We Lost Our Legs in the War, We Just Can't Remember Which War

by Hectic Hobo

Wild West gypsy folk rock. Banjos, accordions, and electricified guitars. Mischief and mayhem, wine and fire. These hymns throw Molotov cocktails at railroad barons, warmongers, fiendish financiers and dirty politicians, making you dance the whole while.

Album Notes
In the old vagabond gypsy styles, inspired by rusty cans, laceless leather boots, steel mill strikes, the disparity between the classes, the fear of being alone and the fear of being with someone, the crap people absorb from tv, and the fun that everyone wants to have but doesn't dare, Hectic Hobo comes blaring out of the boxcar singing songs about mischief, trapdoors, hitchhiking, spicy Mexican dishes and spicier Mexican muchachas. Their live shows quickly engage audiences of all size, sucking crowds into the performance and not letting them go until the last cymbal has crashed and someone throws water in their face.

Hectic Hobo, Utah's own beloved Wild West gypsy rock extravaganza, has been described as " the perfect soundtrack to knapsack-toting, train-hopping, grime-collecting adventures." Hop on the boxcar with us, rest your weary bones, and let us spin you a tale.
