from Wikipedia entry for Stealing Orchestra:
A review by Cool and Strange Music Magazine back in 2000 gives a general idea of the music by Stealing Orchestra even if there were many changes in the line-up or musical creation.
"No matter how off the map Mascarenhas' musical funhouse gets, with

His mixed madness has a definite lounge and pop bent to it - yet there is also a strong Portuguese/Spanish flavor. Think of all faux Spanish music that exists out there, then try to imagine what would happen if someone from the area began lampooning American culture with that inherent style. It's like a soundtrack a spy movie ran through a blender."
