The Web / Kill City
The Web - 1 single + EP Kill City - 1 single
Now available as 13 Song CD! [First pressing 2019 by Mutant Prophet Productions] THE WEB was one of America’s first Death Rock bands, as described by UK journalist/author Mick Mercer. Based in Los Angeles, their 45” single “Walk on Glass” hit the Top 10 on John Peel’s BBC Radio show in the mid-'80s. They also released a 7-song EP as a Limited Edition promo and a 3-song 45" under the name Kill City in the 1990's.
In the late 1980’s/early 1990’s, remaining founding members Andi Hayes, lead vocals, and T.A. Black, lead guitar, renamed the band Kill City, featuring an ever-fluctuating new rhythm section line-up. They released a 45” colored vinyl single on the Dionysus Records label, “Secret Smile” backed by “Cancer of the Mind” and “Begging for More.” At that point, bass player Johann Schumann had gone to England to tour as a temporary fill-in with Christian Death, who shared The Web’s practice studio. It was during this period that T.A. and Andi opened the infamous Goth afterhours club known as “The Seance” on Highland Avenue in Hollywood, featuring visits from such diverse luminaries as Nick Cave and El Duce of the Mentors, even renting the club out to Guns ‘N Roses for a show. The Web/Kill City played their last show together in 1993. Singer Andi Hayes continued on in a solo career, putting together 3 CDs and several videos of original music in a vegan psychedelic/garage/goth vein.
Eyeballs in the Ocean
11 songs: Demented Circus Music with cathedral goth organs, psychedelic ethereal layered keyboards, themes of mutant prophecy and deep, strong female vocals.
EYEBALLS IN THE OCEAN is the first solo project of Andi Hayes, former lead singer of L.A.-based goth/hard rock bands The Web and Kill City. Lyrical topics range from the disturbing (sonar blasting in the ocean, space junk and the horrors of modern science) to the disturbed (hallucinations and mental escapism). Note: The deep sea creatures pictured are labeled "Property of U.S. Navy" only because the Navy believes it owns the ocean.
REVIEWS OF EYEBALLS IN THE OCEAN:
"The quality is fantastic...Fascinating, freaky, and fun, like a trip through a great haunted house. This is a real concept album...one of those artists that has a unique image and fully formed vision to promote; This is exactly the kind of music that needs to be given exposure to a mass audience, especially in this day and age. There is just nothing even close to this kind of stuff out there."-Skepticus
"Dear Andi Hayes, I came home tonight to find the CD in my letterbox. Thank you so much, it truly is a beautiful thing (and so well-packaged).
I love the dark, swirling carnival organs and the whimsical rhythms. Your voice has such a rich timbre to it (something quite rare in a lot of modern music). Great lyrics too. I'm sure the CD will provide me with hours of twisted delight.
Thank you again. Kind Regards, [J. - New Zealand]"
"First off, the album is absolutely STELLAR. Each song flows into the next quite superbly, from Pink Floyd-esque soundscapes to uber-goth Cathedral Rock; the vocals drift with soul..."-Anoremix
"I received your CD, it is spectacular and you are a genius. The words you included really add so much more meaning to the music I really have come to appreciate. You are truly gifted. I have been playing your CD in my car, for my friends, for my family and encouraging them to check you out on CDBaby... Thank you again, let me know if there is ANYTHING I can do to support you and your music. Sincerely and awe-struck,"-Erinn/myspace comment

Take heed: “For the fate of the sons of men and the fate of beasts is the same: as one dies, so dies the other; and they all have but one spirit, so that there is no superiority of man over the beast: for all is vanity.”
