Biography

Get Licious was formed in Southern California not long ago.

Touted as a "recommended event" by Timeout New York Magazine, Get Licious has been described as "a ghetto fabulous good time in an East Village kind of way".

They have performed with Jonny Lives! (now in heavy rotation on NYC and UK radio stations), Danglers (NYC Punk Princes), and J Records golden boy Gavin DeGraw (whose debut recently went Gold.) Gavin's favorite Get Licious tune is 'Bitch Stole My Hummus'.

The LA Times writes, "(this)...act, that has shared stages with Kelis and comedian Dave Chapelle, among others, combines elements of funk, rock, reggae, and hip-hop."

Flavorpill LA writes, "Their inventive storytelling, humor, and thoroughly danceable style has already won them a fiercely loyal left-coast audience."

Music Connection Magazine writes, "...musically it's challenging... the skill level in the group is high. The players are all top-notch and perform well together...one gets the feeling that Get Licious is a group of naughty little boys trying to impress everyone with their scathing wit... musically this is a fine band with cool ideas. But, other than that, Get Licious is decidedly uncool, and in dire need of an attitude adjustment." (amen)

In collaboration with legendary producer Mike 'Miguel' Happoldt (Sublime, Long Beach Dub-All Stars, Slightly Stoopid) Get Licious is currently recording an EP to be released this summer.

Get Licious would like to thank sponsors Redroom Creative, Robert Graham Clothing, MGM Studios, and Liquid Theory.

Bedroom Window

Written By: Matty Wise

o shit hey, who are you lookin through my
(bedroom window)
and tell me why you're up here wavin hi
(in case you didn't know)
it's illegal for you to be up here lookin through my
(bedroom window)
I know you'd like to stay for awhile but I
(think you better go)

and don't you
go spyin on me
and always tellin me
you're so so sorry
why can't you realize

you ain't my biscuit anymore

o shit hey who are you climbin through my
(bedroom window)
and tell me why you're going through my drawers lookin for money
(in case you didn't know)
the restraining order said 500 feet from my
(bedroom window)
and I've got your parole officer on the line
(I think you better go)

and don't you
go stealin from me
and always tellin me
you're so so sorry
why can't you realize

you ain't my biscuit anymore

but then you
started
actin
just a little bit crazy
I'm in a hospital bed
bandage round my head and the
details are kinda hazy
you did somethin really mean to me

and you landed yourself in New York State's worst penitentiary

now that you're back in the bighouse how's the size of your
(bedroom window)
and tell me why you're back inside
(in case you didn't know)
you tried to throw me through my own
(bedroom window)
did you really really really really think I could fly?
(I think you better go)
did you really really really really think I could fly?
(I think you better go)
did you really really really really think I could fly?

no I can't

I don't know whether it's comin fast or slow
but time is trailin me
so what's been failin me
Is today only just the start of what it's gonna be
and will it come easily

No No No No...
No No No No.

No No No No...
No No No No.

Can we ever really know just what we oughtta be
With utmost sincerity
Is today only just the starta whatits gonna be
and will it come easily

No No No No...
No No No No.

And I know
Tomorrow won't come lookin
To take us to the place, it promises to be
That's why we go out and find it
That baby you gonna see
I don't know whether it's comin fast or slow
but I been sailin free
happy on the stormy sea n
Should we know where to go
that's not what it oughtta be
It's such a fuckin fallacy

No No No No...
No No No No.

No No No No...
No No No No.

Dollar signs on the mind
That's not what it oughtta be
It's not a happy way to be
Up and down like a chart
With so much frequency
And such negativity

No No No No...
No No No No.

And there's so much goin on
in the life out there
but that just wouldn't be fun
if it was fair

That's why we go out and find it
Go out and find it
That baby you gonna see

Ladadadadadada

That baby you gonna see

We Are

Written By: Matty Wise

we are, the music makers, the dreamers of dreams
beginnings and ends
and lovers and friends
and all in between
it was all for a smile
it's all been worthwhile
let me be your courtjester
baby you be my queen

we are, the dancin few, the old and the new
the lovers of life
the tried and the true
we are, the circus in town, the ups and the downs
baby it's been, such a dream knowin you

and then you, ask me could I have
lived just a little bit different
and then you, ask me could I have
done just a little bit more
and then you, ask me could I have
loved just a little bit different
and then you, ask me should I have
been just a little more sure

I'd say...

we are
the artist and muse
a spark on the fuse
sights and sounds
content to confuse
freedom's only freedom if it's
somethin you use
and baby it's been
such a dream knowin you

and then you, ask me could I have
lived just a little bit different
and then you, ask me could I have
done just a little bit more
and then you, ask me could I have
loved just a little bit different
and then you, ask me should I have
been just a little more sure
