“Foamola is the only anti-rock band named after an herbal arthritis remedy. All our music is original, with tunes by Lawrence Fishberg (keyboard, vocals) and lyrics by Sparrow (ocarina, items found in the trash, vocals), with occasional words from Violet Snow (flute, vocals). Sylvia Mae Gorelick (xylophone, vocals), now 22, has been a band member since her months in the womb. Guest artists often join us onstage.”
