Purling Hiss

Contact artist


Purling Hiss' Mike Polizze has put in much time in the fried Philly blooze overdrive of the group Birds of Maya, but in his own vehicle he's expanded his grotty guitar wailing into the further cosmos, still shredding speakers aplenty. With new releases out on Richie and Woodsist Records, Purling Hiss became a full-fledged touring unit in 2010, invoking Les Rallizes Denudes, Vermonster, and Alice Cooper at sickness-inducing volume. -Brian Turner / WFMU December 2010
