Idiot Flesh - Fancy

I wanted to make my first contribution here a good one, so I searched the web for something interesting and came upon this little gem. You see, there's these two guys - Nils and Dan - who are in a band called Sleepytime Gorilla Museum. Before that, they were in Idiot Flesh. Sleepytime Gorilla Museum - according to an interview with Nils I found on youtube - was an attempt to combine classical music's focus on melody with industrial music's focus on noise and sound. Idiot Flesh's sound is a slightly more coherent/accessible version of this with an ounce of Mr. Bungle-esque humor mixed in. Fancy is dark, humorous, and absurd and promises to delight. If Lovage is music to make love to your old lady by, Idiot Flesh is music to make love to a deranged, drunk clown from your local circus by.
