THE POETTES: New JerseyEdgar Allen & The Poettes offer rich mining & stinky areas with no apologies for any after effects.With their debut cd, New Jersey, EA&P pick up on the sensibility of Horses-era Patti Smith, a young Captain Beefheart and the Dead Milkmen gone mad.
Vocalists Simone Singer-A and Zen Cat weave lovely textured harmonies recalling everything from the B-52s to the great girl groups of the '60s.
Edgar Allen spits and spews with all-you-can-eat nouns and verbs that describe the horrors and joys of contemporary society, the state of New Jersey and even Diet Pepsi.
It is vibrant, relevant and a celebration of The Poettes' unique brand of PoetryMusicTheatreSex.
