Biography

brian botkiller is and electronic musician, promoter, producer and performer from Albuquerque, NM. Born and raised in the arts and music scene, brian's sound is like nothing you'd expect from most electronic musicians. A multi-multi-instrumentalist playing and programming drums, keyboards, synths, bass and vocals, brian is also the drummer for the nationally-known Industrial act Diverje and Punktronica act Vertigo Venus and many other projects. brian is a studio musician with over ten years of experience and a working musician in the New Mexico music scene.

brian's sound is like that of electronic dance legends Underworld tossed in a blender with Miles Davis, KMFDM and the punk rock sensibility of the Talking Heads. Top off with a bit of live art-jam visual projections and propaganda, and you have a concoction to get a room moving. Will it blend? Oh yes, it will.

Wait, did he say art jam? Yes, he did. Working with Video Jockey and visual propagandist, creator and image manipulator Mediapathic, brian botkiller's live show consists of an audiovisual explosion on your eyes and ears. Your feet and body will follow, and you'll be moving.

brian is one of the hardest working men in electro. Lots of electronic "bands" play a few shows a year; brian plays upwards of 70 a year. Raves, Festivals, Bars, you name it, brian will rock it. This isn't another DJ on two decks - this is LIVE electronic music. Live keyboards, live re-looping, live vocals. This is the future of music altogether.

As a promoter in the live electronic music scene of New Mexico and the Southwest, brian has seen over ten years in the scene and the music that comes with it, and isn't stopping anytime soon. He's been voted best in New Mexico at what he does, and has worked with some of the biggest names in underground electronic music, such as En Esch (Slick Idiot, ex-KMFDM frontman). This is Intelligent Dance Music for the true faithful; more real than anything on the radio, and more fun than any average band. Hear the future, now.

Lyrics

Suddenly the Next Day

Written By: brian botkiller

Verse 1
shot back
another day
slow thought
fades away
time out
to think again
no change
for who and when
day in
day out
can't stop to think about
where to go
who to see
where I am
who to be

verse 2

I've got
one million thoughts
I've seen
one million things
I've been
waiting on the edge
I'll know
when it's time to go

Chorus
suddenly the next day
you'll find it all went wrong
in all the right ways
everything feels the same
suddenly the next day
you'll find a way to accept the change
everything feels the same
everyday
suddenly the next day
you'll find a way to escape the change
nothing will feel the same
everyday
everyday

verse 3

backtrack
everyday
try to set
the record straight
time out
to think again
too many changes
to who and when
fade in
fade out
should of stopped
to think about
where to go
who to see
who I am
who to be

Verse 4

I saw
one million days
I felt
one million ways
I've been
waiting on the edge
I'll know
when it's time to go

Chorus 2

suddenly the next day
you'll find it all went wrong
in all the right ways
everything feels the same
suddenly the next day
you'll find a way to accept the change
everything feels the same
everyday
suddenly the next day
you'll find a way to escape the change
nothing will feel the same
everyday

suddenly the next day
suddenly the next day

In so many ways

Thru speech
Thru sound

communicate
Everyday

oscillation

Welcome to Post War USA feat. EN ESCH

Written By: brian botkiller

Verse 1

----------------

bombs drop

planes soar

just another day of war

no sun

no sky

just another

day to die

black ops

crooked cops

the IRS has got you locked

paying for

this mess you see

someday wishing

to be free

Chorus

-------------------

welcome to post war USA

you've not no healthcare

but that's ok

we'll save you a place

at the end of the line

don't worry we'll get to you

in due time

welcome to post war USA

the fighting will go on no matter what you say

the pain will continue 'til morale improves

because now we control your right to choose

Verse 2

------------------------------------

prison state

metal gates

corporations decide your fate

dare to question

what they say

earn a stay at Gitmo Bay

see the cameras

all around

you're being watched even in your house

just be careful

don't make a sound

the walls have ears and you can be found

Chorus

--------------------

welcome to post war USA

you've got no healthcare but that's ok

we'll save you a place at the end of the line

don't worry we'll get to you

in due time

welcome to post war USA

the fighting will go on no matter what you say

the pain will continue until moral improves

because now we control your right to choose

(Break with Bush vocals)

welcome to post war USA

you've got no healthcare but that's ok

we'll save you a place at the end of the line

don't worry we'll get to you

in due time

welcome to post war USA

welcome to post war USA

welcome to post war USA

welcome to post war USA
