Ben DeUrso The zappa-ish vocals, and sort of odd instrumentation create a sound similar but not entirely like any other band. Progressive and funky. Favorite track: Strüdel.

Track Name: Strüdel
It's the best and greatest, time of the day, when all is calm, just arisen, apply energy.
Turn on the breakfast machine, to create vitality, for it is, the morning for either rooster's crow or a tasty pastry.

You can't really go wrong, with a balanced diet of fruits and carbs. Why not have both in one strange design? You can borrow my toaster, it'll only cost a dime!
Track Name: Not A Single Thought
