Doesn't get much better than electro-punk from the Czech Republic! The foursome known as Sunshine are finally coming back to shake your ass after a 2-year absence from touring the US (you may remember them from the many shows they played with At The Drive In in 2000). Granted, they will only be playing a week's worth of shows in Southern California before heading to NY for CMJ, but I suggest you go see them if you are lucky enough to live in one of these cities.
Their last record, Necromance, was only released on the Czech label Day After because the boys had a very un-sunshiney experience with a label they had previously dealt with and therefore decided that for the time being they would stay with what felt comfortable. Unfortunately, this left us sorry sods that don't have a good record store that stocks imports from the Czech Republic (does a store like this exist?) Sunshine-less. Don't fear, the boys have had plenty of label interest and after this visit to the US, we're sure to be able to get their records at every record store very soon.
Check out the band's website if you aren't lucky enough to attend any of the shows below and be sure to check out "Narcoleptic Feedback" on the forthcoming Cornerstone Player .037.
