This news is way old but I just ran across it while catching up on Psychotica‘s history so I could talk with Gardner Goldsmith about them and the song Modern Utopia from the their 1999 album (delayed release of 2003), Pandemic. I had submitted the song for a “song vs song” podcast that Gard is doing to breakup the normal flow of his show Liberty Conspiracy which discusses current topics from a pro-liberty perspective. It seems that Pat Briggs and Paul “ENA” Kostabi reunited in 2008, rereleased Pandemic on Toxic Shock Records and are working on a new album rumored to be released in 2009 with a tour to follow. If the past is any indicator however don’t expect it till 2010 at the least.
Should be interesting to hear how they sound after a decade away from Psychotica.
Even though I purchased Pandemic from Ena back in 2003 through his Art Monkey Records I repurchased it through Toxic Shock Records to show support for their new venture and I recommend all the Psychotica fans out there to do the same if they haven’t already.
Turns out that Enrique Tiru Velez and Paul “Ena” Kostabi did an acoustic show in Sicily in April 2009 at foundation Mazullo in Taormina. It’s available for download at iTunes, Amazon and Napster. It’s just called “Psychotica Acoustic.” Footage of the event below.
