Strung Like a Horse
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, HERE IS THE STORY OF STRUNG LIKE A HORSE. SOMETIME IN 1983 A JUNKYARD ROCKET SHAPED SPERM CRASH-LANDED INTO A 1965 CADILLAC ELDORADO SHAPED EGG (CONVERTIBLE OF COURSE) AND NINE MONTHS LATER, GIVE OR TAKE, CLAY MASELLE HORSE-KICKED HIS WAY INTO A WORLD TO WHICH HE WOULD NEVER BELONG. IN TIME HE DISCOVERED HE WAS NOT ALONE. THERE WERE OTHER HILLBILLY MISFITS LIVING UNDERCOVER ALL AROUND HIM. A BORN LEADER, HE GOT FOUR OF THEM ARRESTED FOR STEALING YET ANOTHER CADILLAC–A HEARSE THIS TIME–AND THEY BECAME AN ISEPARABLE UNIT. SEEING AS HOW THEY WEREN’T EMPLOYABLE THEY TURNED TO THE ONLY THING ALL OF THEM WERE ACRUALLY GOOD AT… PICKIN’
SEVERAL YEARS AND MANY THOUSANDS OF MILES LATER THE STRUNG LIKE A HORSE OUTFIT, NOW A WELL-OILED MACHINE, GALLOPS INTO (YOUR TOWN). DON’T MISS THEIR SIGNATURE GYPSY GRASS SOUND AND FIERY HOT HIGH-ENERGY STAGE SHOW. MOONSHINE IS OPTIONAL BUT RECOMMENDED. THESE JUNKYARD DOGS BRING “HONEST, PLAYFUL, HEADBANGINGLY INTERACTIVE FUN” TO ANY VENUE THEIR ROCKET CRASHES.

To understand Bella’s Bartok, imagine what you would get if Salvador Dali and Toulouse Lautrec were fronting the Moulin Rouge’s house band, and you have the exuberant spectacle that is Bella’s Bartok. Described as “about as much fun as you can have with your pants on” (Dan Wolovick, Two Way Monologues), this 6-piece powerhouse melds Bohemian Klezmer Punk with pop sensibilities into an eminently danceable party. The diversity of musicians that make up Bella’s Bartok, combined with their boundless energy on stage, has been known to break a dancefloor, or two (or three, but who’s counting?). Their sound moves way beyond labels, pushing the envelope towards the darker side of Eastern European music, referencing vaudeville and 20th century eclecticism.
