Madder Rose

Responsible for a number of the sweetest and, unfortunately, most overlooked indie rock from the ’90s, NY City’s Madder Rose included guitarist Billy Coté, drummer Johnny Kick, bassist Matt Verta-Ray, and guitarist/vocalist Mary Lorson. Their wonderful 1993 debut record, TAKE IT Down, presented the band’s earning mix of Lorson’s dulcet tone of voice and Coté and Lorson’s eloquent music; although it was a crucial success, that record and its similarly elegant 1994 follow-up, Anxiety On, both eluded industrial achievement. The group came back in 1997 using the trip-hop-inspired Tragic Magic and released the like-minded Hello June Fool 2 yrs later. It had been the swan melody for the group, however, not for Coté and Lorson’s cooperation, as each added to the other’s following tasks: Lorson created Saint Low and Coté produced the Jazz Cannon. In 2003 Coté and Lorson also released an record of their various other interact, Piano Creeps.
