Sci-Fi Squalor: Pittsburgh's Microwaves will Play Cafe Ventana This Friday

Categories: DIY

Microwaves' St. Louis show on Friday is one of many in a Midwest tour in the run-up to the band's new record, Regurgitant Phenomena. The album will be for sale along with a new cassette tape titled Hot System, which features unreleased tracks from past lineups.

"It is a 'rarities' collection," Kuzy says. "It contains covers of 'The Hellion' and 'Too Much Paranoias,' recorded when we were a duo. There is a song called 'The Pincher,' recorded with Steve Moore. This was supposed to be for a compilation of one-minute songs, all called 'The Pincher,' that never came out. The lyrics are based on the H.P. Lovecraft short story Pickman's Model. It also contains live tracks with Moore and unreleased studio tracks with Jason Jouver, recorded after hours in the office cubicles of Pittsburgh's first -- now gone -- ISP."

Microwaves has favored quality over quantity, releasing only five albums in more than ten years of playing. Two of those records have dropped in the last two years, marking a prominent rise in the band's output. Catch the band and pick up its latest tape and record this Friday at Cafe Ventana at 8 p.m.
