Antenna Tony Monorail
The wild man of the jew’s harp (Maultrommel, mouth-harp, guimbarde, scacciapensieri), master of bzoiing and duke of twang, Antenna Tony Monorail is probably the most exciting one-man band to come out of the wilderness today. However his raucous two-minute songs owe more to early blues, punk and the hypnotic monotony of Suicide than to the Folkways field recordings of Mongolia. Other instruments include a suitcase with a kick pedal, tambourine shoes, harmonica and a mastodontic voice. Played 100% live, no electronics involved.
