Two members of Moira Scar — LuLu Gamma Ray and Roxy Monoxide — also perform as V.E.X., Ventriloquest Ectoplasmold Xanaxax, a mouthful of a band name that’s as inscrutable as the music these Oakland artists produce. Descriptions of Moira Scar are similarly over the top, noting the outfit’s debts to death rock, goth, psychedelic, and industrial, along with some cosmic or pseudo-scientific terminology for emphasis. Soberly, Moira Scar, which is performing at the Hemlock (1131 Polk St., San Francisco) Saturday, sets noisy scree and dramatic vocals atop rollicking low-end grooves. It sounds gloomy, unnerved, and a tad cracked, but Moira Scar’s live show, fraught with outlandish stage decor and visual projections, reinforces the group’s overall garish, sci-fi garbage aesthetic. It’s campy — unabashed and loud — executed with enough conviction to infect even the most stoic listeners. It’s hard not to stagger away from a Moira Scar show without sputtering nonsense in the futile hope of rationalizing the experience.

East Bay Express reviews Scarred For Life!


East Bay Express February 27th, 2013.
by Whitney Phaneuf

Moira Scar, Scarred for Life. Any attempt to describe Moira Scar's sound — which is like stumbling upon a band of satanic, opera-singing, goth-punk gypsies in the middle of a PCP trip — sounds silly, but the music, while playful, is executed with great care. Most of the ten songs on Scarred for Life even border on catchy — for example, "Spacetime Resonators" with its repetitive, hyperactive guitar hook. The band's mix of psychedelia, punk, glam rock, and industrial may be best compared to an avant-garde outfit like Psychic TV, in that the only real expectation is that it will be loud and weird. (Resipiscent)
 At Cafe du Nord (2170 Market St., San Francisco) on Saturday, Mar. 23. 8 p.m., price TBD.

East Bay Express review

Moira Scar, Slink to Intensity
Moira Scar reminds one of when punk was weirder and a lot more fun. Like a demented hybrid of the New York Dolls, Sonic Youth and dark cabaret — plus some deliberately strange and provocative visuals — it's like GWAR for art school kids. "Slink to Intensity" sounds like it came off the soundtrack to an odd French animation, while "You Make Me Scream" has an almost Celtic folksy edge to it. If you're a lover of all things weird, dark, and kind of twisted, you're going to adore Moira Scar. (self-released)
