We recently befriended Rose for The Madman on Facebook not really sure of what to expect. Facebook makes it easy to connect to hundreds of people daily with posts and funny links, political properganda (as we like to misspell it) and so much more! Once in a while, you come across a true gem. This precious jewel goes by the name of Roses For The Madman! His music is sick and twisted and his powerful genderfuck image follows suit for sure. His sound, albeit naturally futuristic pulls strong currents from the rave and techno days of Limelight in its hey day. We’re just delving into the world that is Roses For The Madman. We’ll let the music and the art speak for itself for now. Three simple words…”Get. Into. It”
Here’s a promo video for his recently released full length “Anarchy In The Discotheque”
IN RESISTANCE OF CELEBRITY CULTURE, ALL THE REAL STARS WENT UNDERGROUND………..
Who, or what, is Roses For the Madman? Born or invented? Visual icon or fashion faux pas? Musically gifted or a disco fluke? Roses For the Madman is all of these things and none of them. R4TM Started musical life dubiously known as ‘Paul Moneo’ in the 90s with indie label Stephan Records. The first single ‘It’s Over’, produced by JJ Jeckzalic from ‘The Art Of Noise’ and Bob Kraushauer (PSB, DOA, FGTH), was released to great reaction from regional radio stations up and down the UK. It was a great song, but the production was weak, and the video was worse. Radio one refused to play it on the grounds it was ‘too disco’ at a time when ‘real’ bands with jangly guitars and floppy hair were making a short lived comeback, and anything electronic was discarded.
Roses For The Madman just finished shooting a brand new video and we’ll be sure to post it once it’s been released. This is just the beginning!
