Punk poet John S. Hall made his mark in the 1980s/1990s New York rock underground as the front man of avant-weirdos King Missile (anyone remember “Detachable Penis”?) and found more fame via appearances on MTV’s “Spoken Word Unplugged” and HBO’s “Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry.” Nowadays, Hall has a new band, Unusual Squirrel, which he’ll bring to Club Helsinki on September 10 as part of the venue’s Rogovoy Salon series.

Curated and hosted by Chronogram contributor Seth Rogovoy, the monthly Rogovoy Salon features hand-picked musicians, writers, and, other artists and, in some cases, also includes conversation and a Q&A with the performers. Unusual Squirrel’s debut album, Fuck Sandwich, was released in January of this year. In this clip, Hall and one incarnation of the band hold forth appear at Saint Marks Church in New York:

Unusual Squirrel will perform under the auspices of the Rogovoy Salon at Club Helsinki in Hudson, New York, on September 10 at 7pm. Tickets are $15. For more information, call (518) 828-4800 or visit http://www.helsinkihudson.com/.
