Dealing in the dark art of danger pop is a tricky business, and one that pays in monthly installments of wadded up one dollar bills. There's a grey area somewhere between accessibility and feedback, between melody and a mess. Bodisartha lives there, cuddling for warmth and ignoring the mainstream.

Biography

Dealing in the dark art of danger pop is a tricky business, and one that pays in monthly installments of wadded up one dollar bills. There's a grey area somewhere between accessibility and feedback, between melody and a mess. Bodisartha lives in that place. They cuddle up together for warmth there, waiting for the ice age of corporate rock, noise metal, and kiddie pop to pass, as george harrison has promised it will.

Bodisartha passes the time by playing feedback drenched melodic guitar rock in their cave: located in the central section of the united states, conveniently out of the reach of hipster trend makers.

With a new album that tells the hopeful story of a failed revolution, Bodisartha will be playing all the overpopulated areas of the united states during their spring and fall tours of 2008, keeping their hipster magnet ray guns set to sparkle (the setting between existential-over-explanation and jackson-pollack-drippings).

Since, as we are told by men with wild hairdos, nothing is created or detroyed, merely transfigured, it goes without saying that the illusion of creation/destruction took place when panda melon was formed. Bodisartha has eaten up members of the girl is a ghost, grasscanon, and pixel panda.

it's hard to say if the members of Bodisartha even care about "being successful" in the music industry anymore. the joke's on them. it's true. in a fast food culture hole that suggests anyone can be a rock star and everyone is special, josh thomas and justin piatt have woken up, six years and two bands deep, into a world where you can no longer sell music. music is free now, haven't you heard?

'leave the poor people alone' is fully recorded and mostly mixed. bodisartha has traded in the power chords and screaming for weird jazz chords and moaning. a concept evolved around the songs. the album seems to be based around a revolutionary character that thinks it's possible for one person to change everything. the songs are equal parts philosophy and narrative: the philosophy of this character and the reaction he gets from the general public, more specifically, the authoritarian government of the united states. reactions include: stalking, wiretapping, crucifixion, you know... the classics.
