About Lake of Dracula

Between 1995 and 1997 Lake Of Dracula forged a singular approach to dissonant, minimalistic rock music pre-dating both the neo-"no wave" nostalgia trip (popularized by bands like Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Liars) and the current noise rock insurgence (led by Lightning Bolt and Wolf Eyes) by years. Based in chicago, LOD was a veritable midwestern underground supergroup featuring ....James "Marlon" Magas ..(Couch, Magas)....Weasel Walter.. (The Flying Luttenbachers)....Heather M... (The Scissor Girls)...."The Manhattanite".. (a.k.a. Al from U.S. Maple)..and ..Jessica Ruffins.. (Jaks, Sea of Tombs). ..Formed in late 1995, the band issued forth a succinct manifesto made of propulsive anti-rock beats and terse guitar cacophony topped with cryptic, evocative vocal assaults. the net result of this music was one of powerful, hard-edged surrealism in contrast to the introspective "post rock" more associated with the time and place. Their sole self-titled studio album was issued by Skin Graft Records in early 1997 featuring production help by Jim O'Rourke (Sonic Youth, etc.). ..After a final west coast tour in summer 1997, the band called it quits and the various members went on to further infamy with their various pursuits. since then, the name Lake Of Dracula continues to be whispered in reverence throughout the rock underground.
