The Make-Up

Biography

The Soul-influenced Gospel Yeh-Yeh sound of the Make Up was born out of the still smoldering ashes of volatile anarcho-terrorist DC rockers, Nation of Ulysses. In February of '95, Nation members James Canty, S.A. Gamboa and Ian Svenonious joined ranks with former Frumpies' bassist Michelle Mae, embarking on a secular mission to reinvigorate an Indie Rock community they saw as stultified and flagging. Donning slick uniforms, mod-ish hairdos, and personas of preachers, Make Up shower their listeners with Soul infused Gospel-Punk in hopes of spreading their Liberation Theology -- a musical philosophy whose disgust with the record industry is matched only by its refreshingly optimistic love for the creativity and unity of its congregation.
