What G. Gordon Gritty Is Listening To – A Lot

Who cares what anyone is listening to? Right??? Full disclosure: anytime you click on any of these songs (on any form of media) I will earn a commission.

Parsnip – “Too Late” – I’ve gone back and forth on what my favorite song is from When The Tree Bears Fruit, the recently released debut LP from Melbourne’s Parsnip. Band of the year, maybe. Gonerfest alumni. I think I like it so much because it has Fat Creepsian ‘Aaahhhh-aahhhhhhh’ parts and then that really killer “I might sammy out of here…” section that is so so addictive. Repeat repeat repeat

Knaughty Knights – “Get Well In Jail” – From the Gonerfest 2 soundtrack. That’s Jack Oblivian singing, right? Clocks in at one minute. Don’t sit down and dissect, just reach for the repeat. Need to kill 10 minutes? 10 “Get Well In Jail”s

Icky Boyfriends – “Pigs” – Okay so the full report is coming soon on how the Nervous Guys show went. Icky Boyfriends, best band. 18 seconds long is “Pigs”. Has my attention span really gone to shit? Maybe.

Paris Hilton – “I Want You” – I’ve been proud to sing Paris Hilton at karaoke at every opportunity. This is a deeper cut aka not ‘Stars are blind’ from her excellent album Paris. The production is insanely thick and juicy and immediate and this sure beats most any Mainstream material from the past 10 or so years (when I stopped following along).

Giorgio Murderer – “Computer Simulation” – Shoutout to Hugo in Montreal, first and foremost. On the subject of cover bands, has anyone tried Giorgio? Too sacred? A band or guy that makes you want to quit making your own music.

The Hussy“Have To Hide” – We all know The Hussy is hook after hook. Been like that for a decade and that’s not stopping. This cut from their recently released banger Looming is filled with brilliance by working in a number of styles – all in a hair over 2 minutes.

G. Gordon Gritty – “The Official Theme Song of the Lil League World Series” (lost rehearsal version)

Long rejected from Little League (TM) as the Official Theme Song, that’s A-okay because this is the Lil League (No TM) Theme, and just in time for the start of the 2019 tournament – one Jeremy Barngrumbles unearthed a lost band rehearsal version. Drop your bats kids and pick up your instruments. Make some noise. Check below:

You’re 13
You’re the star of your team
Grown men say you’ve got good hits
You’ve got free pie, kid

When you return
You’ll hold babies
All because you’ve won the
Little League World Series

Bobby did you hear
Are you going to be there next June?
When your balls drop
You’ll turn 16 and then flop

When you return
You’ll hold babies
All because you’ve won the
Little League World Series

NEXT KLYAM SHOW: Proud Parents – MAY 22nd @ ZUZU (W/ Peach Ring, G. Gordon Gritty)

We are very excited to announce our next show! It is May 22nd (10 PM), another fantastic Rad Castle Monday night event at ZuZu in Central Square, Cambridge. Proud Parents from Madison, Wisconsin, and on tour!, are making a stop here and we are lucky to hear them perform! I am sure many of you remember a couple of years ago, The Hussy (also from Madison) played an unforgettable set at ZuZu. Our pals Heather from The Hussy plays drums/sings in Proud Parents and Tyler from Fire Heads – who were all set to play ZuZu until a bad snow storm hit – plays guitar/sings in the band. Please head over to their bandcamp and enjoy their infectious pop rock ‘n roll. I insist!

Also playing are firebrands and frankly one of the most exciting groups to emerge out of Boston in the past six months or so — PEACH RING. I would head on over to YouTube where the micro-legend Front Row Person has filmed them on a few occasions, including our Feb 4th gig at Club Bohemia.

Lastly – G. Gordon Gritty – hasn’t shown its (my?) sloppy head(s) in these parts since September. Grab your musical handbook, a pair of scissors, and a lighter.
