Show Me The Body 'Dog Whistle' LP
SHOW ME THE BODY was formed in New York City in 2009. The band spent several years playing clubs and bars. None of their friends could attend the shows due to age restrictions. Eventually SMTB penetrated the all ages DIY and punk scenes in NY and the northeast. This record was heavily influenced by the band’s trip to Auschwitz a few years ago. For instance - the first track is about an orchestra in a concentration camp - 'I am a doll upon a string / They pull it I have to sing / So no work will set me free'. They reference a 'shoe room' in the music video which is where the Nazi's threw all of the belongings of those they were killing in the gas chambers. The album title, 'Dog Whistle' is a nod at the current state of the world.
