iTunes Editors’ Notes

That Gas House Gorillas take their name from a Bugs Bunny cartoon should offer a clue that this Brooklyn quintet bring a certain zaniness to their music. But there’s more to the band than a goofy moniker and a cheeky attitude, as their sophomore album, Punk Americana, reveals. The Gorillas deftly fuse ‘30s-style jump blues with rockabilly and punk, producing a kinetic blend that suggests Louis Jordan jamming with Eddie Cochran under Joe Strummer's direction. Frontman/chief songwriter Rick Fink radiates a manic gusto as he romps with his group through tales of love, lust, and heartache. Likewise crucial to the proceedings are Dan Alvaro’s carnal sax squawks and Jimmy Prav’s yeasty mix of jazz, blues, and surf rock guitar licks. Punk Americana touches on every facet of the band’s sound, with sweat-raising rockers like “Kitty Has Klaws” interspersed with swinging jazzy numbers like “Cookin’ at Home” and sultry Latin ballads like “Remember.” A rockabilly remake of Cheap Trick’s “I Want You to Want Me” is propelled by the relentless rhythms of upright bassist Crusher Carmean and drummer Joe Geary.
