Black Sugar Transmission
'Killing! Black Sugar Transmission rocks more with each listen' -- Vernon Reid Black Sugar Transmission is the brand new musical initiative of a NYC-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist called Andee. BST's self-titled debut album, described as 'fist-pumping, melodic and highly destructive dance-rock' (David Adler, Philadelphia Inquirer and NY Times), is an uber-catchy, turbo-charged amalgamation of hard rock, electro, postpunk, glam and pure pop. The album also features the drumming talents of Jerry Gaskill (KING'S X) and Matt Farley (BULLY). The Black Sugar Transmission debut CD has enjoyed heavy radio play at college stations (over 70) throughout North America. As the live band shapes up for gigs in fall 2008, Andee is hard at work on new BST material, and is collaborating with a host of very exciting special guest musicians including Dug Pinnick of King's X, Patti Rothberg, Acey Slade and Vernon Reid. **Also check out Black Sugar Transmission's cover of 'The Ghost at Number One,' on the just-released Jellyfish tribute album, Sensory Lullabies, on Burning Sky Records!** Andee has no last name and lives in Brooklyn, New York. His last band pOp*stAr*kiDs (whose debut CD was a national CMJ chart success in spring of 2000) ruled the Lower East Side club scene with a neon-gloved fist from 1999 to 2006. He has also performed with everyone from members of Scissor Sisters and King's X to Boy George. Iconoclastic music journalist Tris McCall once noted 'Andee spikes his hair like Daniel Ash but can be as refined as Peter Murphy.' Guitar hero Nuno Bettencourt un-ironically called him 'the future of rock and roll.' Andee loves techno parties, cats, hair products, Slayer, vodka, following Madonna around the world, coffee and *YOU*.
