JG Thirlwell’s Steroid Maximus @ Prospect Park

Australian composer, producer, performer, visual artist JG Thirlwell has has a profoundly influential effect in New York City’s underground music world and in my overall taste in music. Listening to his Foetus work exposed me to the underbelly of NYC sound and completely rocked me. Tonight we had the treat to witness a never before heard piece performed by Steroid Maximus, a big band/exotica mini-orchestra. He was also joined onstage with Steven Berstein as well as an expanded brass section. The show was an experimental and contemporary orchestration of sound. An amazing night under the stars.
