CISSY UK Tour July 2010
Cissy is a hybrid; an unlikely meeting of Post-punk and Afrobeat asteroids, skewed in rhythm and time, joyful in collision and radiating polyrhythmic ripples from the core. Matt Dixon, Katie Moore, Gavin Montgomery and Matt Woodward create an unpredictable musical cartwheel. Taking elements of Eno-era Talking Heads, Synthpunk pioneers The Units, Chicago street corner hustlers Heroic Doses and Fivestyle, Cissy also chews up further contemporary influences from bands like Mahjongg and LCD Soundsystem to blow up jittery, wonky and unflinchingly joyous songs.
Members of Cissy have also played in The Lapse (US), The Dragon Rapide (UK), Origami (US) and currently play in Beards (UK) and Executive Legs (UK). Cissy has shared shows with bands such as James Chance & Les Contortions, DAT Politics, Divorce, Cryptacize, Bellini, Origami, Das Boton, Cowtown, Sal.P (Liquid Liquid), Weave!, So So Modern, Lovvers, Antlers, Quack Quack, Fulborn Teversham, Orchestre Tout Puissant, Bilge Pump, Hiroshima Rocks Around, Experimental Dental School, The Violets, Team Gina and more. Cissy also toured the UK and Europe with both Origami (San Francisco) in 2008 and Das Boton (Chicago) in 2009.
