Hunx and His Punx frontman/founder/mastermind Seth Bogart has gone solo for his new album, Hairdresser Blue. It’s a slightly more thoughtful, emotional album than you may expect from the wild man behind Hunx, dealing with break-ups and the death of both his father and a close friend. But while the video for Bogart’s latest single, “Private Room,” finds the out singer all on his own in a chintzy hotel suite, he’s not exactly crying into his pillow on this one. It’s jangly, messy, queer punk for disgruntled hairdressers, waitresses or anyone else with big hair, a polyester uniform, and an axe to grind.
