After his last world tour with Louis XIV in the Spring of 2009, frontman and producer Jason Hill converted an isolated 100 year old house in the Hollywood Hills into a recording studio named Ulysses. Brimming with instruments and vintage equipment such as tape machines, plate reverbs (and a fireplace), he quickly began writing songs. Late night recording parties ensued, friends started dropping in more frequently and a grand experiment was born. By the winter of 2012 the full album, "The Synthetic Love of Emotional Engineering", was finished and a band name was dubbed VICKY CRYER and proved to be a star studded affair of friends featuring Dominic Howard (drums, Muse), Mark Stoermer (bass, The Killers), Nick Fyffe (bass, Jamiroquai), Dave Elitch ( drums, Mars Volta), Jeff Kite (keyboards, Beat Club, Julian Casablancas), Alex Carapetis and even an appearance from New York Dolls icon David Johanssen.
