COMMENT ON THIS STORY


A SINGER dressed in an oversized body costume sharing vocals with a drunk member of SIGUE SIGUE SPUTNIK, while bikini-clad dancing girls make out with each other behind them.
It can only mean one thing.

The return of ANTIPRODUCT - the most fun band in the world of hard rock.

Never ones to do the obvious, the group chose trendy Chelsea restaurant Deep to throw a birthday party to celebrate it being 40 years since their favourite song, THE BEACH BOYS' Good Vibrations, topped the charts.

There was no support act - just a man who jumped barefoot on broken glass and stapled things to himself and his semi-naked female assistant.

Then AntiProduct came out and played tracks from their two recent albums and previewed some from their upcoming third.

The early highlights were Bungee Jumpin People Die, Best Day and a five second slaughter of Stairway To Heaven.

Then came the moment everyone was waiting for, as they debuted their own unique take on Good Vibrations - a version that's hardcore glam-metal one minute and pure pop the next.

But more than the music, AntiProduct are about the performance.

It's almost impossible to take your eyes off frontman ALEX KANE, who loves his group so much he has even dyed his hair in the colour of their logo.

He leaps around the stage and into the crowd, takes the mickey out of his bandmates and gets everyone batting around big beach balls.

Most ingeniously he's found a sex toy company also called Good Vibrations to sponsor the band - meaning there were free 'gifts' for every punter.

Alex told us: "I started life wanting to be a rock 'n' roll star, but I've ended up as a vibrator salesman."

And that's what makes AntiProduct so wonderfully different.

AntiProduct play London's Borderline on November 24. For more info go to www.antiproduct.com. - The Sun

Bio

AntiProduct is a rock 'n' roll band consisting of five people (three boys, two girls), born in four different countries on three different continents, that cannot boast of sounding, being or looking like any other band...ever! Their independently released second album, "MADE IN USA", has garnered AntiProduct rave reviews from mags as diverse as Q, Spin, Rolling Stone, Big Cheese, and heavy metal heavyweight Kerrang!.
Combining elements of punk, arena rock, metal, and hyperbolic radio friendly pop played with a nihilistic contempt for everything safe and average, AntiProduct is fast becoming one of the most talked about bands in the rock 'n' roll underground worldwide.
The near legendary AntiProduct live experience ("Britain’s Best Live Band," raves the Daily Mirror) has seen them tour the UK, Japan, USA, and most of Europe several times with Ozzfest, Twisted Sister, The Muderdolls, The Wildhearts, The Damned and Mindless Self Indulgence as well as literally hundreds of headline stints all their own. AP is regularly called on by Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Marky Ramone to perform chaos inciting sets of AntiProduct versions of Ramones classics with Marky himself playing drums. There’s even talk of a Marky Ramone/AntiProduct LP in the works.
Kerrang! Award-nominated AntiProduct performed for metal fans all over Europe and the UK with Ozzfest (starting a riot in Italy on live TV as well as the now infamous "Queen Mother" AP introduction to the UK Ozzfest), receiving utter loathing or unadulterated adoration. "The first hints in the name... AntiProduct," says their frontman, known as A. Product from beneath his giant trademark painted on smile.
Having recently finished their third album with Grammy winning, Platinum producer Sylvia Massy (Johnny Cash, Foo Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins, System of a Down and Tool, etc), AntiProduct look forward to spreading their warped sense of fun and anti-disestablishmentarianism (“The most fun band in the world of hard Rock,” The Sun) further into the psyche of the rock 'n' roll world.
Their relentless DIY touring schedule (averaging over 150 shows a year) has built the band a devoted and rabid worldwide following whose dedication is renowned to rival the band's itself.
Explaining their reputation for aberrant public behaviour and shameless manipulation of all things media as "ridiculing the same system you exploit," AntiProduct has blocked London rush hour traffic by getting naked on top of a van while driving through the streets; been bathed in urine while wearing raw, festering meat as part of a fake American TV game show for a Kerrang! Halloween feature (it was the biggest selling issue in Kerrang!’s history); been sick on England's most hated celebrity radio DJ/mogul, Chris Evans; at a photo shoot for fashion trendsetter The Face, eaten live worms to the delight and disgust of all the fashionistas. The Guinness Book of World Records considers their single, “The Better Than This Maxi-Single Box Set”, the longest single in history, clocking in at 55 minutes and featuring 16 tracks! As they infiltrate the mainstream through their doctrine of "Cheesecore", they promise even bigger insults to all things status quo.
The band's more instantly accessible songs (" some of the best choruses ever written,” Front Magazine) have found their way into the mainstream receiving placements with everyone from Dunkin Donuts, ABC/Disney, NBC, Miramax among others.
In addition to radio play on such luminous UK based stations as London’s largest alternative station, Xfm, and stalwart BBC Radio 1, AntiProduct currently is being played by none other than legendary KROQ tastemaker Rodney Bingenheimer, along with LA’s Indie 103.1, uber-cool, Camp Freddy Radio joining the fray of AP early US supporters as well!

Summing up the AntiProduct philosophy, the singer explains “If this is the end, I intend to party with my people. Rome wasn't burnt in a day!"
