"Get your gypsy punk on with ‘Make A Mark,’ the latest single from Boston’s Skinny Pigeons"

The story is familiar: three dudes from points elsewhere — in this case Boulder, Colorado; Erie, Pennsylvania; and Seattle, Washington — come to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music and end up forming a band. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t. But in most cases there’s some weird shit going on.

Skinny Pigeons are next in line, crafting what they dub “a fusion of noisy punk rock, gypsy jazz, and funk stylings.” They’ve only been a band for about a year, releasing a handful of singles since December, but this first track off a new, upcoming EP, titled “Make A Mark,” immediately caught our attention.

We won’t get into what it reminds us of, but we’ll say we’ve now listened to it three times and we’re hearing different sounds each time. It’s a lot to digest.

Still working on that hot first release.



Three birdbrained young rapscallions from across the United States congregate in Boston to form a fusion of noisy punk rock, gypsy jazz and funk stylings that could only be summed up by one phrase: Skinny Pigeons. This power trio combines the eccentric and eclectic songwriting of traveller and guitarist Joey Luna (Boulder, CO) with the rock-solid bass lines of Ben Henry (Erie, PA) and bombastic, lightning-speed drum parts written by Jeff Crenshaw (Seattle, WA). Born in the depths of the Berklee dormitories, the band incubated for several months before emerging from the eggshell with a wide assortment of songs and a hunger to spread their strain of avian flu far and wide. The Skinny Pigeons debut EP is set to be released in late 2013; Share it with dirty hands.
