Cryptic Rock reviewed THE SICK TALK TOUR with ORGY, 9ELECTRIC & DEATH VALLEY HIGH when we hit Amityville, NY April 3, 2015.
As direct support for the night, Los Angeles, CA’s 9Electric are no strangers to the Long Island Hard Rock/Industrial scene. Having previously played the same venue just last year supporting Powerman 5000, and having been to NYC in the past supporting Wayne Static and Spineshank, the band has cut their teeth and carved a nice niche throughout the tri-state area. Fronted by Ron Underwood “Thunderwood,” previously of Opiate for the Masses, the band also features Mikey Lopez on guitar, Casey DC on bass, and Micah Electric on drums. Having recently inked a deal with Another Century Records and released a new EP,Control, the band was ready to bring a new show with different songs to their Long Island cohort. Instantly getting things moving with Underwood and company moving the crowd to Electric’s bombastic beats and grooves, “Time Bomb” was an instant hit, having the floor moving up and down to the pulsing chorus. Moving forward, 9Electric played through some more newer tunes off their recent EP including “Goodbye” and “Feel This.” Underwood stole the show by swinging himself upside down from the rafters on their final number, all while encouraging crowd support. The ladies of the night were definitely smitten with the number “Dirty Girl,” and everyone became a fan with the crew’s last number, a cover of AC/DC’s “Dirty Deeds (Done Dirt Cheap).” It was interesting to hear an Industrial spin on an Classic Rock tune, and the band pulled it off effortlessly before shuffling into the crowd for meet-and-greets the rest of the night.
