The Gist
Kids Like You and Me aka KLYAM spread the good word about good music and release records as KLYAM Records. We write about music happenings in underground rock and roll/punk/slime and occasionally other stuff. It’s unfortunate that good tunes and bands go unnoticed or barely noticed all the time. Rest assured! Good tunes and bands don’t go unnoticed on KLYAM. In fact, promoting these bands is pretty much what KLYAM is about. Aside from album reviews, concert reviews, interviews, band spotlights, and so forth, you will also be able to find entertainment musings of all varieties.

KLYAM became a thing on June 27, 2009. The crew behind the scenes is from north of Boston, Massachusetts, where the winters are cold, the nice weather doesn’t last long enough, and more importantly where touring bands should come through to more often.

Read Kids Like You and Me! You will discover a straight up and purely awesome resource for sick bands and catchy jams both new and old with a gangsta lean to the kind of raw, nasty, garagey, punk, and weirdo side of rock and roll that our pages were founded on. These dudes truly know what is up with underground rock and roll today and they are generously dishing it out on a daily basis. KLYAM will turn you on in more ways than one, mostly with new releases, tour dates, videos, show listings and other nasty sassafras. For punk slime all the time visit http://www.klyam.com. Don’t forget to bookmark that shit, scratch it into your desk if need be. The Kids are there for you.” – Boston Compass
