About Yoshie Fruchter

Pitom is one of those galactic events that has a one-in-a-gazillion chance of happening and actually does: a jazz-punk-country hybrid. The kind of music that could only come from a culture known for wandering. The soundtrack to being lost in the desert for 40 years. Cacophonic guitar, surly heavy-metal bass and a soaring violin, so ethereal that the listener needs those mosh-pit drums to rocket you back down to Earth. Yoshie Fruchter and his erstwhile collaborators in Pitom have already set the New York City ablaze with their on-stage presence, and this -- the first document of their remarkable presence on the planet -- is a beautiful and caustic warning to the rest of the world.
