Fun, funny music in a genre bending variety of styles to keep you grooving and moving. Punk, hard rock, reggae, country? yeah, we got that. Songs about worshiping Satan with Juile Andrews, sure. Why not. A reggae tune about emergency bowel movements. Yup. New York Dolls meets Weird Al. Amen

Biography

Gnarlene and the Frisky Pigs formed in the Spring of 2011. Talented songwriter Gnarlene hooked up with neighbor Steve Lindsey to work on songs from Gnarlene's 2008 release Blood & Treasure. Curtis and Dave soon came aboard on bass and Drums and the thing jelled.
Onstage the band sports a trashy/glam look and feel, with Gnarlene in a pink wig and gem sweater, Steve sporting his buttoned down look and Cthulu fez, and Curtis and Dave holding down the rhythms and looking casually strange.
Smart, catchy original tunes and a smattering of well chosen covers from Iggy Pop to Nancy Sinatra, this band will leave you wanting more more more.

She's Got A Fast One

Written By: Gnarlene

She’s Got A Fast One

She's got a fast one she knows she's got a busy one, she's got a fast one she know's it very well (repeats once)

She'll come into your town and then she'll mess you all around
Causin' trouble where she can and try to steal somebody’s man.
Now your sorry that you met her
The cops are out to get her
But she’ll steal another car
And then she’s tearin’ out again

She don't care about the state of the nation,
She don't give a shit about conservation
She's just a wave in the new migration
She's just a part of the new sensation

She's got a look you gotta see, a fashion free labotomy
Her jewel encrusted sweater man she's wearin' it to hell
She's got a fast one she knows she's got a busy one, she's got a fast one she know's it very well

She don't care about the state of the nation,
She don't give a shit about conservation
She's just a wave in the new migration
She's just a part of the new sensation

She's got a fast one she knows she's got a busy one, she's got a fast one she know's it very well (repeats twice)

Look out now Captain Kirk, the Klingons are attackin’
Ain’t no thang Mr. Spock, just call on Frank McKracken
He’s the man with the plan
He’ll put it into action
Drop to his knees
And give ya satisfaction

He’s a one man show, a disco dynamo
Ya ought to see him struttin’
At the Star Fleet A Go Go
Clackin’ gold chains
And shakin his buns
He’s got a phaser in his trousers and he sets it on stun

Frank McKracken

Now all the girls think he’s cool cause he hangs out with thugs
And all the guys dig him too because he’s got the best drugs
He waxes up his head until it’s real shiny
Them blue suede flairs really flatter his heiny

Frank McKracken

Get down and scratch Frank, now spin on your head
You’re over fifty now and soon you’ll be dead
And so get out on the floor
And dance some more
You know the reaper’s comin soon
He’s gonna settle your score

Chick with the 2 toned hair

Written By: Gnarlene

The Chick with the two-toned hair

Well, a woman is a thing of beauty
Well, she's a thing of mystery
And if you get 'em figured out
Won't you pass it on to me
Well, if you got a one like mine
Better watch your p's and q's
I guess you'd call her the jealous kind
And she's got some real sharp shoes

Ow, baby.. say what you tryin' to do
Well, don't you know there ain't another woman in the bar, that looks as good as you
Ow, sweetheart... say why'd you kick me down there
Oh baby, you're mistooken, lord I wasn't even lookin'
At the chick with the two-toned hair

Well it's lady's night on tuesdays
And there's beauceau scenery
But my girls done worked my shinbone
Into a state of misery
Well there's some sights to see here
But I, ain't gonna call her bluff
I gotta look away quicker, cause my baby's a kicker
And my shinbones ain't that tough

Ow, baby.. say what you tryin' to do
Well, don't you know there ain't another woman in the bar, that looks as good as you
Ow, sweetheart... say why'd you kick me down there
Oh baby, you're mistooken, lord I wasn't even lookin'
At the chick with the two-toned hair

Eat Your Bamboo

Written By: Gnarlene

Eat Your Bamboo

Well, don't you wanna be big and fat like me?
I'm a plump and pleasant Panda don't you see?
Well, there's some things you gotta do
Stop smokin' crack and sniffin' glue
Cause that kind of shit's not good for you

Oh oh oh oh
Just eat your bamboo
(repeats 3x)

Do you wanna get cancer, scurvy and leprosy?
Well, just keep smokin' that crack and then you'll see
You're skin'll fall off and your hair'll turn blue
You'll shake and bake, never wanna screw
Cause that kind of shit ain't good for you

Oh oh oh oh
Just eat your bamboo
(repeats 3x)

Well, there's some things you gotta do
Stop smokin' crack and sniffin' glue
Cause that kind of shit's not good for you

Oh oh oh oh
Just eat your bamboo
(repeats 3x)
