Coconuts and half-banana bassists are way cool

Posted By on Fri, May 25, 2007 at 11:18 AM

Seattle delinquents from the Charming Snakes and Unnatural Helpers never resist arrests that lead to “Party Jail” in their collaborative effort as Coconut Coolouts. You want jerky rock 'n' roll irreverence? You need more “Chocolate Money” in your account? Dude, so do we. We also need more bassists who are half-banana, which the Coolouts deliver. Therefore we suggest get thee to the Hemlock tonight for the Coolouts show of snotty attitude and bullshit humor that promises good times for the low-brow types (please note the CC’s description of their recording process: “All fourteen tracks were recorded in less time than it took Emerson, Lake & Palmer to mic their tuning fork.”). Totally! Tuning forks are only cool at Matmos shows. --Jennifer Maerz

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
