Invaders from Sears

 

Invaders from Sears was originally conceived in 1986 when future artist-known-as-Bobby-Bunny bought a then state-of-the-art sampler and grabbed fellow cult movie fan and genius weirdo Adam "Ped Xing" from Thalidomide and the One-Armed Mongoloids and started a side project as "a PIL-like synth duo". Taking their name from a misread movie theater marquee, the pair produced only three songs, but Bob, having been been turned down from joining Adam's band then holed himself away in his aunts basement with the 3 1/2 track portastudio Adam got 3rd hand from Peter Frampton and churned out 2 full length solo albums, an ep and a rarities/greatest hits collection, all to be released on his 1980s boutique cassette label, odi, and picked up on some vinyl and tape compilations by famed Connecticut punk label TPOS.

 

After a few shows at their alma mater SUNY Purchase, fellow art students Elisa Flynn and Jeffre Dene joined in, and The Vaders became an actual live act, opening for hardcore bands in and around New England in the late 80s, confusing the punks with their glam rock look and electronic sample-based, humor-tinged proto-industrial music. Winning praise from locals Sonic Youth and Moby, The trio landed some choice gigs and had their tunes on the radio in several countries. Bob & Elisa then started a side project called BunnyBrains and the Vaders took a hiatus.
