This throbbing 32-piece band of masked chaos invites all to dissolve the performer / audience divide and melt into the bedlam. Denver’s Itchy-O Marching Band is a percussion-centered electronic ensemble and the mobile arm of the experimental film / music troupe Itchy-O. The group brings their sophisticated, savage sound to Alternative Tentacles, home of the weird and unruly! With a driving tribal drum corps complemented by an arsenal of special surround sound effects units (including synthesizers, theremin, vocoders, and several other hand held electronic devices), Itchy-O immerses the listener from every angle in an electric bog of music, ephemera and spectacle.On their debut LP Burn the Navigator, Itchy-O provides the soundtrack to the End Times, a grand apocalyptic party that invites one to leave the world behind. From the opening fireworks of “Orange Dev” to the explosive blasts of “Jaywalker” and the jungle calls of the “Dance of Anunnaki,” the reality-defying Itchy-O dashes all expectations.
