A BIT ON THE TOUR:
“For the group’s 20th Anniversary tours and celebrations, the primary theme and focus will be on creating the ultimate “anti-band.” With the rise of sharing music online, the unfiltered online contact between musician and fan, the tools and encouragement to self-produce — not to mention the easy online access to nearly the entire history of recorded music — artists feel an ever-greater degree of self-importance while the music itself descends into blandness. More people have the ability to express themselves through music, but only a shrinking few have the originality and humility to create great music. Cock E.S.P.’s 20th Anniversary presents performances which strip away all the pretense of trolling for approval, the lack of filters which nourish outstanding art through creative tension and the goal of achievement via acknowledgement. The group will be presenting raw, open improvised performances which are equally destined to be humiliating trainwrecks as they are to be powerful and unique artistic statements — clumsy and broken to counter the prevalent slickness and arrogance of contemporary “bands.”"
