About Me

In lieu of cold statistics, nationwide bamboozlement and the usual mind numbing malaise, Sean Yseult (White Zombie), vocalist Von Hesseling, guitarist Donna She Wolf (Cycle Sluts From Hell), and drummer Dustin Crops offer up Star & Dagger: A subwoofer's cauldron forged by functional alcoholism, pharmaceutical voyage and junk drawer hallucinogens, steeped under a heavy contraband haze that hangs low enough to embrace the Almighty Downtrodden so they can revel in it.

Photos from Seans's Interview with Brandon Wetherbee Live from Pete's Candy Store

In spite of the oppressively brutal heat, a fun time was had by all during the You, Me, Them Everybody podcast "Live from Pete's Candy Store" in Brooklyn. Engagingly witty host Brandon Wetherbee conducted an amusing yet engrossing interview with Sean inside of what looked to have once been an old train car or diner. Funny man Myq Kaplan followed Sean and did some brief stand up then some sit down. All of it, uproariously funny. The whole show was intoxicating enough and Pete's Candy Store's lovingly crafted signature cocktails made the entire event even that more amazing. Incredibly enjoyable evening on so many fronts. 


Sean and Donna arrive at Pete's Candy Store. Fuck the 102° weather.
Hilarious comedian Myq Kaplan was the following guest. What a treat!

2011 S & D Happenings

May: Continuing on from the original 2010 sessions at Hicksville Trailer Palace Studios, Star & Dagger recorded 5 more songs this year at Rancho De La Luna, Joshua Tree for the upcoming album "Tomorrowland Blues" produced by Dave Catching and Ethan Allen. Lots of friends, feasting, playing and listening in the desert. Mixing will commence in Los Angeles late July.

June: Star & Dagger took the stage for their New Orleans debut at One Eyed Jacks opening for Eagles Of Death Metal who blew the roof off, along with Gnarltones and Gary Wertz. The evening was made even more momentous by the fact it was Dave Catchings Big 5-0.
Incredible night of extreme unparalleled revelry that cannot be conveyed within the confines of a blogosphere. Other great events that week- Masters Of Reality, The Gates Of Slumber and Orange Goblin at OEJ all put on amazing shows. It's always great to be in NOLA but this was definitely THE week to be there.
