The Howling Hex “Wilson Semiconductors,” Victory Chimp

The Howling Hex “Wilson Semiconductors,” Victory Chimp (Drag City) On the new album by Neil Michael Hagerty (or “NMH,” as Harold and Kumar call him in their series of hilarious movies) he’s sorta a folk musician, or more accurately, an off-axis World Musician, hailing from an imaginary country where bagpipes, stolen-from-college-radio-station-libraries Jandek records, blues guitar, calliopes, and thumb pianos are the national instruments.  Children’s music for bizarre children.  Also on the hopper is NMH’s massive audiobook of his not massive 90s novel Victory Chimp, and I don’t want to provide too many spoilers but I will say that the Drag City crew has split the difference between audio book and old time radio drama in exciting (?) ways!
