Benjamin Schoos, aka Miam Monster Miam is a lunatic.
Every new project on his label, aptly named Freaksville Records, is a U turn from his previous move.And not only does Benjamin Schoos go his own way, the oddest thing is he makes you want to follow him! So there we go on his strange rocketship traveling through time, space and music. Miam Monster Miam’s sound is a kaleidoscope of everything you ever heard and loved (or hated!). From Kevin Ayers he borrowed the nonchalant crooning voice, from Todd Rungren the almost mystical melodic sense, from Jonathan Richman the looney poetry, from Sky Saxon and Roky Eriksson the punky urge.
The question of course is: is there a place for an eccentric like Benjamin Schoos in the music world today? Hey! If there isn’t, shame on us music lovers!
