Glitter Wizard plays a unique brand of freak rock Julian Cope described as “unashamedly glamorous hard rock,” and he’s not wrong. These San Francisco longhairs from another dimension were raised on punk and mix screaming riffs with a high-octane stage show full of sequins, headbanging and a sonic attack that’ll leave you dazed and ready for the next hit. Imagine the Stooges stole the outfits from the Spiders from Mars, synth man Dik Mik from Hawkwind and hit the stage on a speed bender.
“Glitter Wizard is the only band I will ever serve, and I love their outfits!” – Satan.
Joe Sib, co-founder and co-conspirator of Side One Dummy Records for 25 years, has continued to climb up the ranks of the comedy scene. Joe released his first comedy record, Joe Sib Nowhere Near the Top, in April 2017 which debuted #3 on the Billboard’s Comedy Chart. From the 1980s punk scene to millennium parent, Joe’s comedy takes you on a manic, ride from growing up in the era of “safety last”, and into the present, as he tries to helicopter parent without a license.
