The Tower of Dudes: The Tower of Dudes

The Tower of Dudes are based in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. The band members hail from Canada, UK, and the USA. Being strangers in a strange land they took some music from their home countries and the result is an Eastern Europe version of punky folk. If you thought that a meldodik can't rock, think again.

This is a band that has written FUN in large letters all over their songs. Their self-titled mini album drops October 16th. Recommended if you like bands like DeVotchKa and the Whisky Priests. Fire up the accordion and let it rip.

Tarah Masu: accordion, melodika
Johnny Feelings: guitar, vocals
Nick Nothing: drums, Glockenspiel, wood block and "Oh's"
