I was recently voted best electronic act and best drummer in Albuquerque, and my band, Vertigo Venus, garnered Best punk band. I especially like the fact that the Alibi makes me sound like only a marketing guy by the time they get to Best drummer; never mind the fact that I played over 100 shows last year with Diverje and Vertigo Venus combined, or that I work my ass off for what I do... nah, that doesn't matter. They also mention that my music makes you think you're in a "Bush re-education camp", and that I have an "evil sounding voice". My bet is that they listened to "Welcome to postwar USA" once, and decided that En Esch's voice was mine. I guess that's all ok, but I would have liked it if there had been even a mention of all the work I do as a drummer, because it is a lot.

either way, thanks to all those who voted, your support means the world to me!

Check the specs:


Best Punk Band
Vertigo Venus
vertigovenus.com • myspace.com/vertigovenus
It has the quick chord changes, rapid tempo and antiestablishment attitude of a punk band, but there’s more to Vertigo Venus. The band could also be considered an industrial act or an electronic outfit. Punk is a genre that embraces change and encourages the defiance of convention. That’s exactly what Vertigo Venus has done with synthesizers and metal riffs.

Best Electronic Act
Brian Botkiller
brianbotkiller.com • myspace.com/brianbotkiller
This guy can compose a symphony with a synthesizer. Sometimes you feel like you’re inside a video game or a George W. Bush re-education camp; but Brian Botkiller’s ability to transport you into a different realm is a gift. His evil-sounding voice, danceable beats and frightful keyboard create a beautiful nightmare of strange sounds.

Best Drummer
Brian Botkiller from Vertigo Venus
brianbotkiller.com • myspace.com/brianbotkiller
Beside banging the skins with the greatest of ease, Brian Botkiller is a regular Svengali at pulling for BoB votes through the Internet's many spidery arms of networking. Way to drum/organize, Botkiller!
