David Liebe Hart
Known for his roles on Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job!, and extensive tours throughout the US, Canada and Australia, David Liebe Hart is an outsider musician, actor and painter. A true original, he has communicated with extra-terrestrials, owns a large collection of puppets, and is obsessed with trains. While his vast and bizarre catalog of songs about aliens, religion, and failed relationships has yielded cult hits, such as "Salame", "Father & Son" and "Puberty", his recent collaborations with electronic musician Jonah Mociun, AKA Th' Mole, have propelled Liebe Hart into previously unexplored territory.
Throughout the past decade Liebe Hart has garnered a substantial and die-hard fan base, not only from his TV and film appearances but from his stints on the road performing music all across the US, UK, Ireland and Australia. His followers are extremely supportive and loyal, won over by David's obvious goodheartedness, honesty and hilarious idiosyncrasies, as well his fun and engaging stage shows.
With Jonah Mociun as backing musician, Liebe Hart puts on a show certain to please old fans and new ones alike. In addition to creating electronicised versions of David's old favorites, the duo performs their new songs along with puppets, projected video accompaniment, and David's oddly endearing stories of past relationships and paranormal encounters.
"On paper, it sounds like a novelty: an album of songs that celebrate hockey. But in the hands of The Zambonis (a pop-rock quartet named after the ice-grooming machine), the concept is elevated to an art form that won't melt under the heat of critics or music fans. Despite the specificity of the album's theme, The Zambonis rock out like the best power pop units. What's more, they have a sense of humor about themselves…A timely and surprisingly appealing release."
"They're actually funny and actually rock!"
--Time Out New York
"Their new record is as goofy, poppy and puck-obsessed as their previous two…Hockey heads and indie rock fans, you'll love these guys!"
"The Zambonis may sound like a simple novelty act, but it scores repeatedly with a bunch of snappy little power-pop songs. Even if you wouldn't know what a slapshot was if it hit you in the face, you'll cheer."
--The New Yorker
"The Zamboni is a massive machine used to smooth the ice at hockey rinks, but these days the name has a much cooler reference.
--Mike ("Doc") Emrick, NHL Commentator
"I love The Zambonis!"
--Alexei Kovalev, New York Rangers
"The most insidious threat to Canadian hockey hegemony is…a quirky power pop band called The Zambonis."
--The National Post (Canada)
"You wacky singing hockey nuts!"
"With a repertoire comprised exclusively of hockey songs, you'd think they're destined for a short run: A cult band singing about a cult sport…but their cult is getting noticed."
--The Village Voice
"My day ended on a phenomenally high note. I went to see The Zambonis, who are the best power pop band ever to sing songs about hockey."
"There's something weirdly affable about a bunch of guys who love hockey so much, they've dedicated a band to it."
--The Village Voice
"Like a beach party on ice!"
"Dude, I love The Zambonis."
A rock 'n' roll affront for modern times.
'The men don't know, and the little girls don't understand either.' Dust Hat is a New Haven rock 'n' roll party attack featuring Brendan Toller on vox/guitar, Sagittarius Moon Goddess Robin Woerner on vox, herpatologist Jeff Slocum on lead guitar, Dan Soto (of Dan Soto & the High Doses) on thunderstick, and the one and only Rob Ruby on the beat of the traps. Think Peewee Herman's version of the MC5. Drag optional, dancing required.
