Listen To Members Of Disco Biscuits, Particle & More Jam Out As CIA – Premiere
Formed in 2008, the CIA is one of the baddest power trios that has ever graced the stage. With Clay Parnell (Particle, BioDiesel, BP), Ian McGuire (MJ Project, Sonic Spank, Blurry Nights), and Allen Aucoin (The Disco Biscuits, Dr. Fameus), what started as a one-off performance for Philly musicians quickly blossomed into a tight-knit musical fusion. As all three are quite active with other projects, the group hasn’t performed as often as they’d like, but that doesn’t stop them from letting loose whenever they come together.
Back on November 22nd, 2015, the grooving trio hit the stage at Ophelia’s in Denver, CO for a legendary set of live music. Faces were melted that night, and thanks to the band’s unique improvisational blend of acid jazz and drum n bass, you can relisten once more. Tune in to the full show audio below, exclusively on L4LM:
With just a few shows on the books for this summer, it sounds like CIA is only just getting started. Aucoin spoke to us about the group, determined for more of this sonic goodness throughout 2016. “I love jamming with Clay and Ian – endless possibilities! Every time we get together it’s an explosive musical chemical reaction. This show from Ophelia’s is one of my favorites. Clay and Ian get down and dirty. We could feel how amped the crowd was before we took the stage. It felt so good to feed off that energy and put it right back out there. Looking forward to more CIA shows this summer, and maybe a fall tour! Look out …CIA is coming for you!”
