A Particularly Vicious Rumor is New Orleans duo with Lady-O on vocals and piano and Kid Twist on the drums. Listed as a dark cabaret artist by wikipedia, APVR is simultaneously desperate and melodic. ***this next part is from us directly*** We're a drum and piano duet from the dirty south. We sound like a drum and a piano and a voice, filtered through the oblique racism and sexism of the nearly post-apocalyptic final days (we hope!) of the good ol' boy regime. We write songs that are love letters (those painful, honest kind) that we'll never send.
