Ancient Heat

The party starts here: Nine-piece disco band Ancient Heat is everything you'll ever need from a bubbling, grooving, vaguely cultish party posse. They've got a horn section, two female lead singers, porntastic guitar, glossy electric piano, vocoder'ed synths, and a hi-hat slashing its way through all that funk with relentless 16th notes. Their recorded debut, the Oh... You Bad 12-inch single, sees its release at tonight's show, and it's a solid party platter with a fine B-side and two remixes for good measure. But Ancient Heat's real strength comes from their mesmerizing live show, in which the mighty army of musicians dons all-white, slightly outlandish matching getups, looking like a cross between ABBA and the Children of God—which, actually, is the perfect way to describe their far-out disco.
