Biography

There are more than one artist using the name Red Wedding;

Red Wedding 1

Controversial. Openly gay. Post-punk. Alternative rock. Art Rock. Avant Garde. L.A. Underground. Over-the-top theatrics. Red Wedding was all of these, like riding on a musical roller coaster. Mixing elements of vintage 1960’s psychedelic rock, 1970’s glam rock with hints of punk rock and hardcore dance music, this hard-to-pigeonhole band featured the sensual and mesmerizing guitar work of Spider Taylor and the dark and romantic lyrics of Michael Ely (known for his intense stage presence and singing). There never has been a band quite like them before or since.

Red Wedding 2

Red Wedding is the name settled upon for the acoustic duo featuring Blyth Power’s Joseph Porter and Steven Cooper. It’s nothing to do with Billy Idol. Wedding is a district in Berlin, notable in the 1930s for being riddled with wild-eyed Trots, so that’s where we took the name from. The project is an extension of Mr Porter’s solo work, and is intended to add another dimension to his interpretation of the chords A, D and E.

For those of you who know nothing about Blyth Power, and have come straight to this page, Mr Porter has been ploughing that particular furrow now for twenty years, as a crooning drummer. Mr Cooper is a former member of Thanet’s finest, The Maccabees. Both played together briefly in The Whisky Priests, while Mr Cooper has latterly been acting bass player for Goth supremos Dance on Glass. In fact between the two of them they’ve been in more bands than they care to remember. What a pair of old slags.
