The best kept secret in music


"Emergenza Music Festival"

Apperently the weirdos were coming out of the woodwork in Albany this weekend. I met this squirrely bunch of dudes a few days prior to the show and after talking for about a half hour about their music, I still had no idea what to expect. I have always had a real soft spot for bands who think way outside the box. And the further the better. But the problem with most experimental bands is that so many of them lose sight of what it is they are trying to do…namely make music that’s appealing to the ears. There is a fine line between eccentric brilliance and annoying random noise bands, and The Moby Strip showed that they can navigate these troubled and murky waters with a kind of sheepish confidence. What really sets this 6 piece apart from most other experimental indie bands is the addition of their percussionist. Straying away from the afro-cuban standbys of most perc-kits, these guys incorporated a full set of chamber bells housed in a homemade resonant enclosure, alongside a djembe drum, and a blue-man-esque array of PVC pipes, cut to length, and played with a set of foam-rubber pads duct taped to a pair of flip flops. - Nick

Feeling a bit camera shy


From the mine fields of Cambodia, four little male fetuses were shipped over to the promise land, America, in jelly jars. After being sent to four Oneonta families by the Federal Fetus Replacement Agency (FFRA), and becoming legal citizens by birth, the four boys grew up with relatively normal childhoods.
Among the four included the talented, sensitive, yet extremely focused and determined Caesar. With enough facial hair to cover Texas three times over, and a guitar style meaner than a 32 oz. steak, he is a formidable match for any great guitar player. Then there was Etienne (spelled ATN on the streets), the coolest sex magnet to bless anyone's vision. As everyone knows, a good drummer is the most important part of a band. Etienne delivers quite a pleasurable wallop to his skins and everyone's eardrums. The third member in the group would be none other than Funk Tea, the Renaissance man, mastering school, sports, and music at the same time. This versatility carries over into his music, slapping out riffs dynamic enough to make you lose all control of your bowels. To finish it off, there's Gurobert, the balding Indian jackass with a shameless love for rubbing his ass on his family's possessions. In his past life, Gurobert was an accordion player who played on various Persian Gulf tour boats..................................................and now he plays guitar. This three Caucasian, one Asian combo has come to be known as The Moby Strip.
