Phideaux - Biography
|last update : 05-05-2012 10:42|
|Phideaux Xavier is a rock and roll singer. His first and earliest influence was Alice Cooper (well, maybe John Lennon before that...). Psychedelic outrageous music is what he grew up craving and seeking. Now, many years later, Phideaux makes albums that harken back to the "anything-goes" approach of the late '60s/early '70s -- music that requires involvement from the listener.|
Phideaux, who grew up outside of NYC, has performed and written music since early childhood and has fronted or appeared in various bands throughout the years (Mirkwood, Sally Dick & Jane, The SunMachine, and Satryicon - a postpunk rock band where he played bass).
The band Phideaux comprises many friends who have known each other since early childhood (Phideaux Xavier and Valerie Gracious were in nursery school together). They produce recordings of adventurous art rock music. They have eight albums, each unique in sound and content. Phideaux creates mysterious and melodic music for the sheer love of it, independently releasing recordings which have been complimented for capturing the essence of classic rock music while remaining modern and distinctive.
A dark wave of progressive music for the post-punk generation, the mesmerizing and eclectic sound of Phideaux have been described as funny, serious, doomy, derivative, innovative, pretentious, goth-tinged space folk "prog" rock, They are inspired by mellotrons and flutes and keyboard heavy music but also love dual lead guitar and power chords. Syncopation and tricky time signatures are sometimes utilized but always there is melody to be hummed and riffs to invade your ears and mind. The lyrics tell stories, sometimes clearly, sometimes abstrusely, but always with an intent to spark an image or metaphor.
