Cool music for a big dumb world
"The songs are a laundry list of local and national maladies, often depicted with a dark sense of humor. And, as often as not, the music is as playful as the words. All in all, a reflection of inane pop culture, where one no longer condemns the plastic world around us but instead videotapes it for later when there's nothing else on." –Ted Johnson, LAX Magazine
Guitar-slingin' journalist Mike Starling started the Bean Hoy band project as an outlet for his wry, topical tunes about subjects like road construction, farmer tans and the joys of beater cars and Wisconsin winters. To celebrate the release of the band's Lammie Award-winning debut album, Momentous Records teamed up with Nine Volt Media on a new 25th anniversary video and best-of collection.
