The Morpholinos

[For Background Use Only]

With the highly anticipated and highly curious “[For Background Use Only]”, New York City’s THE MORPHOLINOS are on a mission to prove that back- ground music does not have to make us cringe. The trio of keyboards, electric bass and a bastardized classical guitar-turned-drumset called the “shuitar” is accompanied by eighteen different players of various instruments to meticulously re-sculpt favorites by Michael Jackson, Duran Duran, The Band and Bon Jovi. Laugh or cry—your choice.

“[For Background Use Only] wears a smirk from start to finish, but it’s so affable . . . that it never distances the listener. Everyone’s having a good time.” — Justin Stewart, SplendidEzine.com
