Hairdresser Blues

(Hunx And His Punx, Gravy Train!!!!)

Hardly Art 730522

Released on February 28, 2012



“Somebody once described my music as ‘Hairdresser Pop.’ I don't know what that means,” admits Seth Bogart, part-time hairdresser and full-time rock star. “I don't know what that sounds like. I do know that it seems appropriate in describing the sound of this record.” All of the songs on Hairdresser Blues were written and arranged by Bogart, who also contributed all of the instrumentation, apart from with the drums, which were preformed with atypical restraint by Daniel Pitout of B.C. noise-punk act Nü Sensae. Hairdresser Blues reunites Bogart with producer Ivan Julian (Richard Hell and the Voidoids), who manned the board for Hunx and His Punx’s Too Young to Be in Love (Hardly Art, 2011). Thematically and musically, Hairdresser Blues departs from the retro-riffic kitsch and camp of Too Young. Says Seth, “Sometimes it's hard to sing about something really sad when I'm wasted in a wig and makeup and screaming my head off on stage trying to dazzle people.” The songs on Blues—inpsired, in part, from wee-hours dream-state demo recordings—touch on everything from nasty break-ups to the Bay City Rollers to the death of Bogart’s friend and contemporary Jay Reatard. “A lot of this album deals with topics I don't usually write about. I wasn't concerned with entertaining people with these songs. I just wanted to get them out of me.” The end product of Bogart’s emotional exorcisms is a record that’s personal, prismatic, and positively contagious—an eleven-track bouffant of an album with streaks of glam, garage, power pop, and the Dunedin Sound in its hair.
