Biography

Sometimes you get so pissed off the only way to cure yourself of the malady is through action, action with purpose, with consequence. Ranting and raving on the sidelines accomplishes dick. Only through direct action can you break free from the suck of an earthbound existence. Knuckle Yummy was born from such an anger, and through direct action, we blossomed.

In this day and age quality of life is not so quietly being stolen from us while we sleepwalk. This type of deadly oppression gave birth to the blues. Knuckle Yummy wears the modern day cloth of righteous indignation.

In an era where perfection is readily available, so utterly predictable, we embraced the danger of freefall collaboration, allowing the spirits to rise. You want real? We give you raw, unbridled access. You want grit? Sex? A rumblin’ funk? A big ass grin? Knuckle Yummy fare you well drips with the vitality of a life broken free from its moorings. From the edge we leapt, diving headlong into abandon's maw, and that much ain't gonna change. Ever.

More to come... indubitably. Root like a root hog meanwhile. Spread the gospel...

We exist in the mythical roadhouse where Led Zeppelin hogs the pool table, the Butthole Surfers are doing shots at the bar, and Tom Waits is scribbling notes in the corner.

We are a unique, totally original band. No one out there sounds quite like us. Period.

Lyrics

Catfish

Written By: Lizzie Lee

Well I...Well I...dreamed I was a catfish...rollin in the deep blue sea
With my rubber boots and my cheese-whiz
rollin after me ...rollin after me...scratchin after me

Well I...Well I...I swim on a dark green wave...ripplin and a swishin and a slide
Won't catch me...won't got to school now
I'm wallowin in my lazy catfish life
Wallowin...wallowin scratchin after me... rollin after me... rollin after me... wallowin... wallowin... after me

When the...When the...when the snow comes...I slide on ice-skates...I keep my whiskers nice and warm
Just a catfish...I keep on rollin...in the sea I feel at home...in the sea I feel at home
rollin after me ...rollin after me...scratchin after me...Wallowin...wallowin...wallowin... wallowin... wallowin... wallowin... wallowin... after me...in the deep... in the deep blue sea.
scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin scratchin

Set List

Changes every time we play. We are a highly improvisational band so one never knows where the muse will lead us. We mainly do originals (have 3 collections worth -18 songs), but will do a cover, too, if so inspired. We vibe on our audience and give back what they give us. Sets range from 40 minutes to one hour fifteen. That's all we need, and they're always wanting more...
