Although these guys have been together for almost 20 years, and even though they've got a sold out gig at the Mercury Lounge coming up next week, way too few people know about them in the States, something that makes just no fucking sense at all. Particularly because not only are they a great band, they all love meat.
Before the show at Antone's they sat backstage and argued about whether or not red, white, or no wine belonged in traditional Hungarian goulash, talked about how to make "love meatballs", which are guaranteed (so they say) to get anyone into the sack, and shared the best place in Copenhagen to cop shawarma (Sharwarma Grill House 1980).
More to come on these guys after tonight's rooftop show at Maggie Mae's but if you love meat-eating bands that give a shit about their craft and write great music, go grab No Balance Palace immediately and pray to whatever you pray to that they release their latest record, Trespassers, in the States as soon as possible.
