The Apocalypso Tantric Noise Choir [formerly Apocalypso Tantric Boys Choir of Memphis] are David and Eric Hurlin and James Moore. Household names in the Kalona area prior to the housing crash, the band has since retreated to a world of their own making closer to Saturn than Mars or Venus. The band has a penchant for quixotic jamscapes, killer keys, and elastic beats that transcend the framework from whence they rise. Think Thelonius, Elvin and Lenny Bruce at the corner of Snowden and Kerouac. "They're like the JBs on the bottom with Jimi Hendrix on top," said one, admittedly liquor-infused, industry person. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5kPkqzDto0
The Apocalypso Tantric Noise Choir celebrate Saturn's strong influence in these times, and the musical influence and poetry of Sun Ra. Adam Abraham, son of Saturn Records co-founder, Alton Abraham, read from the book Sun Ra: Collected Works Vol. 1 -- Immeasurable Equation (2005 Phaelos Books). Performed at The Beauty Shop, Fairfield, IA (5/14/2011).
