Jimmy Edgar at EVE February 20
The key to making a sexy album about sex? Stop doing it. Celibacy was Jimmy Edgar's formula for success when creating XXX, his latest full-length release on !K7. It includes raunchy tracks such as "Hot Raw Sex" and "Vibration."
Edgar's formative years in Detroit, the electronic heart of America, gave him a place to perform. Prolific and talented, he began messing around with music-making in elementary school, learning to play piano at a Baptist church and DJing raves when he was 15 years old. Adding to a long list of what can't he do, this musician is also an accomplished fashion and fine art photographer.
No stranger to the Magic City, Edgar got his start on Miami labels Merck and Isophlux Records. He will be bringing his R&B-and-funk influenced sound back to town for LSD/DSL, presented by Schematic Records and Otto von Schirach's Triangle Earth Records with Salim Rafiq. These guys last brought Edgar down in 2004 for WMC's Swamp Thing to play alongside Matthew Dear, Soft Pink Truth (Drew Daniel of Matmos), and Secret Frequency Crew's Adrian Michna.
And just so you know what you're in for, the night takes its name, sound, and direction from Coil's Love's Secret Domain (LSD) and Egyptian Lover's Dick Sucking Lips (DSL).
