"Mainland Mayhem - Sugar coated Killers"

Monday night Khaos With Sugar Coated Killers - The Cobalt -Vancouver BC ( Absolute Underground - Vol. 4 - #1 Issue 19 - Dec. 2007 - Jan. 2008 )

- By Emily Kendy

" What better way to start the week off, than a hangover ? " asks Khaos, organiser behind Monday night Khaos ( And bassist for the punk rock outfit, the piss - ups ) at The Cobalt . On this particular Glam rock Monday evening the rain is pouring down stedily while the doorman braves the perenial open door, waiting for the first stragglers of the night to arrive .

Off stage the band members of the night finally step through the doors of the Cobalt like a futuristic drag - queen gang of outlaws . There are three of them besides Lead singer Sevli Android : Poltergiest Candycave, guitar, Lasorface Dreamscape , bass and Acronomican , drums .

Thier live show tonight includes synchronized moves, Sevli's acrobatic floor - rolling this - is - the - last - show of our lives explotations, and songs ranging from " Eye Magic Robot " to " Children of the whores . " Afterwards, as people leave we sit along the long bench in the back , under all of wendy 13's gothic Pollok - style paintings and talk about the birth of B.C 's slap - in - the - face answer to conservatism .

" We're Trying to be like Kiss, " says Sevli , despite snickers from the other bandmates .

Sugar Coated Killers began in Kelowna as a reincarnation from two former bands, Uncle Monstors Space Circus and Halloween Fright Machine .

" We did alot of special things together , " Says Sevli, in his cop -style cap and long black , green streaked wig . " I remember the first show that Lasorface dreamscape played " .

" I was nervous, " admits Laserface, tugging on his red and white striped arm - warmers . " But I had a Subway sandwich on the way to the venue and that helped . "

" When Halloween Fright Machine formed and I wanted us to be different and dress as robotic witches , all in silver face paint ." So we kind of did that when we turned into Sugar Coated Killers . We started off playing in dresses . "

The first time I saw the Sugar Coated Killers was a few years ago at the Media club, In Vancouver . Their unique, high energy act in what looked to be homade costumes was so out of the ordinary they were hard to forget .

One night, me and the guitar player were in an alley and we went into a dumpster because we were very hungry and we found silver material that we taped onto our shoes. " says Lasorface .

" We made moon boots , " Adds Poltergeist .

True to Hedwig and the angry inch's stairway to stardom that started with a gig at a buffet restraunt , the band's first gig was a coffee shop called Jar Jar Beans .

" It was crazy , " Says Sevli . " The high school kids heard about us and like 85 people showed up . They were moshing in the front . "

They also remember their first gig as Sugar Coated Killers .

" I was wearing a black dress , " said Poltergeist .

" I was wearing a black dress too, " says Laserface .

" you were wearing a friend's grad dress " says Sevli .

" Sheila's grad dress "

" We had two stage dancers at that time , too, " says Sevli .
Banana Doll Dish was one of the guys , a slim fella . The other guy was a monkey . They did choreography with, Madonna type stuff and , you know , those moves that I do that I do came from that . "

" You know when you cut butter with a really hot knife ? " says Laserface . " Our first show was like that ... only with more beats . "

" And balloons " says Sevli .

Ironically, the band that understands what the Sugar Coated Killers went through to win over live music fans in the Okanagan is none other than The Black Halos . Billy Hopeless once complained to Sevli about being called homos when they played in Kelowna .

" You put on eyeliner in kelowna and you're going to be called a fag . " says Laserface .

While this explains how The Black Halos relate to this glam rock band but what's still not entirely clear is how the Cobalt realtes to Sugar coated Killers .

" Maybe we're so weird , we're punk, " says Sevli . Of his band he says , " we're like a relationship . We'll get together and fool around and then go back to our own lives .. then fool around and then go on to our own lives . It's a loving relationship, , the passion is there .

"A Sprinkle Of Sugar On Theatre Rock"

- By Shannon Myers

The Sugar Coated Killers are more than a contradictory metaphor; they're the revival of theatre rock, Alice Cooper style.
The Kelowna band has gone through member and name changes, evolving from previous bands Uncle Monstor's Space Circus and Halloween Fright Machine .
But the idea has remained the same.
"We try to make the show very appealing to the eye, " says vocalist Sevli Android.
Influences range from The New York Dolls to David Bowie ( in his Ziggy Stardust phase ). Anything with a Glam rock attitude will make an impression on this band. Complete with stage dancers and drag attire, they're not here to sing anyone to sleep.
" It's like 100 percent theatre mixed in with soundtrack music, " says Android. The songs are written as a soundtrack for the visual performance, so it's really a full meal deal . " We get up there and just really rump - ditty - rump. "
If money were not an object, this band's ultimate gig would be quite an impressive affair. " It would be inside. It would have to be warm. But there would have to be some sort of cages with some fireworks and stuff ! " points out bassist Lasorface Dreamscape.
Band members want to improve on the show in the future by elaborating costumes and special effects.
An Anti- top - 40 - style ban, members would still welcome commercial success.
" I'd be happy, " says an unashamed Android. " It's be good because we'd be in the middle of all of thsi stuff that sucks. " Success would give the band a lot more freedom in terms of direction. "
" Whewn i'm writing the songs and stuff I always want to have a commercial sounding chorus anywa, built around a really weird sounding riff and bridge. You want a catchy chorus. "
The future looks bright for these Sugar coated killers, wityh talks under way about touring with some bigger name bands.
" We can't say any names cause we don't want to jinx it, " said Android.
Lasorface puts it all into perspective. " I think it's pretty exciting that I don't know where I'm going to be in thee months, " he said.

Those in attendence are welcome to join the oddball fashion parade by coming dressed in different forms of Christmas - especially, Android suggests, flirty elves ( if you're a girl ) and Santa - boys ( if you're not ) .
I like wearing red and green together, at this time of year and and all year because it reminds me of Christmas and candy sauce. " Android revealed of his own style preferences.
