Is it wrong to say that the emo crowd needs a new band? I think that Pyotr in their lighter moments sounds like some Nine Inch Nails "mellow" track. The project ("band" is a stretch on this one) consists of John Greene and Chris Brown, both of whom I know nothing but would be very interested in the drugs they're taking. In terms of instrument duties, both lads do a Ween thing, little bit of this, little bit of that, some kind bud, some recording, some jerking off, some poetry, some parental angst, some more of this and that… and POOF! An album happens. Actually these guys are quite good and on the cutting edge… I received a limited press CD and they know CDs are on their way out; in the liner notes they plead with the listener to rip the music into an Mp3 player. That's foresight. Good luck to them, I think all art is about crossing boundaries. (Mike Loce) - The Noise

Bio

It was a rainy New England May when two old friends, an actor and a shut in, reconvened on a couple of songs recorded the year before as a distraction to a brutal icey Febuary. Together they shaped through sound the character of Pyotr, a comatose cosmonaut hovering through the ether. Embracing the kitsch and cliches the two spent a handful of weeks exploring the dark isolation of a sleeping mind. There in the twinkling nothing above the two sought to channel the sound of spaceships, dreams, fondness and loss. Between the blurred lines of reality, sleep, character and catharsis there is a twisted shell of a man whose pulse is digital and whose blood is borrowed from his creators.

And now, years later, others began to operate the machines that control Pyotr's breath and life.
