Biography

Pitom is one of those galactic events that has a one-in-a-gazillion

chance of happening and actually does: a jazz-punk-country hybrid. The

kind of music that could only come from a culture known for wandering.

The soundtrack to being lost in the desert for 40 years. Cacophonic

guitar, surly heavy-metal bass and a soaring violin, so ethereal that

the listener needs those mosh-pit drums to rocket you back down to

Earth. Yoshie Fruchter and his erstwhile

collaborators in Pitom have already set the New York City

ablaze with their on-stage presence, and this -- the first document of

their remarkable presence on the planet -- is a beautiful and caustic

warning to the rest of the world.(Myspace 2/22/10)
