Tuscon's twisted troubadour of twang returns with his second Alternative Tentacles record. If the Dead Milkmen met Bob Dylan and hallucinated in the desert outside of Tucson, Halloween in America would be the result! This new album proves that Fish Karma's rusted razor wit is just as deadly as ever. He's been called everything from Neil Young's bastard brother to the most horrible thing you've ever seen in your life. His career in creative antagonism began at the University of Arizona where Fish worked with a student-run comedy troupe. The stage bug infected him and, discovering that he could neither sing nor play an instrument, he decided to begin a life in music. His concerts made him a cult figure. Byron Coley wrote in The Village Voice, "Fish is a great entertainer. Live, he strums along at whatever tempo he wants & rants & raves the funniest observations this side of George Carlin." Fish Karma's punk rock sensibilities led him to work with Al Perry & The Cattle, Mojo Nixon and Jello Biafra, who said, "Fish's music is your basic Fugs-style electric grunge folk, and his lyrics feature some of the meanest put-downs of American consumer culture I've heard in years." Fish is well-known for his wry wit and humor, as well as an insatiable need to spit on all things conventional. He says "Part of my problem is that the first record I ever heard was 'My Ding-A-Ling' by Chuck Berry. I have been struggling to overcome that disability ever since." Halloween in America is Fish Karma's latest twisted pop twang communique from the tract home wastelands of Tucson!
