Band is from Big Rapids, Michigan, USA. Previously mentioned on here by PhideauxFan in Bandcamp Recommendations forum at the end of December last year: http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=69197&PID=4393247#4393247. Eclectic prog, much influenced by Frank Zappa.
Definitely worth evaluating for a place on here.  Thumbs Up

i would be interested to read some opinions about this band since i think they are not so easy to evaluate since they are a bit all over the place and but also would be of interest for more then one of the teams,

Now showing in Crossover chart: http://progfreak.com/Ultraviolet-Hippopotamus-151985.html?path=pa/recent. No votes cast yet, but as aginor says, it won't be a straightforward decision due to their very variable style. Small matter I know, but country of origin has been entered on progfreak as Canada, but all evidence I have seen suggests that they hail from just south of the border, ie. Michigan, USA.
