Brooklyn's Kenny Young and the Eggplants play intergalactic folk-and-roll  songs about giant squirrels, scary bits of cheese, malevolent washing machines, and Martian garden gnomes, among other unforgettable topics. 

They received a  Herald Angel Award at  the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and were selected by Tom Robinson for Best of the BBC Live Radio Sessions. Author Alexander McCall Smith named them in Time magazine as one of his favourite artistic discoveries.

"The Eggplants mix brainy, funny lyrics with a fine sense of what makes pop music wonderful, and are intensely dedicated to showing their audience a good time." Dr. Demento
