The Vanity Press shed their ties to jalapeno rock in 2010 January when they stumbled onto the sanchester scene. I say stumbled, but they gave it a name. More importantly, they gave it an attitude.
It all started with a bald guy, a beard, some bad recordings, then a plea: “can you turn down just a hair?” It was tall order for a bald man.
Wait, that was 2010 April. I’m getting ahead of myself.
Two months prior, The Vanity Press gave their loud, screeching version of love for the first time to a room full of yuppies at Olmos Bharmacy. they arrived in a brown van equipped with lounge seating and a small table. They sat outside in the van, drinking and smoking, as onlookers inspected their curious situation. And when Nicolas returned to the van (followed in succession by Matthew and Jason) as his guitar groaned to an abrupt halt inside the bharmacy, they cemented themselves – unknowingly – in an idea that audiences wouldn’t soon forget.
Month after month, they killed audiences with a spiked fury of fuzz and feedback, obscure vocals that sound techs begged to be louder, and a hailstorm of drum rolls that convinced listeners Jason was automatic. When they recorded their first three-song demo, ‘Don’t Fall in Love’, in April, even more people began paying attention to the otherwise quiet trio from San Antonio. Their music didn’t just call to people with similar vision; it commanded them. And for the first time, people began to see, feel, and hear something new.
Sanchester had arrived.
