Who is Witch Yikky?

Well to tell you the truth were not exactly sure... About two weeks ago Matt and Nate Bowers were tromping through the dark, thick woods of Huntington Beach when they stumbled upon a strange looking straw hut. Inside this straw hut was an even stranger looking witch, Witch Yikky. Now,ever since we found her in the woods she just wont leave us alone.
Check out some videos of Witch Yikky below. Oh, and apparently she has a twitter now so follow her at Twitter.com/WitchYikky I guess...



"Winter Is Blue" The first of our cover blogs

A lot of people always ask us in the Angry Mob “Who do you sound like?” Our response is often an inaudible mumble, or an obscure story or reference.

This is because it is quite hard to answer that question, not because were pretentious jerks though. Well… not only because we are pretentious jerks.
I as well as the other members are into lots of different music and have diverse influences. Therefore every two weeks or so we will be posting a new cover song on the webpage by someone we like or who is influential to our music in some way.

This will ideally show where we get our influences, so you can stop asking us, and we can stop pulling out snooty sounding name drops.

Sound like fun?


The first song is:
“Winter Is Blue” by Vashti Bunyan.
I really love this song, it’s just so unbelievably sad and heart wrenching. But it also has that sign of hope in it. Like everything sucks, but its going to be okay eventually. I think that’s the sign of a great song when you can get more than one feeling out of listening to it. Another great thing about this song is that she lays everything out in simple plain language so you can get a vivid picture of everything that’s going on. Our recording was done awile ago with two guitars myself and Elizabeth "EL" Messick and a bit of glock (enspiel).  Vashti has one of the most beautiful voices ever and if you don’t know who she is I strongly recommend getting into her music. she’s still making records today, Ben Gibbard and Feist recently recorded a version of her song “Train Song” for the Dark Was The Night Compilation. Plus She traveled around Europe in a horse and buggy in the 1960s, how Cool is that!?!
