What I Heard This Morning: BATTLEHOOCH

So, admittedly, there is an absolute shopping list of comparables and influences here, (most notably Mark Mothersbaugh, Captain Beefheart, David Bryne, James Chance & The Contortions), but San Francisco's BATTLEHOOCH have an exuberant immediacy and somewhat off-the-wall appeal that I find endearing. Bypassing bars, clubs and venues, BATTLEHOOCH takes their show to the SF streets, treating any passerby to their brand of chaos.

Their self-released debut, Pieceshow, will be available on June 16th. It's available for pre-order on their website.

BATTLEHOOCH: "The Special Place"

I'm intrigued.

EDIT: The rather obvious typo was brought to my attention. The album is entitled Piecechow, (as you can see by the very large and easily read album cover) and not Pieceshow as I typed. Apologies.
