Infinity And Beyond!

October 17, 2005


The fact that Dungen was at the Bowery Ballroom this weekend was news good enough, but the appearance of the Swedes is almost always accompanied by a rare appearance from the mighty Endless Boogie, and that's news even better. Two birds, one stone! The Boogie seemed to get a pretty lukewarm reception from the Dungen psych-fantastic crowd—there was nary a seat in the Bowery's basement bar while the Boogs was onstage upstairs, but hey! - that shit's not for everyone. If you find Beefheart Boogaloo vocals to be a put-on; if you don't get a buzz from Swampy riffage and explosive solo-age; if you aren't thrilled by the simple pleasure of a rhythm section that takes it down (a little bit softer now... a little bit softer now) and then brings it back up (A LITTLE LOUDER NOW...A LITTLE LOUDER NOW) like the seven piece band at a debutante ball doing "Shout"; if none of that strikes your fancy, then yeah, sit downstairs, have a beer and wait for Gustav and company. We'll be upstairs, rockin along.
