Last week was South by Southwest time again, reminding me again that I wish I had more time to seek out cool/weird new music. Not to mention a few grand for travel, accommodations and a platinum badge, plus a few more for show access bribes… Thanks to the crew over at the AVclub and Decider I’ve been able to live vicariously through their reporters.
Now I’m a former band geek, I played Trombone and loved it. I still love it, and I wish I could find a band to play in. Sadly, it’s just that most of the bands in my hometown that I could play in with the amount of free time that I generally have all seem to meet early Saturday mornings… and that dog won’t hunt Monsignor!
This week during some of the SXSW wrapups I was introduced to a bunch of great new bands as well as bands that were simply new to me. I also got one extremely unexpected musical introduction, the glorious band known as Futomomo Satisfaction. They can be summed up as: Japanese women in bikinis play Trombone and sing. I really don’t feel that I need to elaborate more, so please. Enjoy:
