"It's certainly not unusual for us to have a blues band in our studio, and it's not unheard of for us to have a one-man band play live for us either, said Kim Clark. "It is, however, unusual for us to host a one-man blues band that features Tuvan throat singing, a suitcase used as a bass drum, with a box of bones and silverware, a baby shoe hitting a gas can, a circular saw blade, and a cook pot.

Matt Lorenz, a.k.a. The Suitcase Junket, is a one-man-band of guitar & drums, plus an arsenal of instruments built of broken bottles, thrift store forks, dried bones, gas cans, shoes, saw blades, a toy keyboard, salvaged instruments, and an overhead compartment’s worth of luggage. The New Englander is known for  his "lo-fi, low-tuned, low-down blast of end-times folk blues. Matt Lorenz ... incants and intones like a cross between Hound Dog Taylor and a Tuvan throat singer who has swallowed a bird.
