17 PYGMIES "Missyfish" (US,1991)


17 Pygmies started as a side project of Savage Republic but after SR disbandment, they followed an orbit of their own. Original main members Philip Drucker & Robert Loveless became trio with the addition of the poet Louise Bialik and completed band`s first phase with " Missyfish", a Nate Starkman & son LP consisting (side a) of the re-released 12`` "Hativka" (1983) and (side b) "missyfish" recordings from 1988/89.
17 Pygmies reflect the psych pop side of SR. Dreamy/haunted new wave style, atmospheric guitars, female vocals,various avant & eclectic small ideas.
Recently, after more than 16years silence, Phillip Drucker & Louise Bialik reactivated the band.
