Product Notes

Kristofer Widholm : vox, guitar Yuri Weber : bass, vox II Heather Wagner : drums, vox III Biography Two former enemies (a tortured and severe Swedish theologian, and a California dreamer) and a sparkling drummer (a rough and tumble smart aleck artist and Jersey girl) mix their muscular conflicts and bawdy tenderness together in their Williamsburg, Brooklyn, studio to produce some of the most electric and unpredictable rock music in the New York scene. The intricate melodies, odd time signatures, tight harmonies, and cryptic lyrics that result are at once complex and beautifully sparse; a heady interplay of tense guitar, fluid basslines and inventive drumming sparked by the sheer joy of performance makes Morex Optimo's inventive shows a favorite in both art spaces and rock clubs. Morex Optimo wish it were true that the name came from an obscure artwork by Duchamp, a failed 19th century gynecological instrument, hypnosis device, or even a type of high-end cigar; alas it is not, though it is recommended that these concepts are held in mind when listening to the music. The closest approximation is a malformed Latin phrase for 'highest morals'. Other suggestions are encouraged. Fans of XTC, Wire, David Bowie, Television, Spike Jones, The Beach Boys, Tom Waits, Captain Beefheart, Mission of Burma, and Alfred Jarry are encouraged to pick this up and spin around in their chairs.
