Published Jun 08, 2010When a band are called Floored by Four, they're setting the bar pretty high for themselves. When said band include former Cibo Matto member Yuka Honda, John Cale collaborator Dougie Browne, Wilco guitarist and improv guru Nels Cline and the eternally punk rock Mike Watt, it just might be feasible. We haven't even heard them yet and we're already floored by the possibilities.
The newly minted quartet are currently working on their debut album, and according to a press release, they cite Booker T, Can, Captain Beefheart, Miles Davis, Sonic Youth and Sun Ra as influences. Again, we don't even need to hear this band and we know how good they are.
Hopefully, they don't prove us wrong when they release their debut album this fall. Chimera will drop their self-titled debut on September 28. For now, you can check out the band performing the song "Maggot Brain" live in Central Park below.
