Biography

A junkyard band with a heart of dirt, smoke, and wires; the Curious Mystery blends Sixties-style psychedelia with American country-blues and garage experimentalism . Cool night air, slow burning heaviness, impregnation by blackberry, Captain Beefheart, late night crawlers, native fowl, dinner, river blindness; these are some of the things the Curious Mystery bides its time thinking about. They began in 2005 in Seattle where Shana Cleveland, a Midwestern daughter of Blues and Country rock musicians met Nicolas Gonzalez; an experimental instrumentalist from Texas enamored with Polvo, Morricone, and Eastern drones. Today the band features Nicolas on guitar, vocals, and homemade instruments; Shana on vocals, guitar, and autoharp; Adam Kozie on drums; and Johnny Goss on the bass guitar. In 2008 they met up with Calvin Johnson and recorded "Rotting Slowly" (KLP 206). The stellar new full length album "We Creeling"(KLP 225), recording with Karl Blau, will be released March by K Records in March 8th.
