Th' Mole - Greatest Hits (Ha Ha Ha) vol.1 + booking call

Doktor Krank's highly recommended release!

“Fuck the world! Jump motherfucker …”

Th’ Mole has been an active producer on the low-budget (or no-budget) music scene for years. Just check his bio at wiki
On 10th March 2009, Th’ Mole released his full-length album called The Greatest Hits (Ha Ha Ha) Vol. 1 in the Mochipet’s Daly City Records. Greatest Hits is not just an ordinary album, it’s got tones of bonus material, including a music video directed by Th' Mole's dad and nine extra songs including remixes by Mochipet, Robot Koch, DJ Amazing Clay, Bloody Snowman, and Preshish Moments. Very good remixes actually, word!

You should definitely check this release, even if you never heard about this guy. His music escapes easy pigeonholing as its creativity goes much much beyond one music genre or style, which is quite a painful thing for music journalists, but a real treat for any intelligent and open-minded music fans. Turbo wonky apocalyptic madness delivered by Th’ Mole with the help of his fantastic vocal cords in a goofy hip hop manner, built on glitch and free-style electronica will elevate your mood instantly! You will be surprised, your mood will swing like in kaleidoscope. But you will definitely love the man behind this entire bombastic nuke dropped unexpectedly on you. Writing about Th’mole music you just cannot escape being a bit bombastic in your selection of words, sorry I can’t do anything about this.

Th’ Mole takes you on a crunky psychedelic ride through crazy songs which sound as if written by musicians with ADHD and a vocalist who digested too many energy drinks and has problems with finding the right pitch to his voice. Yet, they deliver absolutely top-notch productions in an extremely funny and funky cocktail, putting e.g. a pretty spacious, progressive rock-like suite of Don’t be sad – nothing matters next to crunky cabaret/ wonky country bravado of Heart Phire. Other highlights of this record in my opinion are I hate you (in both versions) – a raw killing energy and fantastic vocal. Th’ Mole rambling about a bitch who (as I presume) left him, is very catchy, a potential hit without a doubt. Sonny Boy is another contagious little gem with great vocal. Whirled fusion is the future music is pure electronic free-style fantastically crowning this interesting release.

Th’Mole is currently looking for promoters interested in booking his shows in Europe. Thus I’m calling all pimp and funky promoters in Europe and in particular in Poland – contact the man and invite him to a show, you will never regret this brave move. Check the dates on his myspace (if I remember correctly a possible gig in Poland could be organized around 16 – 23 May).

Then maybe we will have another representative of Daly City Records on a gig in Warsaw. The first one will be none other than Mochipet – a head of Daly City Records. He will play a live set in Obiekt Znaleziony in Warsaw on 17 April 2009!!!! The only show in this part of Europe! The official info with a flyer will be posted soon on my blog.
