THE GONKS

FIVE THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE GONKS

ROCKS IN YOUR HEAD / MIDHEAVEN


Format: LP
Cata No: RIYH003
Barcode: 767870659539
The lyrics to The Gonks instrumental track “I’m Dead”
say it all. In the tradition of the Tronics, the Subsonics, the
Gories and going back to the Dixie Cups, The Gonks arrive
with a seventeen minute record of ten songs hacked down
to the bare minimum, led by teenager singers Ave Lynch
on drums and Sami Perez on bass, who tell the tale of
lonely trams, lone wolfs, midnight loners, very alone types,
loners, double loners and lonesome alone folk. If Leonard
Cohen wrote songs about getting hit by a car for bubble
gum bands, or Jonathan Richman wrote heartfelt songs
about his mom for The Shaggs, one would have The Gonks.
Produced at Studio Bonk by Sonny Smith of Sonny & The
Sunsets for his new label Rocks In Your Head Records,
this band eschews the glossy over-shiny pop that pervades
the rock ’n’ roll world these days and reject all the crooningover-quasi-prog-rock of late and go minimal. “Am I just a
sewage pipe, living in the dirt? Sometimes I feel like I might
burst, but I’ll just leak a little first....” from the titular single
“I’m A Leaker” explains where these damaged loners are
coming from.
