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.
