TONIGHT! G. GORDON GRITTY’S ‘STILL NOT A MUSICIAN’ TAPE RELEASE SHOW!

Slopfest
Flyer by Gritty himself
Tonight, G. Gordon Gritty sonically joins the KLYAM Records family. No longer just the KLYAM haus band. Kids Like You & Me and BUFU Records are teaming up to release G. Gordon’s Gritty’s latest 33 song magnum opus entitled “Still Not a Musician,” a compilation spanning ten years worth of gritty material.

The show takes place at our monthly stomping ground: Club Bohemia (the Cantab Lounge basement) located in Central Square, Cambridge.

Local outlaws, The Shallow End Divers and Underwater Bear Ballet will assist Gritty in a fun filled night of loose, slovenly rock ‘n’ roll. Queens, NY/BUFU Record’s own Tall Juan (of Beets/Juan Wauters fame and glory) will shake your hips and stimulate your mind with his epic Ramones odes; only a true Queens man could deliver. Oh and he’s bringing the whole band.

21+ :( sorry kids… $8. Doors at 8:30, show starts at 9. See you soon.

P.S. G. Gordon Gritty is hitting up Chris Collins’ “Mass Ave and Beyond” Radio show on WZBC from 5-7PM before the show. Tune in to 90.3 around 6 or a little after to hear the band play before you catch em’ in the flesh.

G. Gordon Gritty’s “Still Not a Musician” Coming Out On KLYAM & BUFU/Release Show @ Club Bohemia (5/29)

Slopfest
Flyer by Gordon himself

Yo what up freaks, KLYAM and BUFU are teaming up to bring you the latest release “Still Not a Musician” from Boston Outsider Rockin honoroller G. Gordon Gritty aka Gangbang Gordon. GBG is in the past, let the past be the past. I miss the name too, but Gritty is just as wiry and wholesome and weird and charming as the gangbang. In fact, it’s exactly the same and entirely different. Huh?

More on that later.Joining in on the slopfest are some of our favorites in recent memory. Waltham, MA’s The Shallow End Divers are opening up the festivities with their brand of balls out, no fucking around 60s garage rock ‘n’ roll – slime that would feel right at home at the Delta House. Fellow Bostonians, Underwater Bear Ballet share a similar fuzz fidelity and shake things in an even weirder direction. Rounding out the bill is Queen’s, NY’s own Tall Juan. You may have seen Juan playing alongside the shorter Juan, Juan Wauters in The Beets and in his solo work. Well, if you dig The Beets/Wauters, then you’ll freak out over Tall Juan’s similarly captivating, Ramonesian folk garage pop. Check out the dude’s latest music video for “I Like to Stay Home” (R. Stevie Moore) below. Directed by Beets vet Matthew Volz.

KLYAM & BUFU Present: G. Gordon Gritty’s “Still Not a Musician” KLYAM Records/BUFU Records Tape Release Show w/ Tall Juan (NY), Underwater Bear Ballet, The Shallow End Divers @ Club Bohemia (Cantab Lounge basement) in Cambridge, MA on Friday, May 29th!

This show is 21+ :( sorry kids. $8, 8:30 PM. COME OUT!

Hello local mischief makers, boy do we have a shoe for you tonight. Tonight, tonight, at Club Bohemia (Cantab Lounge basement) in Central Square, Cambridge, KLYAM Presents: Nice Guys, Jacques Le Coque (CT), Black Beach, and Gangbang Gordon. 8:30 PM, $8, 21+ sorry kids :(  Facialbook event Page: https://www.facebook.com/events/748501435268691/

It’s been nearly two years since we’ve seen our punk slimy Connecticut brethren in Jacques Le Coque, but now they’re back and with a new record, may I add. Hooky (King Pizza), pick that sheet up at the show and listen to it here: http://jacqueslecoque.bandcamp.com/ I WANT YOU TO GET SOME COQUE!

Joining the Coque, will be some local ruffians if I ever saw any. I’d like to give a shout out to URSULA first though, they were originally scheduled to play this show, but couldn’t make it due to illness. :(, we send our best wishes their way and you need to LISTEN to them immediately: https://ripursula.bandcamp.com/
Filling in for them is bizarre noisemaker, occasional hipshaker nonmusician Gangbang Gordon. https://gbgordon.bandcamp.com/ Playing a quick solo set to warm y’all up for…

Black Beach is a newer band to me, but one that has consistently shaken my soul with their aggressive brand of psychedelic garage grunge mish mash. Picture The Doors partying in a van with Mudhoney and Nirvana. Throw in some blistering surf rock for good measure. http://blackbeachma.bandcamp.com/
A fantastic addition to the messy, care free rock ‘n’ roll embodied by fellow Bostonians in Miami Doritos, Midriffs, and…

KLYAM Records’ own Nice Guys. Needs no introduction or explanation. Look thru the archives sucka. http://niceguys666.bandcamp.com/

The next next release of ours is the non-music weirdo Gangbang Gordon and he/they are revving the engines, warming everything up real nice.

TONIGHT!: THE PREFAB MESSIAHS MAXI-EP RELEASE SHOW @ MIDDLE EAST UPSTAIRS!!!

Prefabs poster
At last, we are here. I remember being away on vacation last July, when I received a message from Trip Thompson about doing a potential collaboration with Burger Records in releasing The Prefab Messiahs’ first material in over 30 years. I hit play and was serenaded by those Eastern influenced guitar licks on the opening track “SsydarthurR.” It’s eight months later and I’m still spinning or screaming. That screaming sound is probably me or you or kids like you and me. Ahh, see what I did there? Ahh.

But yes, us kids are collaborating with Fullerton, CA’s Burger Records to bring you The Prefab Messiahs’ Maxi-EP “Keep Your Stupid Dreams Alive” and the record release show is tonight, March 19th, at the Middle East Upstairs in Cambridge, MA. The Prefabs will be joined by next KLYAM Records releasers, The Barbazons (formerly known as The Fagettes), Secret Lover, and Fedavees. Fedavess go on first at 9. Be there early! 18+ $10. Presented by Illegally Blind & Kids Like You & Me.

You can order a 10″ vinyl record here: http://klyam.bigcartel.com/product/the-prefab-messiahs-keep-your-stupid-dreams-alive-10-inch-vinyl
OR simply come out to the show tonight and buy one from us in person!

Band Recommendation: Underwater Bear Ballet

Underwater
I haven’t made a band recommendation in a while, hell I haven’t even written about a new exciting band in a while either. Well, new to me. The band is called Underwater Bear Ballet and they’ve been spinning in my head a lot recently; so hard I got the spins. They’re from Boston and they have some really odd pop flavor in their sound that I struggle to describe.

We’ve been enticed by the band for the past couple months now and lucky for us they have some new recordings. Their previous efforts were marked by noise and that general fuzzy, homemade touch that you know we’ve always welcomed around here. Recently however, the band recorded the Couch Surfing EP at Mystic Valley Recording Studio (Free Pizza, Littlefoot, and many others) in Medford, MA with Alex Garcia-Rivera. This new EP took the old demos and amped them up quite a bit. In spite of our sloppy tendencies, I can say with certainty that these new recordings are an improvement and truly augment the band’s strong songwriting. Still, I can’t put my finger on who or what this band sounds like, but that’s probably a good thing.

Check them out here: http://underwaterbearballet.bandcamp.com/

You can see them live at a haus that is white on March 16th and a Cabaret in Emerson that is free on March 21st  (with CHARLIE!), I recommend you attend both and listen to all of their music. Do iT!
