Melted Bodies’ Schizophrenic Sonics Embodied The DIY Ethos At A Sh!tshow Party Review + Photos: Melted Bodies @ The Factory DTLA for a Sh!tshow Party 7/28/18
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“The final act on the roster was a band called Melted Bodies. I hadn’t heard of them before, but when I asked a photographer buddy of mine what they were like, his response was that they were like a mix of Dead Kennedys and Devo. Needless to say, my imagination kinda ran amuck with that, but as soon as they started playing I wanted to add Mr. Bungle to mix. Melted Bodies free form rock was perhaps a little more on the darker side compared to Mr. Bungle, but it was just as eclectic and eccentric as Mike Patton’s experimental rock outfit.
Like a whirlwind, Melted Bodies’- who are Ben (keys), Houda (bass), Andy (guitar and lead vocals) and Scott (drums)- schizophrenic sonics swept through packed room giving the attendees one last mosh before evening came to a close. Their funky, weird music packed a serious punch and was performed with a confident gusto that made it all that more enjoyable.
Melted Bodies’ music seemed to encapsulate the DIY ethos of the evening. You’d be hard pressed to hear their music on traditional radio formats, but with the support of the community around them who recognize that theirs is a music that is non-traditionally brilliant, they’ll be able to continue making the eclectic music that they so clearly love.”
