Quick-witted absurdist doing accordion-pop…not named Al.

Like the type of dorm room booger-joke weird that poured out of the best Dead Milkmen and Mojo Nixon records, New York's Corn Mo is all the unabashed histrionic fury of Tenacious D poured into a sequined jumpsuit. Armed with little more than an accordion and an absurdist streak as long and dangerous as Avenue A, his combination of MySpace-friendly dementia and Meatloaf-rivaling pipes have earned him tours with They Might Be Giants and Polyphonic Spree. Bite into "The Baloney Song," a most heartbreaking song about a slice of baloney on a magical journey into becoming human waste.
