Alice Donut is a band that always brings together people who enjoyed a common, punk do-it-yourself outsider ethic – with a big emphasis on “freak” and “weird” psychology – people who enjoy a humorous take on an anti-corporate and anti-mainstream attitude, almost turning the tables – that the really funny freaks are corporate and mainstream. Alice Donut shows always seem like a celebration of this shared secret knowledge. And of course Alice Donut (notice the phonetic wordplay on L-S-D ) is a hard driving band – hard driving groves. Some of the best energy in Indie rock history.
