So I was writing about the White Stripes and kids yesterday and look at this picture. This is a kid band and by that I don’t mean, kid’s band, although sure, could be that too, but no, I mean they are kids in a band, with some adult, probably a parent, creating the music. They are called ShiSho. The song, Get Behind Me Santa, is cute and not in a too annoying way. I love the squeaky voice in the middle telling the "jokes." Other kid bands include the Trachtenburg Family Sideshow Players, but hey, the little girl in that band is not singing, she's playing drums. I’m very familiar with another kid band, Rock Jack, because the singer Ezra Lux, is my nephew. He's four. Years old. They got lots of press and he’s quite the superstar on his Mission neighborhood playground. Do you want to listen to this over and over? Probably not. Do you want to play it for someone because it’s kind of funny? Maybe. And hey, the kids might love it and get all inspired on your arse.
Shisho, “Get Behind Me Santa”
Trachtenburg Family Sideshow Players, “Eggs”
Rock Jack, “Toilet Master”
Shisho has a web page and a My Space page. The Trachtenburg Family have a site and a My Space page. Rock Jack has a My Space page too. Who doesn’t? Me, that’s who. Then again, I got two blogs and a buncha websites.
