Many things have been said about Matt Kollar and the Angry Mob and the various sounds and songs that this reptilian, perplexing individual creates. Some describe Matt Kollar's tunes as such: "delicate melodies strolling arm-in-arm with a Paris café-style accordion" or,” It has moments where I feel like I’m listening to Chuck Berry", or perhaps as one English gentleman said,” a buoyant yet reflective organ led concoction of sound that makes drowning in the sea of life seem like fun." These are all very nice, however they are unimportant in the scheme of things. I could tell you about Matt Kollar growing up in the pine forests of British Columbia, and moving to southern California by the polluted and over-populated seaside. I could tell you all about the Angry Mob and the few records they have released in the last few years that have received high local and international acclaim, that by the way can be seen at mattkollarandtheangrymob.com. If I were a bolder man perhaps I would tell you about his collaboration with fellow profligate and music partner Lauren Chanel Cobb and their group, "Pony". http://www.facebook.com/ponymusicpage . I could tell you about his film-composing career that started with him working on the feature film "God Bless America" directed by part-genius, part-saint, half-bedlam inmate, Bobcat Goldthwait http://www.facebook.com/godblessamericamovie. But you wouldn’t really care would you? You who at this moment are either at work escaping the "hum-drum" of your listless and mediocre day-to-day by browsing the facebooks on your smart phone or lap top, or up at some unholy hour with the wolves and owls bludgeoning that nagging sand-man on his head with an anvil of procrastination. Yes you, you who are consistently bombarded by a billion sound waves and the shallow glow of your laptop raping your already fragile and exposed mind. Personally I recommend going outside, starting the revolution and leaving this bullshit for the cockroaches and the birds, but that’s just me, and I digress.
