Flyer of the Week: Matthew Dear, a.k.a. Audion, Cracks Up at Electric Pickle July 24
The artist known as Matthew Dear has got some serious (but not too serious) identity issues. I mean, it's not as if his psychic split is the acid-activated, lock-myself-away-for-30-years-and-die Syd Barrett variety. It's more that, musically, Dear is way too complex to be merely one man. And so, like a lot of other arty weirdoes from the electro/techno/house subset, he chooses to manage the multiple, raging facets of his creative personality by assigning cute little aliases -- such as False, Jabberjaw, and Audion -- to one new self and the next and the next.
