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.

Band Recommendation: The Shallow End Divers

Every now and again, a mess-around, all-around fun local garage band comes to your attention. They might be new or old or some mysterious combination of those. The Shallow End Divers aren’t fly by night, lets get sauced and record it to 7″ toga wearing ’60s frat boys like The mighty Kegstands but to me they carry on that sweet sloppy casual trick. Yes, a beer or six sounds good to me. These Waltham, Massachusetts trouble makers have been carrying on their jam for well over three years, how could these dudes have fell through them KLYAM cracks? Stranger things have happened.

Sometimes garage is like dull and Shaws bakery cookie cutter throwbacky and all that, but sometimes it just isn’t that. With The Shallow End Divers, It AINT, specially on their most recent single game Dead Man’s Ladder/Forget Your Problems, they fall in that fine camp of rock ‘n roll that is deceptively clean and nicely listenable yet also begs to be heard in a more wayward show setting. Been continuously streaming their 2013 EP Melting Skies and I feel like I’m at King Khan and the Shrines or something, all puppeyed and shit, basking in the ole soul. Doing alright, more than alright, thank you.

Shallow End Divers are good people, I bet right. Setting all the imprisoned free.
