Paranoid - Undercover Presents

Undercover Presents is a quarterly project that selects influential albums from the rock and roll lexicon for a diverse assortment of Bay Area musicians to put their spin on it, in both a recorded studio album and a live performance. Past tributes have been the Pixies’ Doolittle and The Velvet Underground & Nico. This time around, guest curator Cornelius Boots has chosen an eclectic group of 50 musicians to reinterpret Balck Sabbath’s 1970 magnum opus Paranoid at the Independent in its entirety with a marching band, a gamelon ensemble, straight-forward rock and roll, and more.

Attendees will go home with a CD recorded by the musicians at Faultline Studios. KALX 90.7 FM will continue to air previews of the album all day.

Here is the line-up:
Extra Action Marching Band – War Pigs
Uriah Duffy + The Memorials (ft. Thomas Pridgen frmr drummer for The Mars Volta) + Jeremy Von Epp of BlackGates) – Paranoid
Novilunio – Planet Caravan
Charming Hostess – Iron Man
