ISN'T HOLTZCLAW BEST KNOWN FOR BITING THE HEAD OFF A SIX-MONTH OLD LAOTIAN INFANT? No, Holtzclaw is best known for It's marathon sets and her rollicking jams. Holtzclaw has been known to perform with more than 25 band members on stage at once, sort of a southern-accented Chubawumba without the communist leanings. And what bizzare instrumentation! Like the German Art bands of the late 70's,Holtzclaw can drag out the funk from a myraid of household objects. Aside from bass, guitar and percussion, Holtzclaw offers sounds via banjos, harmonicas, stuffed squeaky penguins, battery powered Hercules swords, bling blangs, Speak'n'Say's, etc.; all sonically blended and rendered into a tasty, frothy Margarita of Sound for your sippin'/groovin' pleasure
