Thanks to all that joined us @ Monkeytown Sunday, March 16, 2008 for a
double dose of dueling duos. First was Edison Rocket Train, shuffling
the blues like a pair of raunch hands pokin' cattle at a supersonic
hay ride. Their 45 minute set blasted off amidst Irving Klaw wrestling
films and pints of Chimay.
the beasts from the East, the emperors of eleki, Los Wakamonos
made their U.S. debut. Los Wakamonos' primitive GS fuzz beat
blew minds and a few eardrums (many people only took their fingers
out of their ears to frantically applaud between songs).
and after the bands there were the video clips. Though we had
a bit of technical difficulty with one of the DVD players, and
couldn't show just a few of the things we promised, there was
still enough video madness to slack jaws and blur eyes. There
were too many great ones to recall 'em all.
you were there I'm sure you have several favorites still kicking
around inside your brain. Many have sited the myriad Butch Willis
tidbits as the high point(s), while others have suggested the
Sleep "Dragonaut" video, Suburban Lawns live rendition
of "Janitor", the Meatmen making fun of Kraut, Bad
News' "Warriors of Genghis Khan" video, the John Fahey
from "Guitar, Guitar", and the list goes on.
a big thanks once again to everyone who came & made this
Fancy! Clip Party a roaring success. But thanks most of all to
Los Wakamonos for traveling half-way around the world to rattle
our cages. Look for their 4 song EP on our very own Go Ape! Records
coming this Fall. Woo Hoo!
