Blonde Redhead Background
Blonde Redhead first took shape in 1993 when Maki Takahashi and Kazu Makino, Japanese art students, by chance were introduced at a New York Italian restaurant to twin brothers, Amedeo and Simone Pace. Their roles were quickly defined with Simone on drums; Amedeo and Makino on vocals and guitars; and Takahashi on bass. Eventually, Steve Shelley, Sonic Youth drummer, caught wind of the band's creative, yet chaotic style. Shelley ended up producing and issuing the group's debut self-titled effort under his own Smells Like Records label. Following the album's arrival, Takahashi split from the fold. The trio that remained carried on and issued a sophomore release, La Mia Vita Violenta in 1995. For the band's next album, Fake Can Be Just as Good, Blonde Redhead was accompanied by Vern Rumsey, guest bass player, of Unwound. By the time 1998 rolled around, the group did away with bass and pared down to vocals, guitars and drums for the In an Expression of the Inexpressible effort. A couple years later, they came out with Melody of Certain Damaged Lemons and the Melodie Cirtronique EP. In 2004, they put out Misery Is a Butterfly. Three years later, 23 was released, which featured a blend of dream pop seasoned with floaty electronic elements. In 2010, Blonde Redhead issued a more raw, electronic-soaked string of tunes that were cut in Stockholm and New York. The year 2014 brought Barragan.
After over two decades together, the band members prove that sticking together, even when siblings are in the mix, can be done. By now, the bandmates know each other inside and out: "At this point, we know how to work with each other and when to stay out of each other's way," said Simone. "We've learned that through the years, which is important of course, you have to find your place. Sometimes I wish there was more communication but it's hard after so many years and a relationship goes in a certain way... but for me it's always great and when I play the songs it makes it all come together again in a positive way." He added, "Recording is difficult because it's a really involved process, especially when they have to do their vocals; when I'm done with my drums, I'm so relieved. But they have to wait until the very end... if there's no vocals then there's no song! We always try to support each other and you learn how to do that, learn how to time it and how to keep some kind of balance - it's basically the same learning experience for a lot of situations in life."
