Public Display Of Affection
Attempts to describe the sound of Public Display Of Affection usually end up in a strange mash of genres, so we’ll just throw out a few keywords: punk, dramatic duets, quirky jazz. This is not so much a band as a mixed-media art project conceived by Jesper Munk and performer Madeleine Rose (of the dance theatre collective Das Gegenteil), expanded to include Welsh filmmaker and punk prophet Lewis Lloyd (Plattenbau) and Berlin drummer Anton Remy (Baketown). In their live shows, P.D.O.A. have taken up nothing less than salvaging the unconventionality and craziness of the German capital through fearless eccentricity. Our inner voyeurs are thrilled.
