VIRUS 356 CD 


PILOT SCOTT TRACY is a brainchild of Scott and Tracy Cox-Stanton, formerly of THE CAUSEY WAY--a literal flight of fantasy based on the good old days of air travel when stewardesses coddled you with free beverages and fluffed pillows. Their music, described by one critic as "aggressively homo," is sometimes raw, sometimes pretty, sometimes serious, sometimes silly, a delicious collision of early punk and new wave. The spark of inspiration was set off when Mark Mothersbaugh gave Scott and Tracy a personal tour of the DEVO HQ, schooling them on vintage keyboards, equipment and sounds. As with their last AT outing Any City (Virus 328), Scott dishes out the jagged guitar attacks with his frantic, paranoid vocals while Tracy counteracts with her serene, dreamy voice on the slow numbers, including a sublime cover of the SMITHS' "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out." For We Cut Loose, the lineup has been fortified by four additional members whose resumes include MAN...OR ASTROMAN, MOONEY SUZUKI, etc. Strip away the air travel theme, and you have a solid eff ort that references a slew of original New Wave greats like DEVO, THE B-52S, etc. If you missed the '80s the first time around, then think LADYTRON, STEREO TOTAL or THE POLYSICS. While real-life airlines stagnate and fizzle away into bankruptcy, PST Airlines' stock continues to rise as the general public catches onto the New Wave-Punk hybrid these kids pioneered back in their CAUSEY days. It's time to cash in your frequent flyer miles, baby!!  "PILOT SCOTT TRACY assert that they are the most rocking, fist-pumping approach to nerdy music in a long time . . " -Synthesis  "It's an unbearably catchy, impossibly cool album . . . . a band to buzz about" -Exclaim!
