Hailing from an H Class planet far across the cosmic
highways, Bênní makes “hi-NRG New Age” music. A
pivotal member of bands Wizzard Sleeve / Gary Wrong
Group, Heavy Lids, Roman Gabriel Todd’s Beast Rising
Up Out Of The Sea, and many more, Bênní was born
from Benny Divine’s personal need for new music to
listen to while driving his space craft long distances. Tired
of Van Halen’s 5150 and Zebra’s self-titled album on his
journeys, he began creating sci-fi landscapes and ethereal
soundtracks of his own. Often times primitive, the music
can go from Vangelis to John Carpenter, to ’80s dungeon
electro band Warning and into vintage arcade game circuitry
within the blink of an eye.
“The thing to me that has always kinda set the Memphis /
New Orleans punk scenes apart from other places is that
music and musicianship always outweighs high concept
or the typical sneering “fuck you” attitude of other places.
Benny Divine is a musician with a capitol M and its no
accident that within a year of his coming to New Orleans
(from less than an hour up the Gulf), he began to influence
the local landscape as much as any of us who had been
here and doing it for decades. Benny is special, especially
for a young dude. He never overplays; he always listens;
he’s funky as a church lady; and his memory for parts
and complicated song structure is unmatched in anyone I
have ever worked with.... Plus he’s chill as fuck. There is
a reason that he is in almost every good band in the entire
city right now. So yeah... if any of you Memphis bitches
get funny ideas about stealing him away from us, there will
be a straight-up lazy drunken army riding up the river to
forcibly take him back.”
