Since March 2009: Victory Revolt!

 bay street hustler  Victory Revolt is Trish and Christoph

Trish and Christoph is a musical duo that plays on a non regular basis on the North Shore of Staten Island and occasionally in other parts of New York City or the rest of the world for that matter.

In their performances, Victory Revolt incorporates film and photo and addresses local problems and issues such as urban underdevlopment, uncompetitive nightlife and feral turkeys.

Performances by Victory Revolt are called the North Show. The North Show again is subdivided into individual episodes.

At times, Victory Revolt is joined by special guests and performers, thus becoming the Staten Island Freak Corps.

By the way, the band name Victory Revolt was selected by our dedicated groupies in an online poll. find out more

We do not actually hope, and we don't realistically anticipate, that the North Shore is going to be the next Williamsburg*, though many folks says so. We're still divided by Water and a pretty unattractive ferry schedule. Plus, DOT and City employees are doing their best by yelling at tourists and visitors:  "Yoho, where you going? Get back on the boat, there's nothing here!" (These were the actual words and sadly, they are not all false)

However, thanks to the complete absence of any cultural life and social meeting points our beloved north shore could develop in a very unique manner, unspoiled by outside factors from the big city, of which it technically is part of.

So we're taking over the roll of the exploring scientist who looks through his magnifying glasses at a still untouched urban ecosystem. There is pristine beauty and ugliness to be discovered. Our logbooks are filled with song verses and the test results are published through choruses on MP3 and wav files.

MOST instruments that we play have been purchased in local thrift stores or simply been picked up from a north shore street corner. We record at home with low- and some higher end digital and analog equipment.

Not all 4 Volumes are available yet. But we already play about 11 of the North Shore songs live!

*for those that are not familiar with New York's boroughs and neighborhoods: Williamsburg is a neighborhood in Brooklyn where many artist and trend setting young people have moved  since the early nineties. Streets became safe, rents got up and artists got fucked, ... same ol' story.



Oh, and,

Victory Boulevard  Victory Boulevard is one of the longest streets on Staten Island, spanning over 10 miles all the way from North Shore at Bay Street (the area named p.o.s.i.t.i.v.e. [part of Staten Island that is very ethnic] by ETG's open mic MC Mark Davis) to more unknown parts of the Island in the center west. Its northern part is the lifeline of numerous immigrant communities and ethnic food stores from Mexico, various African countries, Sri Lanka, the Caribbean, to name just a few. Great reason to go out and support thy neighborhood!
