Title: Gang Gang Dance
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
⿿Gang Gang Dance are a group composed of well-known entities (in and around NYC in particular) but have left a sporadic, almost shadowy, impression upon people nonetheless.  Various members play/have played in various other bands.  Theyll surface to play a clutch of shows, most all well-attended, only to disappear again (as regards to any kind of reliable congregation).  Oh, and theres also been no record to speak of, save a 100-copy CD, more or less fleetingly manifested for an art event with probably somewhere that amount of attendees. Anyways, now we have a document, albeit LP only, and thankfully definitely a good one. The opening female vocal ululations soon enough refract electronically, and the summoned whalesong dimension spires into an urgent metempsychotic groove.  Coming as they do from different angles, its safe to assume there is humanity to the postproduction approach on here.  Indeed the first side in its totality achieves a narrative facility which, when sized up against the nature of its parts, could remind one of a more quietly-alloyed Chrome. It does not end there, in fact there is something of a sense of unfinished business, and the second side strikes off with a snapping dream of desert suspense.  Machinic industry rises up here too though, marking yet another salient entre into the crafted spuriousness GGD seek to espouse.  An open drone fills for much of the half, accumulating a lyric denouement that possesses overtures toward melody and texture but less toward propulsive mien.    Again, and as always with this outfit, not so fast, especially in assuming the accumulation will not build anew, and fairly dramatically, before the end. And it is when it in fact does that sadly deceased member Nathan Maddox joins the fray most obviously, his vox working up the Can-like lather along with the suddenly more brash (especially after the subdued interlude) compatriots, everything spiking up to the sendoff digitized muezzin wail.⿝ - Dan Hougland; Other Music. Features Tim DeWit (ex-Cranium, Ssab Songs, Angelblood, White Magic, Neil Michael Hagerty, Cass McCombs), Brain DeGraw (ex-Cranium, Ssab Songs, Angelblood), Liz Bougatsos (Actress, Angelblood), Josh Diamond (Ssab Songs), and Nathan Maddox. Housed in a full color gatefold jacket. Repressed!!

Title: Kamakura
Format: LP
Label: Latitudes
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Limited edition of 1000! Gang Gang Dance define the ultimate world music for the now, & possibly for an unknown tomorrow. Utilizing avant garde sensibilities & cut-and-paste assemblies, they approach music as pure sound. Lizzie Bougatsos vocals are often non-verbal communications -- words as sound rather than any immediate apparent linear meaning or message. As interest grows in the indigenous music of many cultures of the Far and Middle East, especially in hybridized fusions of the familiar Western forms with local historical folk forms, so Gang Gang Dance are the logical product of an outward looking NYC in the global age: Middle Eastern percussion & keyboard stabs collide with Far Eastern instrumentation, & elements of Western pop & dance." -Latitudes

Title: Gods Money
Format: CD
Label: Social Registry
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"Gang Gang Dances second full length release entitled Gods Money . Recorded over the course of a year at Junkyard Audio Salvage the band utilized whatever means were available to them: drums of all shapes, sizes and circuits, various keyboards and synthesizers, midi-triggering guitar scenarios, vocals reconfigured via guitar effect pedal and even the occasional aluminum chair. Blending hypnotic rhythms into a highly structured compositional style or soaring in the lofty heights of practiced improvisation, this recording follows in the footsteps of their other output marking new ground for the band." - Social Registry. Highly recommended!

Title: Hillulah
Format: CD
Label: Social Registry
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"Gang Gang Dance is a musical vehicle without brakes, constantly innovating and dropping material out the rear. Hillelah documents a period in which Gang Gang moved from city streets to multilane highways and down back roads. These four tracks are culled from live sets and practice sessions to give you just a taste of what was happening during this period between GGD recording sessions. Plus this enhanced CD puts one into their world with two very diverse performances." -Social Registry.

Title: Rawwar
Format: CD
Label: Social Registry
Country: US
Price: $10.50
"Rawwar is the first glimpse of exactly what the band have been up to over this prolific year. Clocking in at just over twenty minutes and sprawled across three tracks, the release plays like a Gang Gang Dance sampler of sorts; a taster for what is to come. Rawwar opens with Nicoman: a live favorite from the last few years which has been refined in the studio. Bombastic and dance-oriented, it blends the bands affection for musical styles, propelling the listener through four minutes of audible tribal chaos, while at the same time demonstrating GGDs talent for pop melody." - Social Registry.

Title: Retina Riddim
Format: CD/DVD
Label: Social Registry
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"In advance of Gang Gang Dances upcoming studio full-length, The Social Registry are proud to present the bands first-ever DVD release, Retina Riddim. This film was made by Gang Gang Dance member, and visual artist, Brian DeGraw. Retina Riddim is by no means a tour film, documentary, live video, or anything as remotely stringent. Included on the DVD is a fan film, GGDbyOP, shot and edited on the road by Oliver Payne, a friend of the bands. As an added bonus Retina Riddim also contains an audio CD cut together by DeGraw specifically for this release, and a fold-out poster designed by Mr. DeGraw." -Social Registry.

Title: Revival Of The Shittest
Format: CDR
Label: Social Registry
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Released in an edition of 100 CDRs this material was carefully edited and mastered by Sean Maffucci in the Junkyard and comes packaged like a DIY 7" which are hand numbered with color laser printed artwork akin to a DIY 7" release.This is the debut release by NYCs Gang Gang Dance; a limited edition CDR which was made to sell at the 2003 Social Registry CMJ Showcase. This material was culled from a canvas bag full of CDs and cassettes which were recorded live, in the studio or on a boombox in the GGD rehearsal space. Gang Gang Dance are a four piece out of NYC comprised of veterain musicians Brian Degraw (Saab Song/cranium/angel blood), Liz Bourgotumus (actress/angel blood), Tim Dewitt (Saab Songs/Cranium/White Magic/Cass McCombs) and Josh Diamond (Jackie-O Motherfucker) which arose out of the ashes of the infamous NYC band Cranium. Taking the building blocks of dance, rock and experimental music this foursome whip up as strange and beautiful a music as weve ever heard bringing to mind Throbbing Grissle or Amon Duul." - Social Registry. LP (which has been in the works for over 2 years now) sometime this year on Fusetron.
