Hot Pursuit Of Happiness is Thollem’s solo show forging a fun-filled onslaught of Punk-World, Noise-Blues and Avant-Americana through an unruly electrionic beast of vintage keyboards and stomp boxes. About the bitter sweet existence in 21st century America, always somewhere between being pursued and pursuing, healthy rage against it all, love and death, the time of our lives. With songs from recent albums Machine In The Ghost, Always Put On Your Sincere Face and Tsigoti, plus music from Howled Ground, Operation Sunbeam and his newest release Who Are U.S. The show will be backdropped by a hyper-speed video of Silver Ochre’s trip around the U.S. last year.
As a songwriter and singer Thollem’s released albums with long-term and ad hoc bands including Tsigoti (Jacopo Andreini, Andrea Caprara, Piero Spitilli and Matteo Bennici), The Hand To Man Band (Mike Watt, John Dietrich, Tim Barnes) and The Whistling Joy Jumpers (Jad Fair and Brian Chase). Last year his first solo album as a singer ‘Machine In The Ghost’ was released by Personal Archives Records. Tsigoti’s 5th album will be coming out later this year.
“Unreal linear explosions, extreme imagination”
(Greg Burk, LA Weekly)
“Thollem’s the kind of fiercely independent artist the world needs more of.”
