Sightings’ deconstuctionist sound rock gets rid of the melodies and hooks of regular rock & move, leaving a mash of growls and responses — through the high-pitched grind in your guitar strings towards the groan in the bass amp. From the destructive post-punk clutter that beautifully sources weird clothes like Einstürzende Neubauten along with the early-’80s no influx scene and loud contemporaries like Wolf Eye, Dark Dice, Lightning Bolt, and Ruins. Sightings shaped in NEW YORK in 1997 with Tag Morgan (electric guitar and vocals) and John Lockie (drums) obtaining jointly and jamming. A season later they fulfilled bassist Richard Hoffman, as well as the trio released a slightly even more traditional, straight-ahead rock and roll single in the Independence From imprint. After recognizing their art rock and roll potential and sketching inspiration from famous brands Yoko Ono, Cabaret Voltaire, and Crimson Transistor, Sightings documented their self-titled debut, released on Fill Information in 2002. The group released two even more albums for Fill — 2003’s Absolutes and 2007’s With the Panama — before switching brands to Jagjaguwar and liberating Town of Straw this year 2010.
