The Busty Cops were, and are once again, a local San Francisco acoustic comedy duo. Comprised of Jason King and Mike Pletcher, also known as Dog Boy, the band has just returned to the U.S. after a an unintended but very prosperous five years stint in Japan, to sign with Dick House Records. The Busty Cops and Dick House Records, sounds like a match made in heaven. Or jail. Combining elements of folk, punk, some singer-songwriter action and sloppy spoonful of raunch, they’ve lay claim to their own niche of rock and roll and drummed up a dedicated following in the process. But now, the prodigal band has returned, and it’s down to business.

Christ, for the life of me, I can’t figure out why I’ve never heard of The Busty Cops, I live in The City and have been to all the places they’ve performed.
It sounds like they’ve got amazing voices, and I was amped to hear more…but that in studio retard, Brad or Bret, could only manage to queue up the same track over and over.
I see this posting is over a year old, but would you know what they’re up to now? Or where I could hear them? The myspace page seems dormant. Any help would be appreciated. Maybe they have an album?
thanks!!
