HUNX AND HIS PUNX: Hunx and His Punx might be the first ever "girl group" fronted by a flamboyant gay male whose dream in life is to sound like a girl. They have created a unique new sound they refer to as "Young Oldies," a mixture of 50s teenage rock ‘n’ roll, 60s girl groups and bubblegum pop. Hunx is that boy you just wanna kiss—maybe after sharing a triple scoop ice cream cone, then roller skating with the Shangri-Las and Redd Kross rotating on a never-ending loop. He’s the boy in that picture from your high school yearbook—the one you pasted sparkly red heart stickers all over, then taped inside your locker. He’s the boy you fantasize about because he always saves you from your broken heart. You’ve never met him—but you love him… because you know he believes in love.

TIMMY'S ORGANISM: an alter-ego of Human Eye frontman and Clone Defects mastermind Timmy Vulgar. Traversing the gap between the disjointed Helios Creed-inspired work of Human Eye’s skronky punk and more spacey, out there explorations, Timmy’s Organism is the next logical step in a family of art-damaged Michigan noise rock. Stripped down and raw, but no less than intense! Across a bunch of singles Timmy’s Organism have proven themselves the scorchingest purveyors of future garage psych, gobbling up influences as diverse as Eno-era Roxy, Crime, The Pagans, The Elevators, Wipers, George Brigman... 'Rise Of The Green Gorilla' is their first full-length and it’s a doozy, packed full of the kind of avant garage that scarred the early Pere Ubu wax but with a lot more string-kill and a touch of hip-shaking glam that’ll make you wanna check your brains at the door.

Hunx's buds SHANNON AND THE CLAMS open and Detroit's own CONSPIRACY OF OWLS follow.

The Crofoot presents this show at THE OLD MIAMI, 3930 Cass Ave, Detroit.
