Dayayayayay 263: Dananananaykroyd – There Is A Way

18 Nov

Muscle Memory

Let’s get you all caught up.  I listened to Dananananaykroyd’s first record when The Swole was in its infancy, loved it (the album), and proceeded to forget about it. That’s been the story with quite a few records over the past 263 days, unfortunately, but I guess that’s bound to happen with a project like this.  I cared enough to give the band a “like” on Facebook, though, which meant that I heard all about the release of this particular record through numerous status updates.  That was way back in June.  Then the band announced that they would be breaking up after a final European tour.  I think that was back in September.  Now, it’s November, and I need a record to listen to.

I’m actually a bit saddened by the fact that I’ll never be able to see these guys live.  A quick YouTube search of their shows leads me to believe that they were extremely fun (i.e. plenty of moshing, but not with people that look like they want to end a few lives).  That’s what this type of music is going to lead to—it’s indie pop/rock with some hardcore elements—and I really wish that there were more of it in existence. There are a few breakdowns and a bit of screaming, which blends surprisingly well with the often-joyous vibe given off by the band’s lyrics.

Believe me, had these guys ever embarked on a U.S. tour, I most definitely would have attended a show.  Maybe they’ll reform one day.  Or maybe they’ve decided that they have had enough of that ridiculous name, and will be reforming under a better one next week.

    Dayayayayay 263. That’s a good one. I hope they come back too, with a different name. The one they’ve chosen is just too hard.

      I don’t think that these guys are going for easy. I foresee a spin-off group named Johnbubububelushi”. A bootlegged concert recording will be released as “Bububububelushi Comes Alive.”

    I do like the song and the video. I think they’re sending up Okay Go.

    […] a pretty good track record so far.  I’ve fallen in love with Johnny Foreigner, Dananananaykroyd (RIP), and The Beautiful South, all at his (indirect) suggestion. Plus, Slow Club is pretty good too.  […]
