Oh Lost Lake, a wondrous trove of cheap salty beer, greasy hair, and old movies. This set the scene for the aging punk rockers known as the Gamits. The owls got lost on their way, maybe they were distracted by the smell of pineapples and expired coconuts. Instead came a mixture of old fans and drunkin punk rockers. What was most surprising was the energy. As I recall at punk shows people get riled up and engage in sweaty bone cracking body mashing. The men must have all put on their chicken pants and left the moshing to the ladies. The center of the crowd was a beacon of joy and energy, but all around the edges the air was sullen. Was this because the Gamits fans are getting grumpy in their old age, or could it be punk rock really is dead? Are we really seeing the last of the mullets, a dying breed?
My buddy The Teej showed me this last night. He does a lot of great artwork with animal/human combinations so he was naturally juiced about the video below for the Ramona Falls (ex-Menomena's Brent Knopf's new outfit) song "I Say Fever." I really enjoy the linear detail of the vintage drawings. The video is directed by Stefan Nadelman. Watch for the stopmotionstrutting hunter around 2:05, followed by an incredible armed duel. The video was done in 2009 following the release of the album "Intuit" on Barsuk Records.
