Strange Things Done in the Midnight Sun

Strange Things Done In The Midnight Sun is an unsigned, central-New Jersey based 4 piece who have as many musical influences as there are syllables in their name ranging from Joy Division to The Cramps to Klaus Nomi. Comprised of members of OS101, Don Juan Destroyer, and Casino Evil, they've been causing a ruckus within the New York City, NJ circuit for 6 plus years. But similar to the dilemma of Sysiphus, every time they're just about to reach the the peak, the weight of their own design causes them to topple back down to square one. A mini-LP entitled 'Done Waiting For The Day' was self-released in the summer of 2007 of which a few tracks to this day receive modest airplay on local college stations, most notably "Petrol", "Carousel" and "Dear Ol' Dad".

This past spring saw the release of 'The Killing Wall', a darker and more aggressive effort than the preceding mini-lp but despite the slight change in aural direction their goal still remains the same....only tenfold! That being more musical and sexual ambiguity, more audience-wide confusion, more faux-opera and, of course, more piñatas!
