OK City might not seem like the kind of town that would spawn a band quite like Stardeath and the White Dwarfs. Of course taking stock in this performance at the World's Fair CMJ Showcase reveals plenty that would suggest these acid lovin' aliens might have a hard time calling anywhere home. Tight and tacky jumpsuits, double kick drums, a seizure inducing light show, a mountain of keyboards, and heady, psychedelic melodies…Stardeath and the White Dwarfs do awfully right by that cosmic namesake of theirs. And speaking of names…you know who else these boys do proud? Uncle Wayne. It seems singer Dennis Coyne can call the Flaming Lips' iconic leader family. Suddenly, it all starts to make a little more sense, huh? – David Pitz
Stardeath and White Dwarfs was born in late 2004 in Oklahoma City, and released its debut EP in the spring of 2005. Members Dennis Coyne, Casey Joseph, Matt Duckworth, and Philip Rice create their own brand of genre bending sound that might occur if King Crimson and Coldplay got stoned and had sex with each other. They are currently in the studio working on their first full length record with Trent Bell of Chainsaw Kittens fame. Expect to hear the new stuff in the near future, But in the mean time you can checkout there sense assaulting laser orgy live show throughout the Midwest and beyond.
