More Tales From the Mohammedan Menace

Sorry, I couldn't resist.



Seriously, that's "Just You Wait," from The Trolleyvox Present the Karaoke Meltdowns, by The Trolleyvox, yet another fab new band that I somehow have managed to miss for the last ten years. In any case, it's as spiffy a piece of neo-New Wave power pop as I've heard lately; the fact that it's also a large erect middle finger to the current administration is, for me anyway, merely the icing on the cake.

Great song, potent and distrubing video. I pity the poor girl, wondering how much of those images she actually had to watch!

The song itself reminds me of my beloved Velocity Girl, except these guys rock harder.....

Hmmm..

I had one of their discs and it was kinda droney psych ala Mazzy Star.

Hey Steve,

The Trolleyvox are currently my favorite band. Andrew Chalfen is an amazing guitar player and a super nice guy to boot.

My friends Milton and the Devils Party have played with the Trolleyvox a couple of times, so I think they might be Philly area. They also have a terrific song on one of the NotLame compilations.

Hey -- this is cool.

I just got an e-mail from the publicist who handles Trolleyvox.
(An old friend, actually, but I didn't know he was doing their PR).

Anyway, he saw the post and he's sending me their new album.

It's a double -half electric, half acoustic. Could be a hot one...
