Little Miss Strumpet

They Live


Helmed by the indefatigable Vic Foresta, a.k.a. Lord Scyentifik, The Force explodes on stage, pumping out a relentless sonic assault of raw energetic hard rock laced with funky grooves and motor-mouthed vocal spit. Like many of the frontier funk groups before them, The Force isn’t merely a band- they are an act. Their shows invariably turn into whacky spectacles, involving the entrance of beautiful female back-up singers from the audience, bizarre dress codes, and Scyentifik not so much dancing to his band’s music, but violently convulsing in time.

With song titles like “All Hollows Eve,” “Insomniac Dreams” and “Razorblade” it’s apparent that these guys dig horror movies, and it shows in their sound. Scyentifik’s verses, while often playful, are laden with references to blood, sex and pain. GOOD FUN! Their six-minute “Insomniac Dreams” wails with images of lust and loneliness in dark city streets. Backed with an eerie synth organ and powerfully haunting vocals.

Immediately recognizable in The Force’s music is their love for Mike Patton. Their twisted amalgamation of heavy distorted funk and rock riffs with rapid fire vocals draw heavily from 90s era Faith No More and Mr. Bungle albums.

Each member brings impressive musical chops to the table, and their strong chemistry honed in the Greater Boston rock-club circuit, carries through into the studio.
