Long story short, I love me some Drums of Death. The Glasgowian underlord's moniker is the alter-ego of Colin Bailey, who emerged from London's club scene in early 2008 and after Joe Goddard from Hot Chip and Alex Waldron heard a tape of his music, signed him to their record label and party crew: Greco-Roman. Stories quickly began to emerge in the press that he was cursed by some voodoo magic and had his heart cut out and replaced with a broken drum machine. That. Is. Awesome.
This Friday, at Public Assembly for part of the FIXED show series, DoD will take the stage for a live performance. Now, last time I caught the facepainted monster, he was opening for Peaches at Music Hall of Williamsburg, and he put on a terrorizingly terrific set. More of the same will surely be in effect this weekend, as he's gearing up to drop an album, and the new songs we've already heard, well, WHEW, they's a beast's dream.
