Blonde Redhead

Blonde Redhead was started by Kazu Makino, Maki Takahashi and twin brothers Simone Pace and Amedeo Pace in 1993.  Shortly after the band released their first album Maki Takahashi left the band, and then there were three.  blonderedheadI had the privilege of seeing Blonde Redhead two summers ago at Randall’s Island.  Their set was by far one of the best of the night. These three know how to rock.  Half way through a song Kazu Makino will put down her guitar and take over the drums all while continuing to provide the sickest of vocals.  

Their music has been compared to that of Sonic Youth, but in my opinion they are one of a kind.  Kazu Makino’s eerily high pitched voice creates a sound like none other, and I like it.  Blonde Redhead’s 7th and most recent album, “23” came out in 2007 and is still creating buzz.  They are scheduled to play a New Years eve show at the Terminal 5.  If you enjoy a great performance, incredibly beautiful music, and a rocking good time then a ticket to see Blonde Redhead is an excellent choice to ring in the New Year.
