Hi folks, Josiah A. Pseudonbym here, blowing the dust off of the ol’ webograph machine.I haven’t heard from The Bosch is ages, but they interrupted my walkabout through across Costa Rica to get this thing working again, so I can let you know that they’re getting the band back together to play a couple of shows this summer!
I was cleaning up around the house on a hot, sweaty day here in Brooklyn and found this recording of The Bosch at Luna Lounge on February 2, 2008. Thanks to Dan from Radio Crystal Blue for recording this set!.

You may have noticed that it’s a little quieter than usual here at The Bosch World HQ. After a long hiatus trekking through the Andes mountains and then sailing across the Pacific Ocean, I’ve returned back to NYC to find that without my expert guidance, The Bosch needed to go on hiatus. Currently, the band is frozen in carbonite. If it survives, it should be very well preserved.
In the meantime, I’ll be keeping you posted on the other assorted musical projects that The Boscheteers are creating and playing in.
Pigeonhole Bosch? Not when at any time you can scrape th DNA of Greg Cartwright and Link Wray guitar tones, Iggu’s sneer, Adam Ant’s marching beat, and the lo-fi punch (complete with dissonant horn support) of garage legends the Penetrators… Great stuff.
The Bosch is a quartet out of NYC. I ran across some blogs on these guys last year and made sure to add a mental bookmark for them. They have a raw energy that drives their music (Yes that’s why they are sportin’ the 24 inch pythons). They released their last album ‘Hurry Up’ mid 2007 and it is being accepted pretty well online.
This NYC-based rock band has enjoyed strong national airplay on college radio, which you can tell from their music. The Bosch sounds like a mix between early Killers and The Clash with its “1776” and “Paperback.” This is a band that has the potential for success, but isn’t really at the stage where you can hear their uniqueness, even if it’s bubbling underneath the high-tempo songs. “Hurry Up” is an uplifting album, especially something to play at a wild college party or when you want to wake up your body and mind.
Here’s one short interview and one long interview with The Bosch-ers that you can find on the internets:
The world don’t move to the beat of just one drum. The Cheap Pop interviewed Andrew: “Actor Conrad Bain was a delight as Mr. Drummond, the wealthy white man who adopted two African American children on the acclaimed 1970s sitcom Diff’rent Strokes. On an unrelated note, the Brooklyn-based group quartet The Bosch recently released a new EP entitled Hurry Up. Where is the connection between Bain and The Bosch? How about thinking about the man and the band all bring a giant smile to my face, and make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside?”
Radio Crystal Blue sat down with all four Bosch-eteers following soundcheck at Luna Lounge. You can find the interview here at Radio Crystal Blue along with a live recording of “Later Tonight” from the Luna Lounge show.
