Peek-A-Boo is an multinational musical multimedia project founded by Robert Stainton and DC Young.

Billed as "the men and women of turning your brain into mush via re-purposed obscure 80's and 90's songs" and "DEVO meets The Ren and Stimpy Show", the project showcases a live show with lighting effects, screens showing video, and more.


Overview Edit

Each concert begins with Peek-A-Boo playing covers of several songs from the 80's and 90's against a 12-foot, rear-projected acrylic panel which presents synchronized video. For several songs, members of the project interact with the visuals, such as being kicked down by a giant pirate at the end of "Peek-a-Boo!", dancing along with the children onscreen during "Yo, Little Brother", or attacking arrogant and ignorant people with laser guns during "Through Being Cool". After the R.P. panel is removed it reveals the band performing on a turntable in front of a 12-foot portrait of J. R. "Bob" Dobbs (the figurehead of the Church of the SubGenius, a parody religion that satirizes better known belief systems) made of kelvar, glass fiber, hemp, and an extremely hard plastic material used in police riot shields. The portrait is surrounded by VL3000 Spot, VL3500 Wash, VLX Wash, VLX3 Wash & Showline SL NITRO 510C luminaires and Upstar P240WT 24-inch LED 1080p television sets (displaying visuals) mounted on 12-foot tall steel poles. Robert and DC lead the project, and they and the other members of the project play the music to backing tracks contained in the videos (played on MiniDVD discs), while some portions of the backing tracks (such as click tracks) played from Robert and DC's iPods (Robert's being a iPod Touch and DC's being a iPod Nano) either over the venue's PA system or line array speakers mounted on steel poles in case the venue does not have a PA system.

Labels Edit

A week after the project issued it's first single and the project's theme song for live performances, a cover of DEVO's "Peek-A-Boo!", the project signed with L.I.E.S. for North America, Unidisc Music for South America and Scotland, Hidden Shoal Recordings for Australia and New Zealand, Melodiya for the Russian Federation, and BBC Worldwide for the United Kingdom, Europe, and Asia.
