HAPPY FRIDAY! Here for your enjoyment is Missy performing with her old punk / noise / no-wave band, THE GETAWAY BUGS, at her own big BIRTHDAY BASH at CHATHAM COLLEGE, back in 1999. You’ll have to excuse the graininess of the video – it was recorded on my digital camera off our TV, from an already grainy VHS recording. I uploaded them to YouTube a while ago, but never got around to posting about them. There was much much more spectacular footage on the videotape, believe me (six or seven other bands performed at Missy’s party that night to a packed house) but I just taped my two favorite moments: The Getaway Bugs playing their “hit” song, “SCIENCE FICTION” – Missy’s ode to BILL NYE, THE SCIENCE GUY, which she originally did with an older band of hers called TUMMYBUG – and Missy on feedback duty, forcing her guitar into distorted yelps and moans. Missy organized the show at Chatham College, an all-women ivy league-style University in Pittsburgh and the show line-up featured mostly all-female or female-fronted bands. A ton of people showed up and judging from the action on the videotape, it was a stellar night out…
Missy has just officially released a limited-edition 3″ cdr of one of her old bands, THE GETAWAY BUGS, and she has them for sale at her webstore, MISSYKULIK.COM…get ’em while they’re hot and in supply, because once they’re gone, they’re gone for good! The release comes with tons of little inserts and features the following song titles:
Trouble at the Panthenon
Inventions of the March Hair
Hot Chocolate Youth
Sham Rock (Shake!)
Lullabye for Darth Vader
Hot Chocolate Youth (version)
Needless to say, the entire package is CUTE. You just gotta have it!…if you just happen to be a fan of Missy’s other music projects – TUMMYBUG, SUGAR COOKIE, THE FRENCH TOASTS – then this rare gem definitely needs to be part of your collection. So, wax up your board and surf the no-wave into twee noise oblivion with THE GETAWAY BUGS!…for more information go HERE…
Here’s a quick post to let you know that we have some new FRENCH TOASTS related items up for sale at MISSY KULIK.COM…Missy’s got a few French Toasts button sets (featuring our floating heads) left over from our last performance, along with the 13th volume of our zine thing, FRENCH IT UP!
Also coming soon, is a 3″ CD release of Missy’s very first band, THE GETAWAY BUGS, a band she did in Pittsburgh with her good friend Jordan Weeks. Missy is still working on some of the inserts, but the CD should be available before the end of this weekend:
