Here Comes Summer…..

Sure,
every time this year,
as temps and spirits begin to rise
and the time gets right for doing
something in the street,

we could So easily get
laid back and lost within the usual grooves
of those Beach Boys,
Jan and/or Dean,
Fantastic Baggys (!!!)
or even Los Nooney Rickett Four.

but,
If you’re ready for a brand new beat instead
all this summer long,

May I suggest you tune on, log in,
turn up and hang at least 10dB
right over there at
Gary Pig Gold dot com,

thanx to our very hot pals
dba Zuzula, that is.

Listen !!

Simply Saucer

As stated before,

Hamilton, Ontario, Canada’s
one and only
Beefheart/Seeds/Floyd/Velvets-even
uber-amalgamation
(aka Simply Saucer)

have recently reformed, relaunched,
recorded and now actually released
their first “official” album in, oh,
say three-and-a-half-decades or so,
give or take.

and
Said sounds can now be streamed,
sampled,
purchased,
and/or experienced fully live

by any and all
willing to leave preconceptions,
not to mention pigeonholes,
firmly in the half past.

Just be sure to tell ‘em
Gary Pig sentcha….

Sweet Relief

I am so very, very pleased
to have been able to join
not only The Next Big Thing,
Ghost Rockets,
and Dave Rave Group slash Conspiracy

but over seventy (Count ‘em!) other
most powerfully poppin’ combos
…..including KLAATU even

all in the aid
of a more than good cause:

Jam Records’ benefit CD
for the Hurricane Katrina victims.

now,
Please do
your fairest share as well,
won’t you?

Relief never sounded
quite so good.

Simply Gary

 

On my latest scarred trek back
to The Most Musical Town in All of O Canada,

I fortunately found myself
right there in the studio audience
as none other than Simply Saucer
laid tracks towards
their first “new” album in, well,
thirty-some-odd years.

Even got
to appear in an up-coming documentary
on The Little Band That Could
to boot !

Much More News
to come,

so
Stay Completely Tuned,
lost groovers…..
