Seattle's Ononos are a strange trio of processed, angular, and minimalist synth-punks who upturn your musical world and drop you smack-dab in the middle of an underground club on a Gaspar Noé movie set. The synth/drum rhythm section looks like uniformed widows, whose faces are draped with square black veils hanging from white headbands. Meanwhile, Ononos singer Ursula Android wears shapely, design-oriented outfits, from a hermaphroditic dominatrix priest in a black pantyhose mask and white cock ring for an eyeball to a sleek long-tailed jacket, zigzag-patterned pants, and top hat. His movements embody a sort of mechanical alien bride spawn of Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice, and the songs are sadistic post-punk soundtracks to some movie about black leather-clad killer clowns that prowl brightly colored metropolitan downtowns at night. Or maybe that was the setting to a weird dream I had after I saw them play recently. TRAVIS RITTER
