Rocks Off loves extreme personalities. Whether it's the serene, spiritual symphony that is Tyagaraja, or the pre-frontal lobe melting experience that is Tubby Chubcakes we just can't get enough of people who go screaming over the edge of normalcy like Thelma and Louise.
And ladies and gentlemen, the undisputed king of those people is a man who goes by the name Dr. Milo Thaddeus Pinkerton III from a New Orleans band called The Consortium of Genius.
Picking a genre for C.o.G. is daunting. To call them a comedy band is as unfair to them as it is to Weird Al., though the two share much in common. When you venture past the parodies into the album tracks that Weird Al has done, something like "Albuquerque" for example, you realize that you are dealing with a very talented musician who uses jokes like shoegazers use glasses and delay petals.
The same is true for C.o.G.. The band's mastery of genres as diverse as punk, jazz, metal, New Age, sea chanteys, ballads, and industrial is astounding. You literally never know what you're going to get musically when you put on one of their albums.
