Album Notes
Vic Thrill is a super freak born out of the bowels of the music industry. The band was founded by former members of the Bogmen and Garden Variety, both were successful touring bands in the old millennium. After the demise of both bands, with much unfinished business, the two camps fused their exotic alternative and indie punk in the electronic realm. The live show ranges from full-on multimedia, electronic circus extravaganzas to trashy basement gigs.

The vibe is fast and furious positivity. This is the CD that will stay in your stereo for months.

Vic Thrill's CD, "CE-5," produced by Robbie Adams (U2, Smashing Pumpkins) is the bands first full length release on Circus Clone Records. "CE-5" (Close Encounters of the 5th Kind, see liner notes) delivers a sonic shout out to the far reaches of the universe, and soon there will be an answer.

Crap. If you are venturing to this band because you were a past Bogmen fan, go back. Do not pass GO. And save the dough.

Campion goes for a newer sound and just misses. He misses by such a wide margin it would not be a shock to see the Bogmen get back togather as it has proven the easiest way for the front of the band to make a living. Mark my words!


you must be joking
this cd s u c k s !!! hahahahheheheh just kidding (*v*) (i'm just surprised we're all still alive) ce-5 rules!!! anyone who doesn't buy this cd, i'm gonna personally come to your room and kick your measly little ass... trust me!!! in fact, you better order both the other 2 cds too and in addition, if you don't buy all 3 of billy's cds for all your friends as presents, i'm gonna nuke your entire freaking building with my pulverizer raygun and force you to listen to my "deskpop" cds over and over again for the rest of eternity in the afterlife...so be warned... you maggots !!!


This is a new direction in music.
Vic Thrill truly stands apart from anything out there right now. Their music is infectious, fast, and should make you smile. They have figured out how to blend keyboards and punk guitar, spiking it with humourous lyrics delivered by a bizarre electronic-oid voice effect. Is Vic Thrill the future of punk? They just might be.

CD Baby

Oh yes- an instantly lovable electronic cyber punk world with an irresistible dance beat... as if you fell through the trap door of sanity and into the world of psychedelic bliss with unfashionably clashy, helium-sucking wackos gazelle-jumping on The Yellow Brick Road. Remember the singing bush from The Three Amigos movie? He's featured here too and fully accompanied. The perfect medicine for any tight wads you know; guaranteed to provoke a response.


High energy originality
I hardky ever see a band live and think to myself i want their CD now....but Vic Thrills live show here in the UK was amazing, bought the cd the next day and was not disappointed.
Its kinda psychadelic-drum'n'bass-surf rock. Amazing originality in the songs. you have heard nothing like this before.

lots of fun and makes me want to jump around.


stop the planet of the apes, I want to get off!
Imagine you're on a rollercoaster and your finger is stuck in an electrical socket and the fillings in your teeth are catching this crazy radio signal from you don't even know where, and then you wake up only to find that you really are on that roller coaster with your finger in the socket and the ET's wired into your jaw, and you know what? YOU LIKE IT.

That's pretty much what CE-5 is all about.

A jumping volley of head nodding, high kicking, high gloss sound will jumpstart your juices, that is, unless you have the personality of a plastic cactus.

CE-5 is a hypnotic mix of techno dance, modern day technology and musical inspir
CE-5 is an original recipe! This CD is a musical meal with foreign flavors. WOW! The more I spin the disc, the more my taste buds adjust to the unfamiliar flavors. I especially enjoy tracks 2, 4, and 7. I must say that some of the electric effects on the vocals, are a tad overcooked for my palate. The entree, of Vic Thrill however, earned gourmet status in my book. I guess I’m a purist when it comes to a fine wine, or a good steak. When the steak is that good, you just don’t need any ketchup. Vic Thrill is the fine wine, the choice cut of meat, or however you want to say it. Anyway you phrase it, Vic is a rare talent, and when the ingredients are that good, the meal is going to be great. CE-5 is definitely a leap from the corporate menu of the rap burger with pop fries. …a refreshing leap I might add. It’s different and it should be if it’s going to be original. The only thing this CD is missing is exposure. Spread the word, Bird! This CD will spin!


A thrilling, imaginative musical joyride
"After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible, is music." - Aldous Huxley
Good quote. Remember that when you find yourself lost in silence after listening to CE-5 for the first time, eyes ablaze, head shaking in wonderment, fumbling for words to express what you've just heard. This music is so unbelievably good, original and damn fun that it defies explanation. Why try? Just push play again. And again. And again.


2/3rds Great...1/3rd filler
Nice work. Updated Devo mod/trance thingy going on. Kinda like Jesus Jones without the wussy-factor. Goes well with hipsters at a bbq. But not entirely even. Since the length is a bit short by today's standards (40-something minutes) there are a few songs that don't stand up to the rest. But that's a nit. Looking forward to the next release from these guys.
