Pylon Reenactment Society
Pylon Reenactment Society is fronted by former Pylon front woman Vanessa Briscoe Hay whose inimitable vocal textures and phrasing defined the band’s sound for most listeners. Pylon is considered to be one of the most influential bands at the beginnings of what would become known as the “Athens GA music scene.” 30 years ago Pylon along with The B-52’s and R.E.M. were heavily featured in the original feature documentary "Athens GA: Inside/Out.” Formed in 2014 PRS is rounded out by Jason NeSmith (Casper & The Cookies) on guitar Kay Stanton (Casper & The Cookies) on bass guitar and backing vocals Damon Denton (Big Atomic) on keyboards and Joe Rowe (The Glands) on drums. In fall of 2017 PRS released a 6-song EP "Part Time Punks Session" on Chunklet Industries to rave reviews! An audiophile quality vinyl single of original songs titled Messenger/Cliff Notes was recently released on the Chunklet Industries Bandcamp site and distributed by Revolver USA. The initial pressings sold out and it has entered its second repressing. A special Ltd.”tour edition” is available at live shows along with a T shirt designed by original Pylon bassist Michael Lachowski. 2019 plans include writing and recording a full length album.
