Daniel Nardicio and Thirsty Girl present Ssion, live in concert with special guests K-Holes, House of Ladosha, Alexis Penney, Mykki Blanco, and Backspace.
Referring to the old John Waters adage asserting that entertainment is inseparable from bad taste, few bands exercise that sentiment to the extent that does Ssion. Ssion (pronounced “shun”) is a 10-years-strong art-punk dance, design, and film collective from Kansas City, Missouri, headed by Cody Critcheloe. The group has gained notoriety not only for its gay-disco-meets-punk-rock musical stylings, but also for its outrageous stage shows and videos, which incorporate a harem of dancers and backup singers, comically cheap homemade props, supersized video projections, over-the-top costumes and makeup, and a visual sense of wonder recalling something between the twisted humor of Pee Wee’s Playhouse and Madonna’s Blond Ambition.
Called a “no-budget Fischerspooner by way of Hee Haw” by the Chicago Reader, Ssion has toured with the likes of Liars, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, CSS, Tilly, and The Wall and Numbers. Some of the band’s high-profile proponents include Ed Droste from Grizzly Bear, Johnny Jewel of Glass Candy, and the aforementioned Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who have tapped Critcheloe’s graphic design talents for their releases. Pitchfork called Critcheloe “likely to pluck used tampons from Karen O’s trashcan and lip-sync into them,” and later referred to him as “the corpse of electroclash … wrapped in dirty baby diapers and stuffed in a Dairy Queen dumpster.”
A departure from the group’s previous ultra-distorted B-52s-meets-Pussy Galore sound, Ssion’s latest release Fool’s Gold (2008) fuses new wave synth-pop, glam, punk, classic rave, and Italo-disco to create a true sleaze-pop masterpiece: 10 unstoppably catchy (and surprisingly witty) tracks alternating between raunchy dancefloor anthems and heartbreakingly sincere confessional pop.
