Aphotic Segment thanks the many gents and ladies who made it out to last month's funky rambunctious jams. And despite the seasons, the fall seems to be unrelenting with all our searing nose burgers. We also find ourselves riding on the dorsal of reality's ever-changing moment. As such, it's important to us that we capture some of the most intriguing spirits along the way and help to perpetuate their sonic influence. The Mitchell Bros. are precisely those spirits and they continue to serve as a conduit to music language in Detroit, to this day!
In the very early '00s there were few DJ duos in Detroit that looked backward as ferociously as the Mitchell Bros. They rejected the minimal techno movement of the day and played dance-punk, ghetto-tech, disco and electro records from the late '70s and early '80s. Not really brothers, they sometimes bickered in public during their sets like blood relatives, and (rumor has it) fought in private long after the party was over.
A dozen years later, the Mitchell Bros - Mikel "Detroit Threads" Smith and Walter "Nospectacle" Wasacz - have settled down: no, we don't expect them to brawl at the decks, but, yes, we do expect them to bring some of the blistering tunes that inspired Smith's notoriously graphic XXX PPP (as in triple X Punk, Pabst and Porn) nights at Hamtramck's Belmont lounge. It's time to strip down to your dancing clothes - or more - and get physical again. Come down and find somebody to love Oct. 5, as the Mitchell Bros will be joining Aphotic Segment hosts Drew Pompa and Soren Kenny at Nancy Whiskey, 2644 Harrison St. in Detroit's North Corktown. The heat drops at 10 p.m. and goes until 2 a.m. Always Free!
