As wild admirers of Johnny Cash, Karl Marx, and Pee Wee Herman, the ex-Miami and now Oakland-based outfit Kreamy 'Lectric Santa makes a skuzzy, avant-garde sound that could be called "kinder commune rockabilly." But that might be short-selling a crew that's got as many facets as an LSD-25 trip in outer space. Thankfully in this age of Internet accessibility, you needn't waste time listening to some third-rate music writer struggling with the KLS conundrum. Just go here and have that mind excursion right now.
As described in an official KLS memo, you should expect: "Musique
concrete, psychedelic, post-punk, free jazz, free country, bubblegum,
no wave, death metal, bluegrass, and other assorted crap." Sounds good?

Well, you should hear it live. But alas, there are no Dade-area shows
currently scheduled. Although, keep peeped to the band's MySpace because, if there's any balance to the universe, KLS will return home to Churchill's before the next lunar eclipse.
