The Psychic Paramount

Profile:
Psychedelic band from NYC, formed in 2002 by guitarist Drew St. Ivany and bassist Ben Armstrong after the dissolution of noise rock band Laddio Bolocko. Beginning with solo acoustic recordings by St. Ivany, they soon booked a European tour with a very short time to find a drummer. Finding Tatsuya Nakatani, the band had less than a week to practice before setting out for multiple shows in France and Italy. From this tour came the CD Live 2002: The Franco-Italian Tour, featuring recordings at locations throughout the tour, as well as a Super 8 video shot by New York filmmaker Aran Tharp. Nakatani left the band soon thereafter, but a new drummer was found in Sabers drummer Jeff Conaway. The band went into the studio this time to record 2005's Gamelan Into the Mink Supernatural, released by No Quarter Records. In the spring of 2007, they toured the USA with Trans Am and Zombi. In February 2011, the band released their long awaited second album, simply entitled "II" on No Quarter Records, to positive reviews.
