Does Anyone Remember Horny Genius?

Posted by on Thu, Jul 14, 2011 at 4:22 PM

A friend’s recent Facebook post about a Psychology Today article titled “Why Smart People Have Less Sex” spurred a train of thought that led to me think about the band Horny Genius for the first time since Bill Clinton occupied the White House. (Speaking of horny geniuses...)

I always thought that Horny Genius was one of the greatest band names ever, but the music didn’t really live up to the moniker. Still, any band featuring Brian Hageman, who later went on to play in Thinking Fellers Union Local 282, deserves your attention. And I do recall Horny Genius’ Burn Your Sister LP to be a decent slab of quirky indie rock ca. 1990. But, yeah, they’re not nearly as great as their handle would lead you to believe. Horny Genius... that is so much better than Black Crystal Ghost Whales.
