Felonious Bosch – Phenomena


SKU: OMM2052 Category:


After 8 years playing “music from the new dark ages,” Felonious Bosch is going on hiatus. To end on a high note, the band have completed a final studio album of their most recent recordings. “Phenomena” includes five songs based on traditional and original melodies by Scott Nieman with lyrics by lead singer Katy Thomasberg, plus three covers: “Love Buzz” by Nirvana via Shocking Blue, the notorious (and NSFW) “King of Fuh” by Brute Force (championed by George Harrison, banned by Capitol Records), and the jazz standard “Makin’ Whoopee.”

A recent quote in “Secrets of the City” accurately sums up the band’s approach: “All together, they ve done punk, Celtic, dub reggae, swing, Persian, and we ll just call the rest indie. Felonious starts in rock but where they go from there changes from song to song… When Felonious Bosch swallowed the globe, they succeeded and created something truly original.” – Leah Binkovitz
