Sister Chain & Brother John
The Androgyne Show


"The Androgyne Show" is the second album from Sister Chain & Brother John - and also the first vinyl release by SOPA. Taking a route from the sparse instrumentation on the debut they improve on that formula as well as expanding it.
Recorded on analogue equipment at their own Dwarfhaus Studios in Berlin it's an album that captures true performances, not computer-adjusted "perfection". Thus we have here ten powerful songs that once again take the listener on a unique journey.

REVIEWS

"Berlin-based Sister Chain & Brother John is a most peculiar and rather unique acquaintance. Victorian glam rock meets dark cabaret moods of the duo's strange, seductive, macabre and highly dramatical theatrical universe. There is something absolutely alluring about Sister Chain & Brother John's peculiar world. (…) There is a constant lurking danger in Sister Chain’s shrill tremulous voice that complements the disturbing universe perfectly. (…) There are glorious highs in the spinning Satan Said, the title number with playful bass, the doomsday heavy When It All Comes Down and the delicious fingerpicked On The Roof."
- Gaffa, Denmark's biggest music magazine, 4 stars.

 

 

"Berlin based Sister Chain & Brother John are on to record number two now so someone must be listening. (...) The majority of this stuff brings to mind the stripped back minimalist punk approach of The Cramps performed by French-Canadian duo Vialka. If they’re not buddies I’d be very surprised. Anyway, if Victorian glam cabaret is your schtick this is going to blow your frickin’ mind. Everything about this record is olde style, from the four-track production to the sleeve photo, shot with an 1860s camera and developed with cyanide on glass plates. Yowza!"
- Norman Records, UK, 4 stars
