The Gaye Blades- "Don't Get Married"

New Tracksadmin2 Comments

Here's a track from a new collaborative project featuring musicians from two of the best garage rock acts out there right now: Black Lips and Gentleman Jesse and His Men.

The Gaye Blades' first album is out now on Norton Records, and the track "Don't Get Married" alone makes picking it up worth it.

The chord progression and vocal melodies call out to rock 'n' roll's golden age--you know, a time when guys like Chuck Berry reigned supreme. However, the recording style and personality is lo-fi, filthy, and new. The song's subject matter is where most of the magic happens, though. The lyrics' violent threats--including kicking the groom in the nuts--are hysterical, and remind me why I follow the exploits of these bands in the first place.
