David Ivy Of Idiot Stare & SPF1000: Blinded / Witch Hunt (320kbps)


Now for something new- (keep in mind that I consider anything post-1995 to be 'new')- David Ivy is a multi-instrumentalist from the LA area.  His father played drums for a band called Devils Disciples, a deathmetal band from Las Vegas and his mother played piano.  He was a member of the band Idiot Stare and played on their first album Blinded, released in 1995.  Fans of bands like Ministry, The Electric Hellfire Club and KMFDM will surely like both of these releases, but Witch Hunt is clearly the hands down favorite having a darker, less metal, type of sound.  David had been touring the LA circuit for quite some time before his album Witch Hunt was released in 2003- it was long awaited by those in the know- and well worth it!  An article on lollipop.com had this to say about the album:

"Witch Hunt opens with a sweeping, soaring, Carl Orff-like score that soon dives into an electro-death roar that strikes like an abrupt kick to the head by a combat boot-wielding spider. David Ivy's brainchild, SPF 1000, debuts with a concept album that expresses the caustic rage of those who might feel ostracized because of their quirky personality and manner of dress. The bruising "Horror Show" is a laundry list of disenfranchised interests, while "Agenda" offers a lashing at the mainstream from our jeering tattooed and pierced brethren. A multi-layered offering with nice power-chord guitar hooks and oozing synths."

Combat boot-wielding spiders folks, what more could you ask?  As a bonus I'm including the song "Darkness" by SPF1000- a demo track that was used in The Grimm Adventures Of Billy & Mandy... if you can't dance to SPF 1000, then you can't dance, and if you don't know who Billy & Mandy are, then you might as well walk off the planet altogether- Enjoy!
