Wetter & Better: the Get Wets Goods...& other garageslop goin's ons

Wow, the wildness just keeps whirlin' around fer the Get Wets...
If yer hip ya already know that Logan (aka DB) has rejoined the loopy group on the organs and we're gearin' up fer our fourth live, graceless get-down in Cola-town (which also happens to be our second show underground, at el Whig)...
& to slop the pops with a cherry on top, we are rarin' & darin' to drop some of our soul magic to the magnetic-tape in July (prepare yer hearin'-pipes, humanity!!)
...Like Wow, indubitably.

And on the flipside of the 45, wanted to beep everybody to the blast I had with my cohort in slop'n'bop crime (Ms. Anna) at the Milestone Club in Queen City, NC...
It was in fact the rare and rabid sightin' of the beast they call Nobunny!!!
But to get good & primed we were treated to the primitive and peppy poundin's of Pinche Gringo can he (with some help from his friends) really go-go, baby!
Even tried to make a deal with the Mr. Gringo to get him and the gang back down Columbi-Yeah's way fer some acción salvaje! Keep those fingers-flossed, kids!

Then like the Muppets gone mad, Nobunny & his hairy horde took the audience on a boppin' and bonkers rollick through the great rock'n'roll wilderness...I bopped a lil too much (my neck still ain't forgiven me), but boy was it ever a ball!

Nobunny himself swiped my very lighter to ignite the on-stage pyro...& I wasn't even expectin' special effects!! ...this kid gives the great shakes and lets the party people know punky pop still has a place in this weirdo world! Another group ya just gotta see live in a dive (nothin' knockin' the anti-glam of the Milestone, baby)...take it if ya can make it, kids...y'all can thank me later.

& yeah, I also saw a few songs by the salient Spits, but there was just too much smoke, choke and meatheaded-maulin' fer my taste...but altogether a real wild time worth the ride across the border.

Like Wild! the Mondellos Meet the Get Wets


See the Mondellos make mincemeat out of yer primitive passions!
See the Get Wets grope madly at yer immature inclinations!

...the kind of carnal and savage thing that before ya could only see in the pages of Nat'l Geographic!

& the world waits with baited, beer-stench'd breath...fer the rendezvous of raunch at el Whig! ...oh mother nature, do ya know no sin??

Watch in terror, June 19th...fer absolutely no scratch!

UPDATE: the Get Wets get press! ...a lil write-up action about the show from our friends over at the Free Times in the week of June 16 issue:

The Get Wets — Call it rhythm and booze, call it slop ‘n’ bop, call it ga-raunch. Call it what you will, but the Get Wets purvey a brand of extra-scuzzy, extra-raunchy, extra-wild brand of peppy, primitive garage rock (think ‘60s garage progenitors the Sonics) that’s heavy on fuzz bass, primal screams and punky pop tunes. It’s good for what ails you, and it’ll get you go-go dancing in no time flat. Similarly sloppy Atlanta garage-rock act the Mondellos open, and their brand of Tobacco Road-via-Bikini Beach surf-stomp is as potent as it comes.
