Formed in 1976, the Fleshtones are nearly 40 years into their career of confusing genre purists by sloshing their stylistic mop through punk, garage, New Wave and rockabilly (and anything else that goes completely nuts) in order to achieve their unclassifiable energy. Their album output has been remarkably steady since their full-length debut in 1982, though it’s slowed in recent times. For a reminder of their inventive spirit, you may want to spin their 2014 release, Wheel of Talent
, where they bring in brass instruments and strings like never before. Next, they bring that fearless Fleshtones force to Will’s Pub to celebrate local garage rock kings the Woolly Bushmen as they release their new LP, Sky Bosses
. We haven’t heard it yet, but the phenomenal art by Joe Schorgl – featuring fuzzy discombobulated characters in a SoFla setting – has us twitching to change that.
The Fleshtones with the Woolly Bushmen, the Empyres | 8 p.m. Sunday, May 3 | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org
