The Other

If The Other didn’t exist already, you’d have to invent them. Right now. Because what would life be like without the world’s weirdest horror punk band? We’d all be worse off, missing out not only on countless uncompromising rock songs, but first and foremost on a uniquely comprehensive audiovisual spectacle. The Other are set to unleash their latest album, The Devils You Know. And they have grown, in Golden Goose Sneakers Sale every respect!

A number of things have happened musically since the arrival of their most recent release, New Blood: Cheap Adidas Shoes along with vocalist Rod Usher, guitarist Sarge von Rock and drummer Doc Caligari, Viktor Sharp has joined the fold as a new band member. The man plays his bass with the precision of Swiss clockwork and is also an accomplished guitarist, songwriter and arranger. “Lots of ideas on the new album were spawned by him, which not only relieves but also supports Sarge’s and my creativity,” explains Rod Usher, who also claims that the head of his new colleague houses “the brain of a medieval executioner.” How very suitable for a band with The Other’s idiosyncratic attitude. Viktor Sharp also happened to be involved in the most unusual song on the new album: ‘Ewigkeit,’ a – wait for it! – real ballad! Usher: “The melody has been buzzing around in my head since We Are Who We Eat (2006), but there’s never been a good concept. Thanks to Viktor, we felt confident enough to go over the top for a change and come up with a really schmaltzy ballad. Kitsch as Kitsch can be.”
