The Disco Biscuits Present Revolution In Motion

Article Contributed by Jamie Huenefeld | Published on Thursday, April 4, 2024

The Disco Biscuits released their much anticipated ninth album Revolution in Motion to a sold out crowd at New York City's Webster Hall on March 29, 2024. This was not just any album, but rather a techno "Space Opera," where the Disco Biscuit band members are a subset of the characters. Musicians Erin Boyd, Matteo Scammell, and Cloudchord all contributed to this multi-dimensional and well orchestrated performance.

The visuals were quite stunning, and the product of live animations by Blunt Action and Todd Kushnir. The lazer fueled light show was designed by lighting wizard Alex "Herm" Schneider. The visuals in the venue were equally stellar. Fans walked into life-size alien cutouts from the album’s animated film as well as 3D outer-space visuals on the venue’s video wall.

The show began with a twenty five minute "Shocked!," the first track from the new album. Drummer Allen Aucoin delivered steady beats during this fiery first tune. A perfect transition ensued to "The Wormhole." Vocalist Erin Boyd joined the band as The Queen for an energetic "Twisted in the Road." The crowd was loving this dance friendly collaboration, along with well placed tension and release by guitarist Jon Gutwillig.

Keyboardist Aron Magner elevated the jam by a function of synth during "Another Plan of Attack." Bassist Marc Brownstein glued everything together, as the band descended into another deep house jam that quickly evolved into "Times Square." The music certainly felt like a space ship at this point. The set ended on a high note with "Freeze."

The second set picked up where the first set left off: waste deep in a mind melting techno space opera. Matteo Scammell contributed vocals during this raging tune as The Scientist. This feel good dance tune segued into "Spaga's Last Stand," which featured producer Cloudchord on guitar, who also helped produce Revolution in Motion. This built into a trance driven climax, as Magner donned a large keytar while he and Cloudchord played back to back.

Another non-stop series began, starting with "Who's In Charge?" and the interstellar beats from Aucoin. An interstellar transition into an eighteen minute "The Deal" followed. The high energy, layered music was driven by Gutwilig's galactically charged guitar, and did not stop, like a "Space Train," which also happened to be the next tune. Another raging transition led into the ominous "One Change to Save the World." "Why We Dance" ended this non-stop sequence, and saw Boyd return to the stage on vocals at the Queen.

The show ended close to 1am with the last track of the new album, "To Be Continued." This included another appearance by Scammell as the Scientist.
