Get the horn

Montreal twisted popsmiths The Unicorns had a meteoric rise and fall. One minute they're no one, then they're being praised to the skies and interviewed by Pitchfork. Now they've apparently broken up. I liked their album a lot, but wasn't as wowed by their show, perhaps because they followed the Besnard Lakes's ear-drum obliterating set. Allegedly The Unicorns are now recasting themselves as rappers. Hmm ....

Anyway, here they are in all their pink-clad majesty. Alden Ginger at left, Nicholas Diamonds at right.

Playing light fixtures is good. Saves Jaime Tambour wear and tear on the cowbell, anyway.

The Unicorns set some record for least hairy-chested band to play Zaphod's. And that includes all-female bands.

Their audience baiting was amusing, I'll give them that.
