BandRockAlternative

An amazing, mind-altering, fun-filled, funky, junky, full-tilt, monster folk, power-rock trio known as yokoDeathray. An erotic explosion/ implosion of sound, fury and other cool things drenched in whisky.

Biography

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…..oh shit! I’m sorry, that’s from that movie Spaceballs! My bad, let’s start over. Some time ago in a war-torn village called Hollywood, a miracle occurred, a real rock ‘n roll band was born. yokoDeathray starring Davoid on guitar and vocals, Vuoto on bass and whatever else, and Raymod on drum set and ashtray. I realize the Pope may dispute my use of the word miracle, however given the sorry state of the current rock scene, it’s like totally justified. You have a better chance of seeing a unicorn in L.A. much less a good rock band. That’s the bad news. The good news is that yokoDeathray exists along with an amazing second album entitled Planet Punk Bitch. Produced in part by former Porno For Pyros guitar man Peter DiStefano and Keith Sterling formerly of Canada. I swear to God this album rules! It’s a punky, wasted, noise-filled onslaught wrapped in sparkling pink sugar. No dog, you don’t understand, it’s also got actual songs on it! Remember those? Probably not, but you will once you hear it. You’ll be laughing, crying and touching yourself before it’s over. And don’t get me started on the live show! On second thought, get me started. Every show is a real life rock concert. Remember those? Probably not, but you will. It’s a religious experience on a good night and a different kind of religious experience on a bad night. Either way it’s loud, sexy, dangerous, and a shit-load of fun. What more do you want? Fuck it! Surrender! Your futile search for the one true soul-licking rock ‘n roll explosion has ended! yokoDeathray lives so that you may die smiling and full. Thank you You’re welcome Sincerely, yokoDeathray

Lyrics

52 Erections

Written By: yokoDeathray

I'm insane 'cause I wanna be
and I can't wait 'til I'm 23
I've had 52 Erections just for you

throwin' down with the Samurais
come around when you say goodbye
can you smile like your smiling just for me?

I can't explain it
I'm feeling five eleven
I don't expect you to agree

take back my radio
I don't need it anymore
the music's in my mind again
and everything is fine again

dance around on a puppy's grave
I'll pretend that my soul is saved
I've got everything to live for
just like you do too

blending in with the universe
I don't care if I'm getting worse
I'll just feed on your obsessive point of view
like you

I can't explain it
I think I might be Satan
or Jesus I can't decide

take back my radio
I don't need it anymore
the music's in my mind again
and everything is fine again

I don't care if you hate me
'cause it only educates me
it's OK if you love me
'cause I know that you're above me

Honey Bunny

Written By: yokoDeathray

blow the speakers
up the mains
I’m so ready
to be deranged
so pick a gender
and eat your pill
if they can’t hear you
they never will
never

faster faster baby
don’t you wanna feel the G’s?
don’t you though?

I’m the ruler
I’m the queen
your boyfriend’s cooler
that’s what we mean
so fuck las vegas
and all the holes
we got ten people
that never show
never

faster faster baby
don’t you wanna feel the G’s?
don’t you though?

honey bunny
why’d you shoot me in the face?

faster faster baby
don’t you wanna feel the G’s?
don’t you though?

don’t you though?

Better Places

Written By: yokoDeathray

are you gonna tell me it's alright?
are you gonna make me stay the night?
can you tempt me with a look inside my soul again?
oh can we pretend that I was you?

well I sold my soul and I lost my place
and I wept until I cried
and I drew the shades and I flew away
to better places now

are you gonna fill the empty space?
are you gonna cover up your face?
can you hold me 'til the pain becomes a memory?
oh can we pretend that I was you?

well I sold my soul and I lost my place
and I wept until I cried
and I drew the shades and I flew away
to better places now

Discography

We have 2 full length LPs.
"Dumping And Reloading The Internal Memory" and
our brand new 2005 record "Planet Punk Bitch".
We also have a variety of EPs featuring live tracks and home recordings.

Set List

We don't have a typical set list, actually, we've never written one. We decide what we're going to start with when we get to the club and then call out songs from there depending on the response of our crazed fans. We have about 30 originals to choose from and have a few covers ready to go if needed.
We keep it loose and fun and interactive and rockin'.
