I somehow stumbled across the web site for Hazmat Modine a while ago. [Warning: if you’re not using FlashBlock, and if your sound volume is nonzero, this page will play music at you.] I’ve been back a few times since, and last night I decided it was time to order their CD. The music’s too much fun not to buy a copy.
Go to the bottom of this page and check out the rocktastic black and white Russian live telecast, complete with oh so “hip” English-speaking leather jacket clad host. His comparison of Hazmat to Frank Zappa is not entirely wide of the mark, though you’d have to throw in at least equal parts of Gershwin, klezmer, and Redbone, plus others. And that’s without the Tuvan throat singers.
