Biografie

The Plot to Blow Up the Eiffel Tower was a four-piece punk band from San Diego, California, that formed in 2001.

On their earlier work, their music incorporated elements of punk rock in a jazz-oriented improvisational and constructional sequence, whilst later works incorporated a more noise and lo-fi approach. Their name is taken from the book Lipstick Traces: A Secret History of the Twentieth Century by Greil Marcus.

The band was known for their confrontational live shows. While performing on their 2005 tour with The Blood Brothers and Big Business, each member wore a red armband with „PLOT“ written in a white circle, intentionally mimicking the armbands worn by members of the Nazi Party. However, none of the band had National Socialist beliefs, as several members of the band were of Jewish descent. The armbands were in keeping with thematic/aesthetic elements associated with the 3rd Reich that was prevalent on their album Love in the Fascist Brothel.

Live shows often included „everything from smashing the stage, molesting the microphone to random acts of homo-erotic behavior.“ Welchez often walked into the crowd to spit on, kiss, touch or undress members of the audience, especially men, to which some people took offense. At one stop on their final tour, Brandon even insisted on half of the audience joining the band on-stage during „SLC Hunks“ and encouraged them to „brutalize“ the band.
