... an illuminated band out to spread disinformation through pop music
File As: Electro-Rock-Pop
One Liner: Laptop + synths ÷ genius x (talented friends - tyrannical producer) = bicycle, tricycle
There always has to be a focal point, and this all has to originate from somewhere. bicycle, tricycle comes from the mind of bohb, a driven if not directed; known if not loved; remarkable if not respected; omnipresent if not invited fixture of the Chicago music scene. Envisioning himself as Brian Eno but behaving more like Phil Spector, bohb casts himself as composer and director of his pieced together symphony.
bohb established himself in the Chicago music scene as a sound engineer and tour manager for many notable, if not financially successful acts. Now cashing in on those relationships (and resorting to never to be seen Polaroids as blackmail in some cases) he has coerced these musicians into his unfortunately secret society. Grouping these artists into a constantly rotating cast of bandmates for each recording and live performance keeps bicycle, tricycle slippery and slimy, escaping definition, genre, notoriety and fans. To greater and lesser degrees these tactics of pretentiousness have resulted in many a beautiful failure, such as the widely ignored debut record 10111.
Now, with the EP 'The Law of Fives' bicycle, tricycle has unleashed a pure pop platter of hits for your pleasure. Holding no trickery unchecked, unashamed to pander for your attention.
