“The key is movement, except of course when it isn’t. It’s kind of hard to explain, but that seems to be the idea behind the upcoming self-titled debut LP from Closet Disco Queen. (…) Closet Disco Queen are waving party rock in your face.”
“It’s pretty different from the guys’ previous bands – this material is much more in the vein of classic power-chord 70’s rock (particularly of the German variety) and prog, but also has a driving punk edge.”
Jona Nido (Coilguns) and Luc Hess (Coilguns, Red Kunz) are Closet Disco Queen, and CDQ are about to drop their debut full-length album next month – “”70’s instrumental psycheledic kraut rock’n’roll progressive beats for your ass to shake and your shoes to burn.” In the meantime New Noise Magazine has unveiled a brand new track and video, entitled “The Shag Wag”, off of their self-titled debut album.
Again? Jona Nido and Luc Hess (Coilguns, KUNZ, The Ocean, The Fawn, Schwarz, etc.) have a new hot friend. She came out of her auntie’s closet and will ruin your teenage disco. The loudest cheerleader you’ve ever seen – barely dressed and roughly combed, queue jumping everyone at the entrance of the club. Here she comes, out of nowhere and without warning, carried around by two of the sexiest bodyguards – like she always belonged. Fact is that girl can dance. She dares. She rocks. Odd and weird, charming enough to turn any of her nights into a freak show. We all knew these two guys were party animals, but this band will bring them to a whole new level of frenzy. That CLOSET DISCO QUEEN delivers 70’s instrumental psycheledic kraut rock’n’roll progressive beats for your ass to shake and your shoes to burn. Huuuh, you nasty girl.
Guitar players are sissies and Jona Nido is a dancing queen. A fairly secret one though, who hides his riffs like we all do with W’s in our granny scrabble bag. “Nah, this can’t be a serious tune. Nah, I have a hyperactive record label to run almost by myself. Nah, I already have three awesome bands to tour with. Nah, I would really need to be too drunk to play it live. Nah. Pink leggings would shrink my lovely booty ass.” Any reason was good to keep all of this six strings epicness in its closet. But then came Luc Hess, the undestructible rock beats and vodka shots machine, and he said : dude, we need a trick to party more. This trick, don’t call it a band, becameCLOSET DISCO QUEEN and by the way all of their sounds are excellent, truely experimental and one-of-a-kind classics. Also, if proof was needed, Jona Nido is the freakiest guitar player in town
The band will also embark on a European tour from June 19th to July 6th. Full list of shows to be announced soon.
