((Supersystem (formerly El Guapo))) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Supersystem (formerly El Guapo)

This Touch & Go band used to be on Dischord and they used to be called El Guapo. But they're all Supersystem now. The NYC/DC crew blends the bite of punk with the beats of dance. They also throw in some jazzy and trancey guitar lines that, in a way, sounds like a more playful version of The Rapture (as a matter of fact, keyboardist Pete Cafarella has played with The Rapture and also recorded Supersystem's latest self-titled debut.) They also have some of those slinky, sexy "Prince" grooves going on.

Bassist/Screamer Justin Moyer (also known as Edie Sedgwick when he feels like putting on a cocktail dress and high heels...talk about H-O-T!) propels this band with his compulsive shouts and yelps. They've recently played with guys like Q and Not U, The Gossip and Pinback. Now that they've got the name thing figured out, it appears they're fully ready to roll.

Supersystem plays Mercury Lounge, Wednesday, April 20th.
