Bands I Missed - THE AQUABATS!
The Aquabats! YES, these guys dress up as superheroes, fight Supervillains, and have an infectious sound. This is my kinda band! So how come I didn’t get into them? Well, the band formed in 1994, the year after I graduated from college. By then I was outta touch with all things musical (musical to me that is) as much of my time was spent away from the west coast. Lets just say I was forced to listen to country music and Oompa bands… so I just wasn’t aware. *sniff* Anyway, I know about the Aquabats now and love their music and their shtick. To be honest, I discovered them back in February but I thought this video was a great Halloween tune. So I waited until October. It’s called Fashion Zombies. It’s my hope that this song gets included in the Halloween rotation from now on.
Incidentally, The Aquabats will be in Portland on Nov 27. At the Wonder Café See here I marking my calendar.
Here is a demo the band produced in 1999 to get the networks interested in funding a series. it’s called "The Aquabats in COLOR!" Too bad it wasn’t picked up. Even a pilot would have been great! Ah what could have been…
