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 can also listen to Dan interviewing the whole band before the show: Part 1 and Part 2
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.
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.
This is a busy week here at The Bosch World HQ. We went into the studio last weekend to record some new songs with Travis Harrison at Serious Business Music studios in glamorous SoHo. We knocked out 5 tracks over two busy days. That’s two days, one EP.
Here’s a taste of what happened during the session:
Coming up next is a really big show on Saturday, Feb. 2. We’ll be playing at Luna Lounge in its swanky new Williamsburg digs.

Some people have written nice things about us on the web in the last couple of weeks.
Concert Livewire: Livewire’s exclusive interview with The Bosch, “One band of note that has recently emerged from this ever-bourgeoning scene is The Bosch, a quartet that successfully marries the immediate, one-two punch of punk bands like The Ramones and The Dead Boys with the detached cool of Lou Reed, while also adding in enough Nuggets-era stained garage rock and West Coast surf music to make both Lenny Kaye and Dick Dale beam with pride.”
Time Out NY: The Bosch: “The Bosch’s recent EP, Hurry Up, is a fun collection of boppin’ rock & roll tunes, juiced with plenty of ’50s-style twang.”
Pop Tarts Suck Toasted: This Week’s Live Picks: “Wow, two of the most criminally ignored bands of 2007 together in one place! Both The Bosch and El Jezel released solid albums last year, but most seemed to go almost unnoticed while much shittier bands were getting lauded on every blog from here to Siberia.”
