Starfucker: “Bury Us Alive”[audio:http://alarm-magazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/03-Starfucker-Bury-Us-Alive.mp3|titles=Starfucker: “Bury Us Alive”]
Portland, Oregon-based Starfucker (or STRFKR, if you’re into the whole no-vowels thing) has made a name for itself by crafting consistently catchy, effervescent electronic pop. Since its inception as a solo project, founding member Josh Hodges has added three members, and the band inked a record deal with Polyvinyl last summer.
With a new album, Reptilians, set for an early March release, the band is on the road, plying its trade. We caught up with multi-instrumentalist Keil Corcoran, and he gave us a grainy, lo-res glimpse into the wild world of STRFKR.
Starfucker’s Cell-Phone-Picture Tour Diary
by Keil Corcoran
My name is Keil. I play drums for Starfucker. I have a piece-of-shit phone called the Motozine ZN5. I have this phone because:
1. It was free
2. It has a five-megapixel camera
3. I am broke
4. It was free
This camera is by no means fit to photograph anything of true consequence. It is, however, terribly handy on tour when awesome things happen/appear.
Ryan [Bjornstad] and Shawn [Glassford] in Seattle looking fine.
