October is looking like an excellent gig month:
Wednesday, October 1st, at Church is CHROME's Helios Creed….this is THE GUY that made up the sound that many bands in the 80's and 90's picked up: here's a bit of a history lesson: "Helios Creed is the legendary guitarist of San Francisco's proto-industrial acid-punk band Chrome. His unusual musical stylings have influenced bands such as Butthole Surfers, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, KMFDM and Prong. Helios Creed joined San Francisco's Chrome in 1977 to record their second album Alien Soundtracks. Helios' mastery of sustained, distorted guitar effects and deep, crooning vocals noticeably changed Chrome's direction and made them the science fiction inspired, avant-garde acid-punk that Chrome is best known for." Here's his website and you should check him out!!! Helios Creed CHROME
