Mustache Rock? Mustache Rock.

posted by on April 12 at 12:55 PM

Local band We Wrote the Book on Connectors have a new self-released EP out called Almost the Mayors of Laser. They’re a goofy little band. For example, some song titles are “Happy Torso, Bloody Torso,” “Dungeon Master,” and “Gonna Eat Some Cake Tonight” (which is actually about eating cake.. sorta). You can hear a few of the tracks at their Stranger Bands page. Click here.

While I might describe their sound as a quirky and pop-punky sounding They Might Be Giants (there’s some slide whistle and bike horn on the record, after all), they would probably tell me I’m wrong. According to We Wrote the Book on Connectors, their music isn’t rock or indie or punk or pop or metal or rap; it’s self-described as “mustache rock.”

Here is a picture of them:

As you can see, none of the band members actually have mustaches.

No mustaches in mustache rock? Is that legal?

We Wrote the Book on Connectors: Do you love the mustache rock or do you LOVE the mustache rock?

Me: Mustache rock, love it. But can you really make mustache rock when none of the band members actually sport mustaches? Just sayin’.

We Wrote the Book on Connectors: Although having a mustache on your face has been scientifically proven to improve your ability to rock out, it is not a requirement for playing the mustache rock. They are optional. Which is a good thing for me because a 12 year old boy could easily defeat me in a mustache growing contest. However, sometimes I wear a fake mustache. I know it’s fake but it helps me feel more like a man. I also like to wear sombreros.

I stand down.

True story... I once had a mustache. These guys literally rocked it off mid-song at the Nectar last year. Then the keyboardist stage dove on top of me and we danced around the mosh pit until the song was over. The end.
