I don’t mind me a little Static-X. Listening to a whole album of these songs in one sitting is a little much, but taken one at a time, their music is heavy, fun, and bizarrely catchy. A lot of that had to do with the unique vocal stylings of the late lead singer, Wayne Static.
Today, Static-X are touring as a tribute to Wayne, with a man named Xer0 fronting them, wearing an eye-catching Wayne-like robot suit. Xer0 is said to be portrayed by Edsel Dope, of the band Dope, and friend of Static-X.
I think this is a pretty cool way for a band to carry on when the frontman is gone forever. Bassist Tony Campos is passionate and enthusiastic, and the crowd eat it all up!
