Hunx - 'Hairdresser Blues'. Hunx - 'Hairdresser Blues'. He's back with a razor sharp debut of garage rock and glam gems. You might think that hairdressers, with their first-rate small talk, nifty way with a feathering razor and licence to talk about ‘dramality’ TV all day, have got it made. Yet it would seem that even the coiffurazzi get the blues. Fresh prince of trash Seth Bogart is more commonly known as San Francisco Bay Area’s notorious Hunx. The sweetly impassioned album closer ‘When You’re Gone’ also might have you pretending that it’s just the shampoo in your eyes that’s making them water, with its echoes of the Moldy Peaches’ DIY balladry.

When You're Gone Hairdresser Blues is the first solo record from front man Hunx, and features all Hunx, all the time (minus drums, played by Daniel Pitout).
Though Blues is a quick listen, clocking in at a scant 26 minutes, it twists and turns (and builds up and breaks down) so much that it feels much longer and somehow more complete than past efforts. 60. Overall, the album is something of a grower.
Bay area musician Seth Bogart, aka Hunx, would like to let everyone know that Hairdresser Blues is definitely not a Hunx and his Punx album, thanks so much. Despite the solo release distinction, the album still highlights Bogart’s At the Hop -style prowess that defines Punx offerings. This effort, however, mixes in death and other dark stuff, adding flecks of depth into the typical milkshake pop batter. Hairdresser highlights frustrations stemming from relationships with Set Them Free to the woes of professionally cutting hair in the title track
The combination of great songs and an antics-heavy live show cemented the group in a lineage of flamboyantly fun performers and also centered around frontman Hunx's larger-than-life persona.
