This band took me completely surprise at this years North By Northeast Music Festival in Toronto this past summer. These cats came out looking like they were completely out of their minds! Weird clowns, back-up singers dressed as nuns, a female drummer who had no drum seat and stood as she played and sang. And the guitar players looked absolutely strange with their bizarre ant eater type face masks that they wore. This iswhy the vocals sound so out of it - they sound like they are singing into a tin can.
Crazy, wacked out for sure - but boy did they entertain. Don't ask me what any of it actually means, if anything.
This band for me was the most entertaining, and frankly disturbing acts I saw all year.
Happy 60th Birthday Nick Cave!
