Dr. Blum playing and singing a song from 1937 on his Italian accordion
“To start: This was the most fun I’ve had at a show in a long time. Like, hip shaking fist-pumping “Oh-my-God! This-is-amazing!” kind of fun. Like, standing-in-front-of-the-speakers ears-be-damned kind of fun.
…According to the press (myself included) the band does “revolution rock,” which is a vauge term, but descriptive of the band’s overall message and aesthetic. Musically, they borrow from The Clash (in singer Miles Solay) and Rage Against the Machine (in guitarist Leo Mintek). There was also hints of Chicago riot-punk-jazzsters Blue Meanies, which is a obscure hipster reference if there ever was one, but, what can you do?”
