Here are ten things I know (sort of) about the Gonks’ new album Five Things You Didn’t Know About The Gonks:
- They are out of San Francisco.
- There are 2 or 4 members?
- Ave Lynch plays drums and Sami Perez plays bass.
- Their new record has been on constant rotation since arriving at the 3hive Record Lounge.
- They have very witty lyrics.
- They play an off the wall brand of lo-fi garage-pop.
- Eric K. thinks they sound like Habibi – I think he’s right.
- The album consists of 10 songs in 16 glorious minutes.
- The album is released on Sonny Smith’s label Rocks In Your Head.
- I think Sonny Smith (unverified) sings on some of the tracks.
Five Things You Didn’t Know About The Gonks is out now via Rocks In Your Head. You can also pick it up at the 3hive Record Lounge. Five Things… is a fabulous record that needs to be heard. Enjoy a spin of “Hot Sick Vile and Fun” and “Nuns Having Fun” below.
