Before You See Him at the Mateel, Please Define Hank 3's Music For LoCO

It's all too common in the music biz for bands to promote themselves by acting as though they are just not up to the task of describing the music they play. Or worse, when they give you some long-ass, unhelpful made-up genre. Generally, your Lost Coast Outpost ain't buying' it. C'mon, band, you could have easily shortened "ambient aggrotech cybergrind folk pop" into the much more understandable genre "unlistenable." That would have served us better.

But then there's Hank 3, who we mention here because, of course, he'll be at the Mateel Community Center Wednesday night. That dude is actually kinda hard to define in that he floats between genres so regularly. Proof? Well, just a couple weeks ago, the guy simultaneously released two very different sounding albums. We'll let Hank (via his website) describe 'em:

Musical ADD! Love it. So as much as we whined about the ongoing onslaught of genres invented by musicians, LoCO will now ask you to invent a category for Hank 3's music and leave it on our Facebook page. Best submission wins a job in music PR.
