Green Room’s Black Friday, a weekly night of new wave/industrial/post-punk/dark house/EBM, is proud to present….

::::::

“New York City’s electronic/rock duo, formed when Mike Furey and Tom Napack met as students at Fordham University. Furey, a singer-songwriter trained in piano, wanted to experiment with a more electronic sound and Napack, a musician-programmer, was looking to collaborate with a lyricist. Their first recording, “The Rejection,” caught the attention of legendary record mogul Seymour Stein who offered the duo a demo deal with Sire Records and facilitated their signing to Cordless Recordings, a digital imprint of Warner Music Group. Soon after, the duo signed with former Warner Bros. Records Senior Executive, Craig Kostich of Operational Art, for management.”

A WALK IN THE PARK
Returning to Nature with MIKE FUREY of DANGEROUS MUSE
By Lori Zimmer
August 2011

The first time I saw  perform, I had no idea what year it was. Being a child of the 80s, I was heavily into music, even in primary school. I loved (and still love) synth-pop bands like Soft Cell, Human League, a-ha, New Order, Thompson Twins–and Dangerous Muse had a quality that they all possessed. It isn’t so much just their musical style, but just the sheer quality of singer Mike Furey’s voice–it is timeless, and moody, evocative of what I imagine underground clubs in New York in  sounded like. His looks evoke that time as well, not necessarily his style of dress, but somehow his facial features seem un-modern, in a classic way, a fusion of James Dean and Morten Harket of a-ha (without a drop of Luke Perry).

Apparently, I am not the only one who sees this, as the band has recently been featured in ’ (Merchant of Venice, Girl With a Pearl Earring) latest film, , which opened July 29th at House of Boys is centered around the 1980s gay dance club scene in Europe, and Dangerous Muse not only appears in the film, but also contributes original and era-appropriate cover songs on the soundtrack.

One sweltering July day I met up with Mike, with photographer , to take a stroll through Central Park’s Ramble, and talk about the film and the new album. Mike often performs in deliciously sexy designs and accessories, from zentai-like checkered body stockings to bondage-inspired pieces, so we decided a simple “return to nature” (by NYC standards) was appropriate, considering his new move to continue Dangerous Muse on his own.

As we hiked deeper and deeper into the  woods, climbing rocks and dirt in the most inappropriate shoes ever, we all suddenly burst out laughing. The path quickly became strewn with more and more used condoms, syringes and caution tape. It seemed we couldn’t escape the sexual underbelly of New York, even on our return to nature. So, why fight it anyway?

Lori Zimmer: How has Dangerous Muse changed/evolved in the last year?

Mike Furey: At one of our last shows, I looked out into the crowd to see that some people were actually sitting on each others shoulders and dancing their asses off. It was the first time that I had seen this in New York in a long time. There was this overwhelming sense that the boundaries had come down, that people were losing themselves and we were coming together. I give every drop of myself on that stage and they give back to me. It’s like sex. This past year has been all about developing more layers, to create a dynamic and exciting live show.

LZ: I know everyone keeps asking about the release of your next album, but you’re rationing the songs one by one. “I Can’t Help It” is your next single to be released–can we expect an accompanying video?

MF: Over the last few months, I have been working with a New York based video artist to develop more visual content for our live shows. That’s my main focus at the time.

LZ: You pretty much play yourselves in House of Boys. Do you see the 80s parallel in your music?

MF: I’m inspired by artists from that time (Depeche Mode, New Order, Sisters of Mercy) but my production decisions are based on what sounds and feels good at the moment, not attempts to simulate what’s already been done.House of Boys was a very special project. The movie has a beautiful message of love and awareness and I feel honored to have contributed to the soundtrack, along with such brilliant artists as Jimmy Somerville of Bronski Beat and Spandau Ballet. Shooting our scenes in Germany and working with the cast and crew on the production are some of my favorite memories.

LZ: We talked a bit about the pieces you wear during your performances. What influences what you wear? What would you categorize your style as?

MF: My work, including my style, is influenced by my heart and my gut. It’s from within. I am excited by high contrasts, subtle details, and the unknown.

LZ: Who are some of your favorite designers to wear on stage?

MF: Collaboration is key for me. Every piece that I wear is part of a larger thought, a bigger gesture. I don’t just wear designers, I wear my friends. I wear what we select and create together. It is a union, a coming together. In this way, I become a designer and they become a performer. Here’s a short list of the people I love: Zaldy, Asher Levine, Franc Fernandez, Brian Lichtenberg, Goddollars, Gregory Alexander, Zana Bayne, Willa Wirth, and Alex + Chloe.  I have also had the pleasure to work with personal stylists Stephen Candelino, Brett Bailey, Sah D’Simone and Patrick Mackie. Calvin Klein, Levi’s, Dior Homme and, most recently, Petrou/Man, are friends of Dangerous Muse and have contributed special pieces for appearances and performances.

LZ: New York feels like it is having a nightlife resurgence–is there anyone/anything that you are finding particularly inspiring?

MF: I think what is happening is a resurgence of day-life in New York. People are working very hard during the days, to make things happen in the world–financially and creatively. A few years ago, it was more about nightlife for nightlife’s sake. But now it is becoming, in a way, what it was back in the day–an escape, a necessary release from long hours at the grindstone. It is less pretentious, friends having fun.

