.357 Lover the band Corn Mo always wanted. .357 Lover is a Brooklyn-based band whose songs are inspired by grandiosity of arena rock, the lure of time travel, the technicolor haze of childhood, Victorian steampunk science, the beauty of women and the lust for immortality.
.357 Lover have supported They Might Be Giants and Ben Folds, introducing their fantastical style of neo-arena rock to new fans young and old. They’ve also backed up John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) and Andrew WK, and even wrote and performed Alice Wakeman: A Rock Opera, at the Ars Nova Theater in NYC. In 2010, the band’s video for the song “Event Horizon” was featured as a Top 10 selection on Attack of the Show. The resulting viral onslaught devastated YouTube (it’s still sore) and won admirers from the farthest corners of the globe. They also collaborated with Circus Una in the production of the rock musical Circus By the Sea. In 2014, they collaborated with The Love Show and created the rock ballet Severed: The Tragic Loves of Frankenstein’s Monster.
.357 Lover consists of Ron Salvo (drums), Avi Fox-Rosen (guitar), Steve Dawson (guitar) Dave Wallin (bass), and Corn Mo (piano and vocals). .357 Lover’s dynamics include power-chord riffs and densely-packed, narrative structures, a homunculus of Queen and Tiny Tim. The first EP Your Favorite Hamburger is Cheeseburger was released in 2007. The long-playing sophomore effort Diorama of the Golden Lion was released in 2009. In 2014, they released a vinyl record/board game called The Purchase of the North Pole. They are working on the next one . . .
