Customer Reviews

Great music

I first heard about the candy Butchers from CC Chapman and the Accident Hash Podcast. I've bought 2 of the albums so far, and the music always puts me in a great mood. What to do with Michael, Hang on Mike, and let's have a baby are simply great, fun songs.


..may be the most beautiful and heartbreaking song of all time.

Oh, yeah

I can't believe I've never heard of Mike Viola or The Candy Butchers before. I heard 'What to Do With Michael' on 'The Fred Cast' podcast and loved the feel of the song and, especially, Mike's voice. Very clean sound, smooth vocals, catchy lyrics on most of the tunes on this album. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on Viola and any other music he's put out!


Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

The indie pop/rock band Candy Butchers consist largely of singer/songwriter Mike Viola. He first adopted the group name for his duo with Todd Foulsham, playing around New York in the mid-'90s. After Foulsham left to start a family, Viola, as Candy Butchers, was signed to Blue Thumb Records and recorded the album Candy Butchers, which was scheduled for release in 1996, but failed to appear when the label shuttered; Blue Thumb did manage to release a Candy Butchers EP, Live at la BonBonniere, however....
