"One of the most original and unusual bands in Rochester; a five-piece ensemble exploring all sorts of musical dimensions linked to free jazz, Third World melodies, exotic instrumentation and a spacey, enveloping sort of music. the Explosion plays with a single-minded purpose and organic oneness that's most impressive." – Jack Garner - D&C

"The Margaret Explosion's music is infinite, eternally elegant, and mystical. Their esoteric wonder paints pictures in my head nonstop." - Frank DeBlase - Rochester City Newspaper

Margaret Explosion
Happy Hour
click cover for more info

City Newspaper said: "Margaret Explosion is an otherworldly lounge band that played an esoteric weekly Friday night happy hour at the Bug Jar. The ethereal soundtrack they provided cast an often eerie, slow-motion effect on the just-out-of-work crowd's revelries. The group's improvised minor-key melodies bathed the room in a melancholy glow, suggesting old eight-millimeter home movies, and blurring the line between experience and reminiscence."

Invisible Idiot
Outta Sight. Outta Mind
click cover for more info

“Outta Sight, Outta Mind” is instrumental so it works in all languages. It rocks the sub- conscience. Invisible Idiot's music is drenched in a Sunday afternoon daydream. Outta Sight, Outta Mind will make you see things with your ears. A limited edition of 500 cds was engraved in two colors at Paul Klem's in Rochester, New York. The band logo is blind embossed. The package is as seductive as the music.

City Newspaper says Outta Sight, Outta Mind is a brilliant soundtrack, for whatever movie happens to come along"
