Amanda Palmer + The Grand Theft Orchestra - Theatre Is Evil Album Lyrics. 1. Bottom Feeder Lyrics.

Album · 2012 · 16 Songs. On Theatre Is Evil, the gifted songwriter and pianist hones her melodic strategies and affinity for new wave–ish hooks, and she directs a cast of contributors who deliver runaway horns, crashing guitars, glowering bass, and cinematic strings. Palmer’s lyrical prowess stings and tickles: Are you really sure you wanna go/When you can do it with a rock star? she begs on the title track

Vocals Amanda Palmer. Recorded At Sing Sing Studios, Melbourne, Australia. Release Date June 22, 2012. Theatre is Evil Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra. Meow Meow Introduces the Grand Theft Orchestra. 2. Smile (Pictures or It Didn’t Happen).

Artwork – Nicole Duennebier. Artwork – Vladimir Zimakov. Photography By – Kyle Cassidy. Written-By – Amanda Palmer (tracks: 1 to 7, 9 to 23). Notes. Published by Eight Foot Music (ASCAP) except "A Grand Theft Intermission" by Tallinn Tallsman and Sons (BMI).

Palmer and her Grand Theft Orchestra build Theatre Is Evil on a foundation of retro-neon concrete (the 1984 Robin Williams, Soviet-era comedy Moscow on the Hudson is referenced at one point) with delinquent panache, giving nods to 'Til Tuesday and Kate Bush ("The Killing Type"), David Bowie ("Grown Man Cry"), the Knack (. "Melody Dean"), and even Alphaville (the intro to "Want It Back" threatens to explode into "Forever Young" before morphing into a summery, upbeat radio jam that wouldn’t have sounded out of place on the Cars' Candy-O.

Entitled THEATRE IS EVIL, the album was recently recorded in Melbourne with producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Murder By Death, Modest Mouse, Xiu Xiu). Palmer and GTO will embark on a six-city summer tour, unveiling the new album as a series of intimate performances alongside a dynamic visual art exhibit featuring thirty contemporary artists including Francis Bean Cobain, Shepard Fairey, Kristin Hersh (Throwing Muses), David Mack, and Cynthia Von Buhler. Arguably her most pop-influenced album yet, THEATRE IS EVIL showcases Amanda's powerful vocals and talented songwriting in ways that.
