Bent Peg "Vuja De: That Incredible Sense of Never Having Been There Before" - 1996 CD
The ever quirky Bent Peg were a huge part of the local music scene in the Cortland / Ithaca area in the mid-90's. Hard to quite describe their sound, bits of Faith No More and maybe The Offspring, Punk, Rock, Oddness. Super energetic live. After a few demos, they went into Penguin Studios in Syracuse and recorded this masterpiece. They had it mastered at Pyramid Sound Studios by Alex Perialis and Jason Arnold, and it still sounds great almost 20 years later. I do have some, if not all, of the demos, which I will get up sooner or later, as well as some live videos. Matt Barnes, the frontman of the band, is currently in Genitor, as well as a host of other bands.
