The Sudden Passion began some years ago as M. Palermo's (of Electro group Femme Fatality) solo project. The songs share the stories of his tour adventures, love sagas, and tales of ballroom brawls from a tell-it-like-it-is approach. While all the ditties were originally showcased as solo/acoustic, they are now rarely performed the same way twice at a live performance.
Central Standard Time is the first full length Album available from The Sudden Passion. Although the songs on the record were written at various times between 2005-2010. The Songs were recorded in 2009-2010 in St. Louis, MO (where Palermo is originally from) and Los Angeles (where the band now resides).
Musicians on the Album include:
Peter McCoy: Lead Guitars
Alexander Palermo: Bass Guitars / Vocals
Shane Mongeau: Lead Guitars / Keys /Vocals
Carly Jo Simon: Vocals
Bradley M. Palermo: Vocals, Acoustic Guitars, Lead Guitars, Keys, Bass Guitars, Drums
Note from Arist:
While spending the last 6 or 7 years on the road playing Electronic-Party music in Femme Fatality, I was constantly running into song inspiring situations that didn't always fit as "Electro Songs". The Sudden Passion ended up serving as the other, more honest and organic side of my song writing. Because of my nature there's still a heavy dose of sex/drugs/party time on this album, but some of these tracks touch my real life so closely that It's almost difficult to release them to public. I realize this may not be for everyone who has followed my previous projects, but I personally feel it's some of best best and most raw work to date. Thanks for taking a listen and please do let me know what you think: Monanani@gmail.com.
