Brown Whörnet back on the crawfish belt

BROWN WHöRNET is playing in Houston, New Orleans and Austin May 23-30th 2014.  We’re playing two shows with the fantastic and unique double-guitar-blade-weilding-poetic-avant-swamp rockers CHURCHWOOD and once with Flying Balalaika Brothers and OMGWTFBBQ.  We don’t play all that often but when we do we freakin’ tear shit up!  Here is a nice little featurette:

BROWN WHöRNET

BROWN WHöRNET

Bizarre, frenetic, sometimes offensive, and always amazing, experimental rock collective Brown Whörnet has survived as long as it has on sheer grit and immense talent. The Austin eightpiece rocks out hardcore as effectively as they dismantle jazz, funk, klezmer, or anything else they get their eight sets of grubby hands on. The thinking man’s freakout session, their music leans as hard on Sun Ra as it does on Beefheart, as much Zappa as Minutemen. Chaos has ruled since their first show in 1993, and though the lineup has undergone changes over the course of the band’s decade-plus history, the sense of anything-goes and God-what’s-next has never left them. Currently composed of players with the monikers of Stin-G, RUNPMS, XSP, JimE, and Gaseous C, membership has evolved and revolved, including the likes of Juicy, AUNT J, MC Squeak, Chef Poonstick, Wolff, J, Oscar, and McKinney. Somewhere in there is Peter Stopschinski, composer, keyboardist, and a driving force behind this band and frequent collaborator with Golden Arm Trio’s Graham Reynolds. – Christopher Hess
