Flossless Presents: Xiu Xiu at Old Nick's Pub
Flossless Audio and Old Nick's Pub proudly present: Xiu Xiu at Old Nick's Pub.

Touring on their new record "Girl with Basket of Fruit" out 2/8 on Polyvinyl records. The record's lineup features regular co-conspirators Angela Seo, Greg Saunier (Deerhoof) and mastering by Lawrence English.

Xiu Xiu was born on a dance floor, arriving alone at the club and going home alone from the club.

That night the first Xiu Xiu song, Jennifer Lopez, was recorded. Its line, is it tough to watch, Friday after Friday!?, began what Xiu Xiu was going to try to say. The songs would always be about specific events in the personal lives of the band, the people close to them, and about the social and economic politics that effect and deform subjugated life from everywhere in this wobbling, wreck of a solar system.

Over the course of 15 7"s, five EPs, six collaboration albums and ten full lengths Xiu Xiu has never shied away from any topic that is honest and meaningful to them. Their songs are about gender dysphoria, suicide, loneliness, going insane, child soldiers, the tsunami in Indonesia, hideous sex, the Sanrio character Pandapple, abortion politics, incest, cats, queer life, being raped by the police and the individual responsibility of U.S. military personnel for the families they murder. Somehow within all of this, cuteness attempts to find a way to embrace death and horrible emotion.

The music is drawn from British post punk and synth pop, modern Western classical, noise and experimental musics, Asian percussion musics, American folk, torch singers, house, techno and 1950s rock n roll.

Starting in isolation in San Jose, California in 2002, Xiu Xiu has relentlessly toured all over the world since. San Jose is a rotten place to be, so relentless touring was a way to get AWAY!

Xiu Xiu have been called self flagellating, harsh, brutal, shocking and perverse but also genius, brilliant, unique, imaginative and luminous.

The band is Angela Seo and Jamie Stewart.

Local support TBA.
