Daniel Riddle’s first incarnation of his musical alter-ego was Black Acid and the Wombstar Orchestra. Featuring keyboardist Melinda DiCillo, guitarist Roger Campos, Bassist Nathan Jorg, the band quickly gained a large audience with their dreamy sound— self dubbed “coma-core”. After adding drummer Scott Adamo (ex Wipers) and percussionist Joseph Trump (ex Pig Face), the band recorded their debut album titled “Womb Star Session” (1995). The album was recorded live during a radio station broadcast, capturing the lush sound and epic delivery the band was becoming known for. Their sophomore release “Sunlit” was recorded in early 1996 and helped bring the band super-cult like status, as well as starting the group off on a career of sound track work. “Royal Subjects” was the bands next album, released in 1998; recorded as a soundtrack for an independent film. The group collaged a mix of songs and soundscapes, exploring new territory in arrangement and instrumentation. For his next project Riddle put together a new band with a new batch of songs, calling it King Black Acid and the Starseed Transmission. With Scott Adamo (drums), Sarah Mayfield (guitars), Bobeck (bass), Pete Ficht (keyboards), and eventually Sean Farrell (keyboards) joined Riddle to form King Black Acid and the Starseed Transmission. It was this incarnation of KBA that would result in the full length album, “Loves a Long Song”, released in October 2000. The album was released to excellent reviews. Finally, the industry and the fans had a record with a more distilled songwriting style that worked well with both radio, film and television, hard-core audiophiles and especialy the live audience.
