((Stars Like Fleas)) Band Profile and Upcoming Los Angeles Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Stars Like Fleas is a vast, sprawling collective that has featured members/ex-members of bands like Out Hud, The Fiery Furnaces, Papa M, Super Furry Animals, Mercury Rev, The Silent League and even At the Drive-In. The two main constants in the band are Shannon Fields, who handles music duties, and Montgomery Knott, who handles the words. But the duo has been joined on stage and in the studio by as many as 21 other players.

The band fuses folk, improvisational free jazz, noise, rock, and sonic splendor into brilliantly arranged orchestral sounds of grand scope and spectacle. Although these epic tracks have a free-flowing formula, the music never strays into sloppiness. There's a subtle sense of control to these songs, manipulated by master musicians who entirely know their craft.
