Victor Krummenacher Bio

Mr. Krummenacher's Fifth Business - “The Prince of Lies b/w Robert”
MAG0003 - 7" Single

The Prince of Lies was Victor Krummenacher’s first solo oriented work, done with Fifth Business, his band from 1993-1994. Fifth Business featured Jonathan Segel (aka Dr. Firebrain), and Yuma Joe Byrnes, later of Tarnation. The surf rock versus southwest sounds of this single are some of the few remaining documents of what this unique and short lived band were capable of. Basically a hit piece on a lover, names are named and stories are told and we’ll leave it at that. Kind of like having dinner with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
