KLYAM Mentioned In PORK

A great honor to be in the Magazine of Rock & Roll America. A fitting combination, I’d say, right You and Me? Anyway, check out a copy online here: http://issuu.com/seangoblinko/docs/pork6 and if you have great clubs/DIY spots that carry the magazine then pick up a physical copy. Here is a link to the PORK website: http://internetpork.com/

Band Recommendation: The Bugs

Description: The Bugs are a band from Portland, Oregon. Not much is known about them. That should change. Their MySpace helps us a little: they are influenced by the late D. Boon and put out an 18 song LP on Hovercraft Records (who?!) in 2009.

Sounds Like: Lo-fi powerpop!

What’s Awesome About Them: Of course, the music itself is really awesome. Imagine the Velvet Underground fronted by a 20 year old from the West Coast who knew about Beat Happening before Beat Happening even became in existence. Besides having a surfy song called “Fuckin A Right” is just perfect. FUCKIN A RIGHT, I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN. I REALLY REALLY KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN.
