Dearest Friends, Fans, Family, Fruitcakes of The Universe, Sirens of Utopia, Patron Saints of Revelry and Mystic Bacchanalians,

This Friday, July 13th @ 10pm will signify the LAST NYC SHOW for VIC THRILL+THE SATURN MISSILE. We have decided to take an indefinite sabbatical and therefore would love to see all of you one last time to trip the night fantastico! The irony of this show is that it's also a party for our retail release of CIRCUS OF ENLIGHTENMENT, available exclusively at Sound Fix in Williamsburg, Brooklyn - the birthplace of our dream to become not rock-stars, but an artistic anomaly of unsalable, obscure genus, ha! Actually, that conflicts with our old motto of "Art for art's sake, but not for the sake of obscurity", so strike that and insert something that makes sense to you, because it's certainly been difficult to make sense of it all for us!

WE LOVE the people that come to our shows, you are exactly the colorful, open-minded, unpretentious, kindred spirits we'd hoped to attract by the music we made (and will continue to make together and separately in the studio). Not only that but we are very proud of the music we've made and this was no easy thing to let go of for either of us, so let that be known that we are like two brothers starting new families, and this is no euphemized eulogy about our choice to put VTSM to rest.

Without further adieu we hope to see you at SOUND FIX (110 Bedford Ave. & N.11th St, Williamsburg, Brooklyn 11211) this FRIDAY the 13th @ 10pm (FREE), with a great thirst for life and limber loins.

Sincerely, with love and gratitude, always and everywhere there is sound,

VT on This American Life

Vic is featured on This American Life in a story about his collaboration with Hassidic rocker Curly Oxide.

My Experimental Phase
Chaim and Billy both lived in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, just blocks away from each other, in worlds that almost never collided. Chaim was a Hasidic Jew — he'd never heard pop music or watched MTV. Billy Campion, known as the rocker Vic Thrill, was the star of an underground band. Billy put Chaim, who took on the name Curly Oxide, into the band, and in just one year, he leapt from the 19th century into the 21st. David Segal, rock critic for the Washington Post, reports.

Vic Thrill is interviewed on WNYC for a special "Coney Island" episode of Soundcheck.

Ballad of a Brooklyn Beach Front
Real estate developers plan to give it a polished look, but Coney Island’s seedy charm lives on in music. On the eve of the annual Mermaid Parade, we look at Coney Island's musical legacy with Charles Denson, Head of Coney Island History Project and author of “Coney Island: Lost and Found, and Brooklyn-based performer Vic Thrill.
