is a New York City jazz
band, originally formed as a Knitting Factory
vehicle for Steven Bernstein
to exercise his slide trumpet
. Sex Mob's sets feature a high proportion of covers
, usually familiar pop songs, given a humorous, but avant garde treatment. Bernstein points out that this is a return to a fundamental jazz tradition, to take a familiar song then disassemble and reassemble.
