Brooklyn, N.Y.’s gothic-country-gypsy-punkers O’Death are bringing a taste of their raucous bare-chested live set to the Record Exchange on Tuesday, June 23, at 4 p.m. The quintet will haul their fiddle, banjo and drum chains into the RX before heading to the Knitting Factory to open for Les Claypool.
For those unsure what, exactly, a “gothic-country-gypsy-punk” band might sound like, check out an excerpt from an interview lead singer Greg Jamie gave on Stereogum:
"What sound or noise do you love?
A cat getting its eyes ripped out while a banjo is being tuned.
What sound or noise do you hate?
The sound of a rented tuxedo."
And that pretty much sums up their music. In the best of ways, of course.
