Paisley Babylon Booking

Paisley Babylon Brian Eno ambient experimental as loud as possibleI’m aggressively booking gigs for Paisley Babylon again…it’s time to unleash the power of not one, not two, but THREE theremins, all run through an insane maze of stompboxes, echo machines, and loopers upon the world.

Did I mention the video display that accompanies the music? A fast-paced visual journey through the wasteland of exploitation cinema, Italian giallos, and ancient, crumbling go-go dancing film footage.

Paisley Babylon is at times surreal, sexy, psychedelic, sinister, dreamlike, ethereal, floating, and menacing. Think of a one-man version of the Legendary Pink Dots but with stage directions whispered by the ghosts of Hunter S. Thompson and William Burroughs.

Behold the trippy strangeness that awaits you at a Paisley Babylon show–samples below. PB wrapped up the summer of 2014 by playing a packed house at Comfort Station, providing the unusual soundtrack to a Russian silent film called Aelita, Queen of Mars. Now restless and looking for more on-the-road kicks, Paisley Babylon wants to play a record store, unsuspecting coffee house, art gallery or more traditional venue near you.

Theremin Babylon At Capricon 34 Wheeling Illinois


theremin babylon performance

I always like to say that I am ALL of Paisley Babylon and HALF of Binary Partners, so when BP performs, technically speaking that’s Paisley Babylon up there albeit in a different band….but I am still playing the theremin.

SO, Paisley Babylon will be part of the insanity at Capricon 34 in Wheeling, Illinois when Binary Partners performs an all-ages live show on the 15th floor where the Capricon party suites are located. The show is Saturday February 8 at 9PM. More information is at
