Theo Bleckmann, downtown vocalist extraordinaire, brings his band to unveil his new project – reinterpreting the songs of the reclusive British art-rocker Kate Bush. He takes on her mysterious songbook in "Hello Earth! - The Music of Kate Bush."

Bleckmann assembled an all-star cast to further extend the realms of sound and interpretation. Joining him in this venture is long-time collaborator percussionist John Hollenbeck, bassist Skuli Sverrisson, keyboardist Henry Hey and Caleb Burhans on electric violin and guitar.

That version of "Suspended in Gaffa" was ridiculously bad. Disjointed, yes, and bad.
