Captain of Multi-Instrumentalism

Caterwauling like a canoe filled with hammers dragged down an alley, wrapped in sheet metal, barbed wire, and houndstooth…emerging from the dark sea.

Mister December

Handsome Devil

A handsome heartbreaker with an unhealthy dose of delusions of grandeur while serving up a cup of how do you do. A string breaker, a foot stomper, a throat full of gravel and mouthful of bees… Every time you dream you take a piece of the world with you.

Bottom Dweller

Up from the depths of the murkiest seas rises the nethermost tentacles of bottom heavy grooves. Honeypants delivers the spirit up from the silt and to the sky to resuscitate your vital force and cast out the demons.

Buskits & Tea Kettles

From out of the salty air an angel, nay, a devil emerges so powerful all the forces of rhythm are at his command. The German hammers and batters a booming assault to lambaste your wretched soul.
