Archive : Totally Michael with special guest Spod

This summer, Popfrenzy is bringing you two of the most freewheeling, party‐starting, hyperkinetic performers, touring the east coast together, ready to kick start your 2009.

Describing his sound as a “mohawked angel with a hose full of holy water blasting the wallflowers,” Totally Michael is a one‐man music machine with a penchant for sugar‐sweet melodies, potty‐mouthed humour and extensive audience participation.

There is a reason SPOD was nominated as best live performance at this year’s augural SMAC Awards. Through Atari duels, live Nintendo DS' moogs and so, so much more, SPOD’s live shows take you from psychedelic vintage synth‐epics about death to future‐metal anthems about bewbs, to post hip‐hop noise jams about the concept of time.

In an increasingly cynical world, it’s performers like SPOD and Totally Michael who draw a line in the sand and ask you to choose wisely...Catch them LIVE this summer on one of the following dates.

Describing his sound as a “mohawked angel with a hose full of holy water blasting the wallflowers,” Totally Michael is a one‐man music machine with a penchant for sugar‐sweet melodies, potty‐mouthed humour and extensive audience participation.

Citing Prince and Blink‐182 as influences, and bringing about comparisons to Andrew W.K., Dan Deacon and synth‐punk pioneer Atom and His Package, Totally Michael delivers dizzying, electro‐injected tracks that straddle the line between skater‐punk and bouncy‐pop and always revels in the forgotten joys of showmanship and booty shaking.

Plenty of load‐ponies have attempted to take the crown in the absence of Sir Spodlington, but after ‘08 hosted his return – with a successful album release and a national tour – it is clear the crown is once more safe and secure back on his sweet and kingly head.
