Bloodhound Gang to perform in Bucharest

One of the most creative and yet controversial bands, this time coming from the US will be hosted by The Silver Church club on March 15. The Bloodhound Gang is a Collegeville, Pennsylvania-based American alternative/punk rock band, whose current members are Jimmy Pop (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Jared Hasselhoff (bass guitar), DJ Q-Ball (turntables, keyboard), The Yin (drums, percussion) and Denial P. Cartier (lead guitar). Their songs typically have humorous and off-beat, satirical lyrics that often deal with sexual subjects. They are best known for their hit singles “Fire Water Burn” and “The Bad Touch”. Formed in 1992, Bloodhound Gang has sold more than 6 million albums. In March 1995 the Bloodhound Gang signed a record deal with Columbia Records. They released their first full-length album, titled Use Your Fingers. They began touring around the United States. At this time Daddy Long Legs and M.S.G., who were angry with Columbia Records, left the band to form another rap group, Wolfpac. Bass player Evil Jared and Turntablist Tard-E-Tard joined the group as replacements. When the tour ended, the deal with Columbia Records was dropped. The band is no stranger to controversies along the years. Geffen Records refused to release the song “Yellow Fever” due to its lyrical content about Asian women. The band arrived in the middle of a media storm mid-2006 when they started using a “golden shower” act onstage during a rendition of Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence” at Rock Am Ring and Pinkpop.
