  • Laundry for the Apocalypse plays Round 5 of the 2012 Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase.

Laundry for the Apocalypse is Dangerous Idiots and Techno Squid Eats Parliament member Aaron Sarlo's new outfit, with Matt Rice, John David Hilliard, Drew Wilkerson and Adrian Brigman. Sarlo's vocals sometimes recall those of Pere Ubu front-weirdo David Thomas, while the band's tunes range from the mournful, plaintive "Murdertarp for the Apocalypse" to the slow-build emotional fireworks of "No Despair." Changing directions a bit, "Rob Zombie's Halloween 2" is a punk-y paean to the shock rocker/low budget horror master. The band has an album coming out this summer.

Check out "Murdertarp for the Apocalypse" below.

Note: The print edition of this item misstated that Sarlo was a former member of Dangerous Idiots. In fact, Sarlo is still in that band, which is keeping very busy with at least one forthcoming album and tours planned for the U.S. and U.K., as well as festival appearances. Sarlo is also working on a solo acoustic album.

It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
