From the gates of cashmere comes Blackmarket Art.
Formaly known as Gettin' Lucky In Kentucky and Darian Woods and The Lumberjacks, the band has since reformed to become Blackmarket Art. Pioneers in the genre of funk/cunt/yazz/wank rock n roll, Blackmarket Art has been described as whimsical.
After 3 years spent with a deep but purely friend/family/whanau fanbase, Blackmarket Art actually managed to create an enjoyable live set. To quote Ben from The Beige Curtains, "You guys were kind of groovy."
After this revelation they started to gain momentum and since then their long train running has gotten substantially longer.
Blackmarket Art is not only a music thang either, they are also 3 quarters electric eye candy. I swear, that they are cool.
Blackmarket Art can easily be analogised by Willy Shakespeare's Romeo+Juliet:
Tim is Romeo, romantic and full of lust. His moonlight serenades often leave a pile of feminine underwear on the stage and a pile of broken hearts in the crowd.
Darian is Tybalt, a mischievious king of cat's who goes out looking for trouble on a regular basis.he always takes his neurofen in the form of capulets, a freaky hybrid of the capsule and tablet, and he could easily be played by John Leguizamo.
Matt is Macbeth, not really in the same book as everyone else. Matt would rather kill everyone who gets in his way then admit defeat. He has an inquenchable lust for power and new cymbols which is somewhat symbolic. He is also reasonably historically accurate and his partners seem to have trouble washing their hands.
Joe is Mercutio. If lost on an island he would probably have a kid and a dog. He is often called gay which makes him start fights with others, fights which lead to his death. He has long been a fan of double entendres and he thinks Mercutio is the coolest character in Romeo+Juliet and because he is writing this filth it is his perogotive to give himself a character he likes.
So yeah Blackmarket Art is jive.
