Biography

Picture what could be described as double-barreled folk music with a pitch-black playfulness and highly unusual instrumentation, consisting of banjo/mandocello/ukulele, baritone sax, and percussion that is less drum kit, and more spoils of an old man’s work bench. To witness The Peculiar Pretzelmen in a live setting, you’ll find their peculiar brew equal parts barn-burning gospel revival and punk rock (read: more Screamin’ Jay Hawkins than Johnny Rotten), with a spirit both terrifying and simultaneously life-affirming, the yin to the yang of a carnival spookhouse someplace miles away from nowhere you’ve ever been.

    same kind of sound: https://www.facebook.com/pages/M-Veen/400727383397693 ? I'm not sure of the difference between steampunk and cabaret they seem so similiar to me...

    KEEP INCROYABLE FUELED Submitted by admin on Wed, 12/05/2012 - 03:09 People are always asking us here at Pretzel HQ, "sure, we'd love to meet Incroyable out at all these great pubs and bars, but we live so far away, how can we KEEP INCROYABLE FUELED from the comfort of out glowing computer screens?" Well here's your answer. The majesty of PayPal has enabled us to enable you to buy Incroyable a drink. You buy him a beer, and he's happy and thanks you on the twitter/facebook universe. You buy him a whiskey and he'll send you a pic of him drinking said whiskey and thank you on the twitter/facebook universe. You buy him a topshelf whiskey and you get all that stuff, plus you go to heaven. GUARANTEED. Shameless? Yes. Fortunately Incroyable is pretty comfortable with his lack of shame.

    Her voice is amazing! The instrumental part reminds me of the cartoon lol. But the combination of the two was incredible!

    First song I heard was Sing Along, two years ago. It was one of those lastfm moments where I'd drop whatever I was doing with and run to the computer to see the name of the band. I even remember what I was wearing that day. Great band. Love.

    This is really surprisingly good- very Tom Waits-esque in all the best ways. [2]

    I'd like to buy their CD, not mp3s via iTunes. Anyone know where I can find one? I have done some searching but without any luck... :/ (I'd even buy a used one if you have one lying around collecting dust)

    I remember a long while ago my brother came home from a show and told me about a band he saw that he knew I would love. Unfortunately he couldn't remember their name but knew it had the word pretzel in it...he was so right, I love it!
