Throwaway - "The Brilliant Society of the Illustrious Mule"

Throwaway is weird. Sure, we've covered a LOT of weird bands here. I tend to love bringing you the latest weirdo noise band, but what makes Throwaway truly odd is that they're noisy art rock that still follows traditional pop song structures... mostly. Plus, they're fronted by a woman wearing a paper bag on her head.

You know that "The Brilliant Society of the Illustrious Mule" isn't going to be the latest pop crossover hit based on the song title alone. For the most part Kristen Carey is singing for her vocals, or at least singing a little odd in the way that Kurt Cobain and Mike Patton made famous. And the song is strange, but still kind of a fun odd little quirky alt rock song. And then the screaming starts and the whole thing goes off the rails in the best possible way.
