Possible best band bio ever: "Clearly, the Turbo Fruits are not athletes. They are, however, a rock ‘n’ roll band and one that could likely take your state rock ‘n’ roll champion to the mat in less time than it takes to cue up a record." They have that perfectly slouchy, shiny, unkempt look, and their sound (take single "Sweet Thang") is equally slouchy and punchy, garagey and underscored with bravado. Turbo Fruits' latest, Butter
, was recorded in a mere eight days by Spoon's Jim Eno, and the band is circling the Eastern U.S. in support of that album. They stop by Broadway's on Saturday, Sept. 15. http://turbofruits.com.
