The NYC dance-punk lifers have been chronicling the perpetual meltdown that is American society for nearly 20 years now, from the clattering full-band thrust of their instantly iconic 2003 single “Me and Giuliani Down by the Schoolyard (A True Story)” to the dark disco of 2017’s wonderfully eclectic Shake the Shudder.
Counted amongst the top 100 best prog bands of all time, their musical palette is diverse. and while they draw on influences from the golden age of seventies’ rock, they have developed their own unique sound and style that both captures some of the essence of that heady era and yet looks forward into the future.

In 2014, the collaborative melting pot of York’s live music scene conspired to produce Hyde Family Jam. A traditional arrangement of guitar, double bass, accordion, and violin with a mandate to deliver blisteringly subverted renditions of popular songs.
