Feeling a bit camera shy


A mysterious apartment fire, cause still unknown.

A young man obsessed with music says good bye to his keyboards, demos and a record collection dating back to adolescence. Instead of a curse, he takes this as a liberating omen. Coming from the industrial/Goth nexus of synth based rock, the new indie initiate abandons the past and commits to his new instrument, a semi-hollowbody electric guitar.

He immerses himself in walls of sound, white noise drone, and psychedelic fuzz swirls. Late at night, he builds a laboratory at home. Road trips to backass music shops in far off places like Tanis, New Hampshire, Felton, PA and Phillipsburg, NJ following leads to rare effects pedals, no name analog echo chambers from the 60's, lo fi Radio Shack reverb with RCA plugs. He combines the old with the new, maxing credit cards on digital processors, then spends night and day surfing the possibility of sound.

Finally, he emerges from his pirate lab with a self released debut album, "Just In Time For Nothing" (another way of saying "Too Late"). A unique concept recording honoring shoegazers and feedback merchants like The Jesus and Mary Chain, Slowdive and Sonic Youth, a tribute to sonic astronauts everywhere.

JITFN, not the final creation imagined by our hero, guitar scientist HADRIAN MORDECAI, simply an introduction by way of the past to the futuristic aural experiment incubating within his mind. THE AQUARIAN said, "Superficial bitches beware, this boy is a deadly sharp cookie for real, and if this be ‘shoegazer’ fodder, then let that electro-energy surround me baby." AMPLIFIER warned, "Mordecai paints sound collages with the artsy nocturnal aura most closely associated with Pink Floyd, My Bloody Valentine and Spiritualized...The Spectacle Experiment display the ability to wreak sonic pandemonium."

THE SPECTACLE EXPERIMENT, now a full band featuring JITFN hyperactive drummer Scott Wilson and his lovely wife Mary Ann on bass making love to the rhythm, framing Hadrian's dreamy soundscapes with thump and fury. They are playing regularly in the NYC area and preparing the next installment of the scientist's sonic prophecy. Coming to a galaxy near you.
