Home grown in Bushwick, steeped in the rarefied air of glue factories, Hot Knives is a project of musical stitching: faded patterns of analog psychedelia // punk stewing in the Bowery since 1984, feeding crocodiles // the funk that departed on the Mothership, still beaming messages of hope to those who can pick up its signals. Hot Knives translates this new-old wisdom for our struggling world. Hot Knives is part MC5, part Funkadelic, part Butthole Surfers. Throwing back to the sound of electric psychedelia from 67-72, and adding in a bit of noisy bedroom punk weirdness of their own, Hot Knives create a face-melting tapestry of nostalgia and new rock n’ roll. Elements of punk, funk, blues, and avant-garde drip and swirl together into the mandala that is Hot Knives. The booties must shake. The eyes must open. Take some Hot Knives and get to work.
