Biography

There are at least two artists by the name Ponytail.

1) Ponytail was a noise rock band which formed in Baltimore, Maryland, United States in 2005. The band consists of Willy Siegel (vocals), Ken Seeno (guitar), Dustin Wong (guitar) and Jeremy Hyman (drums). They have released three albums, “Kamehameha” (2007), “Ice Cream Spiritual” (2008) and “Do Whatever You Want All the Time” (2011). The band disbanded in September 2011.

2) Ponytail (Samuli Tanner) is one of the bright young talents of Helsinki’s musical underground and is internationally probably best known as one half of the dubstep production team Clouds. Ponytail’s music could be called experimental dubstep or hiphop, but one that’s infused with a refined anti-musicianship and roughness that has similarities with the approach of Pekka Airaksinen, the Finnish electronic music maverick of the 60’s generation. In Ponytail’s case the resistance to commercial slickness originates in punk rock and Finnish agrarian folk music. Samuli spent most of his teens in punk groups, and he says that his music’s out-of-tuneness and wayward rhythms have first of all to do with punk spirit, but also the traditional ”pelimanni spirit” of Finnish folk music – Tanner’s family has spawned folk musicians for several generations.

    I love their high pitched guitar lines, interlocking and then falling apart. It sounds great. For a and that is so noisey and discordant at times, they sure wrote some catchy riffs. Some totally strange riffs too -- I'd put some of their riffs up there with Magic Band, Fatal Flying Guilloteens, Erase Errata, Scissor Shock, U.S. Maple, Arab on Radar, and Polvo as some of the most warped guitar lines ever.

    Best noise rock band I've seen. I broke a rib at your set at ATP. You owe me at least a rib.

    Since Molly Siegel now goes by the name Willy, I changed the bio to reflect that. :)
