THE PECULIAR PRETZELMEN
The Peculiar Pretzelmen create a madman’s brew of rock, avant-americana, pre-war blues, and hammer & brimstone – a wicked concoction of both poison and antidote. Fronted by the fearless and occasionally lucid M. Incroyable, the Los Angeles band has been kicking, stomping, screaming, and destroying stages, equipment, and minds since 2006, performing with Voltaire, Jason Webley, Jason and the Punknecks, Calamity Cubes, Lucky Tubbs, Tragedy, Tornado Rider, Baby Gramps, Hellblinki, 2 Skinnee J’s, and Vermillion Lies (Zoe Vermillion also appears on their most recent full-length Innumerable Seeds of Calamity), among many others. They’ve performed at Dragon*con. They’ve toured in a grease bus fueling up on scavenged vegetable oil. They’ve existed as a sprawling gang of 10 and as a focused-yet-cacophonous duo with M. Incroyable on vocals, guitar, banjo, mandocello, and ukulele and the Deacon overseeing percussion that is less drum kit and more spoils of an old man’s work bench. Two full-length albums, five EPs, hundreds of shows, and tens of thousands of miles have cultivated a band unlike any other – the ethics and musicality of pre-World War II blues and jazz men ignited by the “post-everything” DIY mentality of artists too broke to buy into preconceived notions and too angry to be convinced this mayhem could possibly fail.
