All the Queen's Men Presents: 'Madame Static' on Mad Monarchy Records Boston Globe: 'Combining tribal beats with astral tones, the band offers an all-encompassing buffet. And with it's closing pair of remixes included, this album is ready to go from the radio to the rave tent...' Meet Madame Static. She's all the rage. She's ultra modern, but still a little traditional. We think you're going to love her. Madame Static is the latest release from Boston's All the Queen's Men: Christine Zufferey, vocals, samples, keys; Catherine Capozzi, guitars, noise escapes; Christopher Farrell, bass; and Tamora Gooding, drums, percussion, drum loops. The album, which represents an exciting new musical direction for the five-year-old outfit, features eight tracks, including five new AQM compositions: 'You Want Me,' 'Fit the Dress,' 'We're the Same,' 'Azalaya' and 'Naha.' 'What we're trying to do with the music is bridge rock with electronic music,' Gooding explains. Gooding calls the musical blend on Madame Static 'rocktronica,' and adds, 'I think when you say that one word, it really defines what we're trying to do - and in what direction we're heading.' Produced by All the Queen's Men, Madame Static was recorded in the spring of 2001 at Electric Space Blanket Studios in Boston with Gooding and Zufferey engineering and mixing. Marc-Dieter Einstmann mastered the recording at Sonic Silver Studio. Besides the five new AQM tracks, Madame Static includes three remixes of 'Azalaya' - two industrial-style remixes by Bill T. Miller, who is well known for his work with Boston-area noise bands, and one remix by Hostage, a Swiss techno duo that includes Zufferey's brother, Andy. The lead track, 'You Want Me,' has been included in the soundtrack for the independent film, Role Play, which is currently being screened at film festivals across the country. All the Queen's Men will be touring extensively in the Northeast in support of Madame Static during the latter part of 2001 and into 2002.
