Quasar Wut-Wut

Quasar Wut-Wut have been around and making music since '95, but I only got on board with them upon the release of their latest (and possibly greatest) release Taro Sound. The self-proclaimed third best band in Chicago have a bit of a sense of humor about their musical careers, from coordinating silly outfits for live performaces to their lyrics and write-ups on their website. As far as the music, well I like it. Quite a bit. My favorite comparisons include Tom Waits on crystal meth, Frank Zappa hosting the Muppet Show, compelling & strange like an onion loaf. Mostly QW-W get extra credit for their odd instrumentation & crunchy art pop, the obvious draw for the local scene obsessed with all that is Jeff Tweedy.
Quasar Wut-Wut has taken the spoils of their latest release to build themselves their own recording studio and get back to work, this time scoring a comedy film called The General. My advice is to take this with a grain of salt til we can actually get some kind of outside verification. Jokesters.
