â€œSuperb instrumentation, gorgeous harmonies, and some of the best lyrics weâ€™ve heard this year . Blind Uncle Harry will make you laugh, cry, and piss you off- often in the same songâ€ (WIUX)
â€œI donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve ever laughed so hard at a show as I did to â€œUh Oh (Sounds Like Somebody Pissed Off Jesus)â€ Then they showed me the video for â€œUh Ohâ€ and I literally laughed so hard I had beer coming out my nose.â€ Kayla Harrison, Artbar venue, Santa Cruz California
Blind Uncle Harry specializes in self defined hillbilly hippie folk rock. They are particularly well known for their raucous live shows with audience sing alongs and 20 minute plus jams. Their previous singles "Christmas Day in Australia" and â€œDopesmokers of the World Unite and Take Overâ€ from their 2015 critically acclaimed debut album Visualize Industrial Collapse received airplay on a number of college radio stations in the US and Australia.
Notorious for being the only performer ever banned by the Indiana University Union Board for referring to the venue operator Starbucks as Starfucks, and encouraging the audience to substitute singing â€œBurn Down the High Schoolâ€ with â€œBurn Down the Kelley School of Businessâ€, Blind Uncle Harry is reminiscent of Todd Sniderâ€™s alt country songs, with the political satire and bite of Billy Bragg. Short of Snoop Dogg, nobody has more references and songs celebrating weed. Playing with the full band, they remind a lot of people of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. Although, to our knowledge, none of those groups nearly caused an entire floor to collapse, as Blind Uncle Harry did during a performance of "Jesus is Comin' in a Rat Turd" at Bloomington's legendary 201 S. Washington house show venue. Blind Uncle Harry has toured around America and played 20 plus West Coast shows during the summer of 2016.
