Climbing out of the ashes of Puerto Muerto is the new project Man is Man, featuring Christa Meyer. The band name was inspired by the Bertolt Brecht drama Mann ist Mann the play is about the transformation of a civilian man into a war machine. Love is war, at least for the formerly married members of Puerto Muerto, a band which started in the backwoods of Missouri and ended in 2010 in the asphalt jungle of Chicago, so it made sense to call Christa’s new project Man is Man. Puerto Muerto’s last album was the critically acclaimed, raucous and melancholy swan song “Drumming For Pistols“. Rich, tight and decadent as fine beluga caviar on a tiny sliver of toast, Man is Man weaves melody and narrative into one organism. Capturing the souls of both the lost and the delusional within her intricately wound songs, Christa explores the interplay of melody and drama, rhythm and death, revolution and defeat with an unblinking eye. Live, this dichotomy is expressed through the instrumentation of Man is Man. Christa bangs on her autoharp, unrelenting and artless as a punk rock diva and she is accompanied by the warm tones of Ben Kulp’s cello which serves to mellow and sweeten the pot. Unafraid of the future, Man is Man is preparing to take on the world with its tiny revolution.