LZ: What are the goals on your plate for the next year?

MF: The next year is centered upon live performance and connecting with people who enjoy our music. We are looking forward to playing more international shows. In addition to developing the live show, as I have mentioned, I have also begun to balance larger scale shows with smaller, intimate performances. Last week, I was invited to perform at The Watermill Center, an art organization founded by the artistic director, Robert Wilson–an absolute genius. I collaborated with Meg Harper, best-known for her work with Merce Cunningham, and Illenk Gentille Mohamed, of Indonesia, on an expressionistic performance entitled “Danger in the Kitchen.”  I played the piano and sung as they danced. I would say that the most important goal I have, beside finally unveiling the full-length album, is to expose more of myself.

A Chit-Chat With Mike Furey of Dangerous Muse

Chances are you’re already familiar with dark electro-pop outfit , whose synth-heavy, cinematic dance gems and sexy theatrical shows are responsible for getting all the cool club kids moshing away and losing their minds at many a downtown venue. I witnessed the debauchery first-hand at the band’s headlining gig last week, in which a sea of goth kids rocking head-turning looks and flashing devil horns raved like it was 1994 as Dangerous Muse front-man, the foxy Mike Furey, crooned away and worked the stage like a madman. Consider me an uber fan. I caught up with the rock star himself after the show.

How would you describe Dangerous Muse’s sound in 5 words or less? Electronic, past meets future.

How do you choose your performance looks? From where do you draw your inspirations?
I’m inspired by rehearsals with my band, especially hearing the drums and bass live.  I get visions of performing, sketch those ideas, and work with designers to make them come alive. Some of my favorite custom pieces have been created by  Zaldy, Asher Levine, Franc Fernandez and Brian Lichtenberg; Jewelry and accessories by Goddollars, Gregory Alexander, Zana Bayne, Willa Wirth and Alex + Chloe.  I have also had the pleasure to work with personal stylists Stephen Candelino, Brett Baily, and Sah D’Simone.  Calvin Klein, Levi’s, Dior Homme and, most recently, Petrou/Man, are friends of Dangerous Muse and have contributed special pieces for appearances and performances. Collaborating with friends is very important to me.  When I’m on stage, wearing a part of them, I feel like they are there performing with me.

Dream duet? Karen O

If you could live in any era, when would it be?
No time like the present my friend.

If you were reborn as an animal, what would you be?
A raccoon. Actually, that’s just the first animal that came to mind. I have major respect for animals. I enjoy their intuition/silence.  They don’t get caught up in bullshit.

What’s the last book you read?
Infinite Jest. It was a chamomile bath for my poison-ivy mind.

What’s the last music video you loved? I’m gonna go with Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun on this one.  90s apocalypto meets suburban American archetype distortion.

If you weren’t a singer, you’d be a…

I’d be an artist/musician/performer in some other capacity.  Before starting Dangerous Muse, I made giant plaster-and-wire sculptures and threw ceramic pots.  I started making art at four and playing the piano at seven so I am as much of a visual artist as I am a musician.

Favorite shops and designers in NYC? One of the only stores I actually enjoy in New York, at the moment, is BESS, located in the former Keith Haring Pop Shop, in SoHo.  Besides previously mentioned designers, I need a Givenchy scenario in my life. Some other favorites are Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, and Yoghi Yamamoto.

Favorite emerging musicians? My little bro. He plays guitar.

What’s up next for Dangerous Muse? We are planning performances in California for the end of summer and early Fall.  Go to and sign up for our mailing list for more info. Find us on twitter .

In New York City, Andy Warhol-themed parties are basically like knock-off designer bags. (See: cheap, ubiquitous, nothing like the real thing,cringe-worthy, etc…) Nonetheless, DJ/publicist extraordinaire Matt Kays and I crawled out of our Sunday hangovers and trekked it to West Village’s (le) Poisson Rouge last night to support our rock star pal, Mike Furey, the foxy frontman of electro-pop outfit Dangerous Muse, who were the headliners at “The Warhol Experience: An Evening of Art, Film, Fashion and Rock ‘n’ Roll.”

En route, Matt and I cut through Washington Square Park where we were greeted with the super buzz-killing NO SMOKING signs. New York circa Warhol’s days this was not.

But then we entered another world in the dark basement of LPR: A sea of goth kids rocking flashing devil horns and losing their shit; projections of Andy Warhol Factory videos; and a tribal band performance complete with a topless chick and a python-wielding dancer. Yes, seriously. And suddenly we too were wearing flashing devil horns, and very, very entertained — swooning over the shirtless, massively-muscled tribal drummer with the mohawk and staring in fascination at the teeny-weeny shirtless boy working some Gaga-esque heel-less creations.

Dangerous Muse closed the evening, and quite frankly, killed it. Furey served his best David Bowie-y theatrical swagger while clad in what I can only describe as a black-and-white checkered, masked onesie. Sure, the Edie Sedgwick projections were mildly depressing, but the evening was totally what goth glam-rock dreams are made of. We are happy to report that the crazy, freaky spirit of New York City was alive and well, and Warhol himself may have even approved.
