Booji Boy High - Twist Myself Again

Booji Boy High are a Hot Chip side project with a Devo reference in their name, so I'm sure you can understand why my ears perked up when I first heard about them. Booji Boy (pronounced "Boogie Boy", at least in the Devo world) was one of the crazy characters dreamed up by Mark Mothersbaugh to go with the fictional world of their band. According to Wikipedia, "the intent of the figure is to satirize infantile regression in Western culture". Well, duh! Booji Boy High just put out their debut 7" on DFA Records, and the music definitely resembles Hot Chip, but maybe with a little more "whimsy", if you will.

Check out another track over at the DFA Records MySpace page.

I gotta say this has become just about my favorite song. Couldn't say why, it's just that good.

I've got to give you mad props, because I never thought an entry more than two years old would still contain a live link. Booji Boy High turns up in three articles on Wikipedia, but only peripherally. Not much info on these guys, but I love Hot Chip and remember this song from when it came out, so it's nice that I could find it "all these years later," considering how time flies on the Net. Thanks again.

Someday it really will be "Universal Access to Human Knowledge," like the Internet Archive espouses (66,000 live shows & counting!)
