John Sinclair – ‘Mohawk’
“John Sinclair – renegade poet, scholar and cultural revolutionary…..an Archetype of the 1960’s art, music and literary synthesis, still kicking with both feet on his trajectory for cultural transformation. Mohawk features ten tracks from his book of verse: always know: a book of monk. Beatnik poems, great odes and personal reflections of the Be-Bop jazz persuasion, all flowering together.”

I want to pass on a message from Seth Faergolzia of Dufus…..


Seth Faergolzia (Dufus) from Rochester, New York here!!  I’m excited to announce that my stellar new project, MULTIBIRD, will be touring Europe in July.  I’ve been performing in Europe since 2001 when I first toured with Jeffrey Lewis and Cornershop.  Ever since then, I’ve come back at least once a year with one of my projects (Dufus, Forest Creature, Faergolzia, Heck Yup) and have performed at Green Man, End of the Road, Zappanale and Down By the River Festivals.  I’ve played shows with such greats as Adam Green, Dan Deacon, Animal Collective, Regina Spektor, and the YeahYeahYeahs.  I’ve toured over 20 countries and put out over 20 albums!  I’m just finishing up a project called #100songs, which is a songwriting & recording project released via subscription website.  We will be promoting this 4 album set and performing a “best of” from the #100songs project.
MULTIBIRD is an ensemble of four (acoustic and electric guitars, bass and drums) who I’ve been working with for over a year, developing new material, pulling up old favorites from my back catalogue, and even playing a few choice covers (Zelda, Burning Down the House, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Roll Bus Roll). If you have heard the music, then you know you will want to book us straight away before all dates fill.We are booking dates during the month of July.  We prefer professional music venues with sound support but very much enjoy playing art spaces, outdoor events and even house concerts as well.

I hope to hear back from you soon!!

Multibird is the brand new project by Seth Faergolzia. Seth is well known for subtly harmonic, experimental lyricism, dynamic song structures, and whip-crack-acrobatic vocals with projects such as Dufus, Heck Yup & Faergolzia.  Celebrated as a vibrant example of what happens when a musician turns a genre like folk upside down and inside out, over time Faergolzia has come to represent something of a genre unto himself oft times nowhere near the folk aesthetic.With a body of work that exceeds 20 albums and appearances in over 20 countries with the likes of The YeahYeahYeahs, Dan Deacon, Animal Collective, Regina Spektor, Jeffrey Lewis, Moldy Peaches, Kool Keith, Benevento Russo Duo, and many more, Seth Faergolzia is poised to put a spring in the step of his global following with his latest project, MULTIBIRD.  He has, in a short span of months, written 100 songs, and released one fully produced song per week through his subscription website, completing a versatile four album set called #100songs.

The band:

Seth Faergolzia leading, singing and strumming acoustic. Shaun Jones from Heck Yup, will be gently shredding electric guitar. Beat professor, drummer extraordinaire, Dominic Marini was along for the Faergolzia tour last year and has become a solid mainstay in Seth’s projects. Stan Martinelli, the youngest member of Seth’s project 23 Psaegz is wielding the bass like Thor’s hammer.  All four members of the band sing in lush harmony.The freak-folk group will be performing a full and varied cross-section of the peerless oddball music that has delighted and baffled audiences, collaborators, and critics alike for over 2 decades. Faergolzia will continue to shake musical conventions, making moments honest and organic in their exploration of possibility.

“Phenomenal live.” – NME

“Kind and Scary.” – Spex

“Frantic fever-dream folk slashed through with rock stabs.” – The Onion

“As giddy and inventive as it is pissed off, it’s the 21st-century equivalent of the Fugs at their finest.” – Village Voice

“I have never heard anything like this before or since.” – Pop Matters

“Whip-smart pop song writing, intricately clever wordplay.” – KUSF/MTV San Francisco

“This is folk rock twisted and distorted into compelling new structures.” – Relix

“They took that saucepan and spoon and wrote a textured and intense opera… 9 of 10.” – Vice

“Tender, calm and epiphanistic lyrics.” – New York Press

“Seth Faergolzia could be the poster boy for anti-folk.” — Stylus

“Speaking in tongues on top of complex musical phrases, the inspiring frontman of Dufus makes music like nobody else.  Often impenetrable and uniquely original, his rightful place is beside Captain Beefheart and Zappa.”  –Adam Green, the Moldy Peaches
