Formerly known as Whooping Crane, Strange Haze is a Brooklyn quartet that has been whooping up a raucous racket of riff rock since 2008 and boasts an impressive resumé; Guitarist/vocalist Michael 'Big Sir the Conductor' Lo has recorded and/or toured with artists from The Phenomenal Handclap Band to Latin soul legend Joe Bataan to garage and punk luminaries such as Richard Lloyd and Tav Falco's Panther Burns, while percussionist/flute player/guitarist Dave "the Handler" Scott is an alumni of rapper Guru's live and recording unit. Along with drummer Bushwick Ronnie Seward and bassist Doug Mayer (who replaced original bassist Keith Avenue in June 2010) Strange Haze has digitally released one six-song CD EP, 'Riffin' For Rent' and is now unleashing it's debut vinyl release, a two-sided killer of a 45. 'Let Me Hear the Dropping Pin'/'Test Driver' contains two seriously raucous jams that have become staples of the band's live set.
