For those of you unfamiliar with ADULT., I would like to take a minute to introduce you to them. ADULT. is an electronic duo (husband and wife, Adam Lee Miller and Nicola Kuperus), they are fairly unknown outside of Detroit and a whole of maybe thirty people know about them in Toronto. They have a handful of great electronic albums that raver kids and industrialist alike would love to have in their collection, and it is very rare for you to be able to come across any of their albums in a store or online.
On to the point: ADULT. was in Toronto yesterday, May 30th, 2010, to play an unusual kind of show. The duo recorded the soundtrack to two indie horror films based in the midwest USA where, thanks to films like Napoleon Dynamite, the rest of the world knows NOTHING goes on; and what else could be a perfect setting for a horror film. Anyways ADULT. came in for the screening of the film and to play the soundtrack live to the film.
My best friend and I (the only person I know who knows who ADULT. is) went to go see this screening which was at a very unusual venue, the SPK, Polish Combatants Hall, which boasts a modern interior design and excellent catering (provided by WWII vets).
Upon entering it felt like we travelled back in time to a 1950’s art deco piece, I couldn’t help but feel a little weirded out.
And once ADULT. came on and the film started it was all good…. Until the film became so gory that my unfortunate fear of blood made it so I had to leave and embarrassingly had to walk out on a rare performance! However, I will say that the film was very suited to the style of ADULT. and if it weren’t for the copious amounts of realistic looking blood and stab wound afflictions, I would have loved to stay and hear the whole performance. Adam and Nicola are looking sexier than ever and my friend and I were both quite envious of how fucking hot they still are after being around since the 90s.
If you can ever manage to get a hold of any of their albums… Buy them for me!!!
This youtube video sort of gives you an idea of what the films are like:
