Sid Yiddish And His Candy Store Henchmen (CD Release Show “Hard Boiled Eggs”)
SID YIDDISH AND HIS CANDY STORE HENCHMEN
In the early days, man created fire. He invented the wheel. He developed the birth of sound and noise. And on December 10, 2010, he created Sid Yiddish And His Candy Store Henchmen. And the world gasped.
The Henchmen’s arsenal of instrumentation includes guitars, odd animal horns, double-belled trumpets, discarded agent devices and the occasional canine vocalist.
The music Yiddish creates, simply put is called “The Henchmen Method,” drawing from 75-plus gestures he developed over a period of three years, which he teaches throughout the world, including such diverse places like Mexico and Denmark.
Yiddish’s method it is said is comparable to a baseball manager’s secret hand signals, visual Morse code and a bit of colorfully scenic hillbilly narrative. His band’s sound is best described as catatonically captivating conductible washes of atonal assonance inside harmonic improvisation, bridging the gap between new music, theater, comedy and performance art.
The Candy Store Henchmen have performed at several Chicago area venues, festivals and broadcast outlets, including the Museum Of Contemporary Art, Green Mill Jazz Lounge, Columbia College’s Manifest, Make Music Chicago, college radio stations WNUR, WZRD and commercial radio station WGN and TV appearances on America’s Got Talent and The Mancow Experience.
His mission is to bring organized chaos to the universe, one human at a time. Sid Yiddish And His Candy Store Henchmen are your most obedient servants.
