Uncle Larry & Big Fun 4Ever & Cafe LuLu

By Tea Krulos

On Halloween, the stage of Café LuLu was decorated like the parlor of a haunted house and vampire classic Nosferatu was projected onto the wall in the background. A Grim Reaper was working on setting up the soundboard.

Big Fun 4Ever took the stage first, pumping their dance-machine electronica. Frontwoman India Lathon sang in a strong but calm voice, bathed in red light. She was wearing sunglasses with a giant black bar on the front of them, censoring her identity, and a black and white striped shirt. That and the swirling sound gave the singer the look of '60s hypnotherapy. The rest of the band worked carefully on a variety of keyboards, a laptop, tambourines and guitar.

The crowd quickly caught the beat and soon a sexy witch and a sexy janitor were getting down, along with Cruella de Vil and one of her Dalmatians.

The trio of Uncle Larry, dressed as pirate deckhands, followed. The band played a manic, thrashing set. They have a '90s grunge sound, like The Melvins or Nirvana, mixed with some more eccentric sounds like They Might Be Giants or Talking Heads.

Pikachu, Jason Voorhees and a sexy hobo were all into it.

Toward the end of their set they were joined by the “Live Undead Mermaids,” a quartet of black spandex and skull bra-clad ladies who first attacked the band, ripping their shirts, and then gyrated along, dancing with hula hoops glowing with LED lights.

The set ended with an amped-up version of Talking Heads' “Psycho Killer.” Guitarist and vocalist Billy Judge Baldus jumped off the stage to shred part of the song, as the mermaids enclosed him in a cage of glowing hula hoops. After a couple of jumps off the amplifiers by Baldus, the set was over.

The mermaids led the costumed crowd in a dance party, sharing their hoops with a killer tomato and Max from Where the Wild Things Are.

Fan-Belt.com reviews "The Life & Times of Frederick Caesar"…

Review: "Life & Times of Frederick Caesar," Uncle Larry
By fanbelt

Review by Adam Lovinus

Uncle Larry doles out stripped-down '90s grunge irreverence on their second LP, sounding like a gooey menage-a-trios between Kurt Cobain, Rivers Cuomo and Stephen Malkmus. A self-recorded lesson in attaining the right balance between DIY and studio polish, the record plays loose (sloppy at times) but brutal, the tones and frequencies sparkling throughout. Perhaps the most redeeming asset is guitar/vocalist Billy Judge Baldus' vintage guitar tone — particularly the dirty tremolo he uses on the title track and “I Will Give You My Heart,” along with the crunchy riffing on “Your Lovely Auto Icon” that cribs Wowee Zowee -era Pavement to great effect. The opening track “Fertilizer” is a pure grunge stomper, and the standout track on the album.

Meet Uncle Larry
by fanbelt

Unlce Larry is a cool blend of grunge from the the early 90's and mid-90's power-pop, with song subjects dedicated to the likes of Bella's Fat Cat, Battery Acid and “Samurai-style” composition. This might have been what the Seattle grunge scene would've sounded like if people weren't shooting their weight in heroin.

MP3 “See The Rock City Rock,” Uncle Larry

Uncle Larry plays 9 p.m. Thursday, December 4 at the BBC Upper Level with Wally Dogger (CHI) and The Andes.
