After reading the last post about the band Shpongle and then watching the video I began to chuckle when I saw the chick with the mask and white wig; thoughts all started streaming back about a band I use to see in Boston from time to time named Upper Crust. With band members such as Jackie Kickassis, Count Bassie, Lord Bendover, and Duc D’istortion, how can you not love these guys?
Although the make up, wigs, and baroque schtick was pretty outlandish; these guys actually can play a pretty solid set of punkish rock and rock-a-billy style songs, always entertaining and always full of non-stop energy. It’s been years since I’ve seen them and I guess they do play from time to time. Although I’m no die hard fan perse, I felt compelled to mention Upper Crust for the hell of it.
