Special Problem Music

by Veronica Black Morpheus Nipple

The Human League & The Modern Lovers meet down by the river. Everyone is killed and then made to feel guilty. This is some blippy, beautiful, noisy rock & roll music; Mean and clever, and catchy like syphilis.

Album Notes
Special Problem Music is a flamboyant and adventurous rock album led by singer-songwriter Commodore Vic and multi instrumentalist and producer Sean Drinkwater, who you may know from the band Freezepop. The lovely Bangkok Splendor provides organ parts and backing vocals. Slain Tot (The Unadrummer) and a virtuoso bassist known only as Clancy Park nail down the rhythm tracks both live and on the album.

VBMN's debut album is generally noted for its inventive arrangements, catchy melodies and disturbing lyrical themes. Topics include gender confusion, jealousy, sexual abduction as a cure for existentialism, ice cream, unrequited love, and the desire to subjugate one's peers.

Special Problem Guests include Leah Callahan, Danny Gold (Polystar), Dave Nelson and Karl Thien (Turkish Delight), Matt Martin (Chevy Heston), and Japanese artist Keiko Higuchi.

Much has been written about Veronica Black Morpheus Nipple but very little has been read. Their debut album, Special Problem Music, has been described as "ten years ahead of its time,” which is lucky because ten years have now passed.


Jim Sullivan, Boston Globe, February 16th, 1998
"[Veronica Black Morpheus Nipple] is an over-the-top, odd duck of a band - part-glam, part-sleaze...They get to a rich, "Pump-it-up" sound when sexy nerd organist Bangkok Splendor and guitarist/synthisist Sean T. Drinkwater merged and drummer Slain Tot kicked butt."

Joel Simches, The Noise #178
"Undeniably brilliant...Their live show is a cross between a glitzy cabaret and a back alley freakshow as they tread that fine line between tortured genius and total absurdity. I am absolutely blown away with this CD."

Miss Stacey, Cheeseball #13
"I can't stop playing this record, its ear candy keeps me hungry for more. This band emulates everything positive about post New Wave without any of the trappings of camp."
