Mirrors

Profile:
Mirrors were a Cleveland, Ohio band that germinated in 1972 and was initially active between 1973 and 1975. The band gushed forth fetid no-commercial-potential proto-punk and avant-psych with the same kind of dark pizzazz as their heroes The Velvet Underground mustered a few years earlier. Original founding members are Jamie Klimek (guitars, vocals) and Jim Crook (guitars, theremin) joined by Paul Marotta (keyboards), Michael Weldon (drums), and either Craig Bell, or towards the end, Jim Jones on bass. From 1986 to 1992 Klimek and Marotta (this time playing bass) reactivated Mirrors along w/ drummer Paul Laurence. Shared members w/ electric eels, X-X, The Styrenes, Rocket From The Tombs, Pere Ubu, Saucers, etc.

Formés à Cleveland en 1971, The Mirrors: Jamie Klimek (vocals, guitar), Craig Bell (vocals, bass), Jim Crook (guitar), Jim Jones (bass), Michael Weldon (drums) & Paul Marotta (guitar, keyboards) s'inscrivent dans la lignée des groupes protopunks de l'Ohio, Rocket From The Tombs, Electric Eels, Pere Ubu...
Influencés par le Velvet Underground, les Stooges, leur musique est une forme de garage psychédélique expérimental et urbain avec des reminiscences du Floyd de Syd Barrett. Le groupe se sépare en 75,
Klimek & Marotta fondent The Styrenes la même année avec Anton Feer (Friction, Ex-Bank-Ex, Feelies, Lounge Lizzard...).
"Hands In My Pockets" est un superbe document édité en 2001 par Overground Records.
