Hunx And His Punx
WebsiteHunx And His Punx
Sometimes-hairdresser Seth “Hunx” Bogart is bratty, gay, and, according to Pitchfork, “deliciously trashy.” This ex-Gravy Train!!!! frontman got himself an all-girl band, the Punkettes, and decided to retro-rock. Hunx hit the scene a couple of years ago with “You Don’t Like Rock And Roll,” a Ramones-style riff on the Liza and Babs-centric gay music world, a style that continues on Hairdresser Blues, the musician’s first solo full-length, out now on Hardly Art. The new Hunx is just Hunx, no Punx. Because, as frontman Seth Bogart vaguely describes, “Hairdresser Blues doesn’t feel like a Hunx And His Punx album.” Blues is unpolished modern garage-pop, as infatuated with ’60s kitsch rock as it is with ’70s East Village punk. With a voice that only a lover could love, Bogart yelps and whelps nasally throughout the album.
