Quintron has been making genre-defying noise and “Swamp-Tech” dance music in New Orleans for over fifteen years. The majority of his ten full-length albums have the psychedelic soul of New Orleans garage R&B, filtered through a distorted Hammond B-3, and a cache of self-made electronic instruments. He has also released strange soundscapes based on inner-city field recordings of frogs and neighborhood ambiance. Quintron regards his most significant creation to be his patented instrument called the DRUM BUDDY, a light activated analog synthesizer that creates murky, low-fidelity, rhythmic patterns.
Miss Pussycat, otherwise known as Panacea Theriac, is a New Orleans based puppeteer. Born in Antlers, Oklahoma, she began learning puppetry at the Christian Puppet Youth Ministry at the First Baptist Church of Antlers. She began her professional career in New Orleans and assisted in founding the influential nightclub Pussycat Caverns. For the past fifteen years, she has traveled internationally conducting puppet shows in rock clubs and at international festivals. She is the President of Rhinestone Records and produces vinyl LPs of her puppet’s many bands.
The Quintron and Miss Pussycat live show is one of barely controlled electronic chaos, “Swamp-Tech” dance beats, small explosions, clothes, and entertaining puppet stories. You can experience them live at their own secret club, the Spellcaster Lodge in New Orleans, or on one of their many tours around the world. This act somehow has equal relevance in sleazy nightclubs, pizza restaurants, and university lecture halls.

D-Town Brass’s name is only an indication of what you might expect to hear from this savory jazz outfit: The 14-piece ensemble indeed spouts a great deal of brass, along with drums, marimba, bass, keys and vibraphone. Every D-Town Brass composition is so deliciously distinct, you’d never know you were listening to the same collection of crazy cats. Since D-Town Brass doesn’t fit snuggly into any cohesive genre, it is more prudent to highlight the diversity among their scintillating selections.

On “Zombie Rag,” horns wail and drums pop like hollow bones. One might divine a scad of skeletons jiving to the beat in an eerie underworld disco. On “Mystery Town,” the persistent bass line provides Bond-esque spy motion. Horns sound in succession, ascending to a string of saxophone and trumpet solos. “Totem Pole” is a minimally percussive piece whose spare arrangements are inviting. It’s as if the entire song grows in a question that doesn’t get answered until the end, when it asserts itself like a dance around a rapid rhythm. While D-Town Brass are no strangers to cacophony or free jazz’s open forms, “Switch Blade Brush” proves that they likewise don’t shy from tradition. The track is reminiscent of the bop jazz arrangements of Dexter Gordon and Illinois Jacquet. with D-Town Brass
