Hobocombo is actually Andrea Belfi at drums, percussion and voice, Rocco Marchi at guitar, synth and voice, Francesca Baccolini at double bass and voice. Hobocombo re-interpretes some of Moondog's pre-minimalist tunes, canon based songs and his odd snaketime rhythms with drums, double bass, electric guitar and voices.
The result are beautiful and hypnotic songs, with a contemporary psychedelic feeling.
