"Jammin with the Naked Karate Girls"

The big boss man “Pickle” himself first told us about this band. “They are the best band I’ve seen in a while... we’re getting them over here and you guys have to come check it out... if you like the Menus you’ll really like these guys... they are very energetic the whole show, sometimes they’re just plain crazy... it’s always fun.”
I guess you might say Pickle was the talent scout on this one, he did good.
Billed as “Naked Karate Girls” this four piece packs a comedic punch into their kata. Think Second City Saturday Night Live vibes with an 80’s pop sound track just jammin’ and that will get your mind right about the NKG.
We saw the show (you can see it too at eastsidevibe.com) and after getting our thoughts together we decided no one could describe the Naked Karate Girls better than themselves, here’s the interview.



EV: First off introduce the band and tell us where your from.

NKG: We are all originally from Lake Oakauchokaubeech in upstate New Jersey.
TeePee (da suspect) is da lead singer. He is da master of disguise and is always out-smarting Mustang, Ponch and Lt. Jack Woo. Whedar he is stealthily dressed as a forward for da Harlem Globetrotters, a game show host, Easter bunny or member of Run DMC, his disguises change so quick dat even his real identity has been lost and he now lives in his own undercover party world. His favorite drink is Tab and 151.
Mustang is da guitarist. An understudy of Burt Reynolds and Erik Estrada, Mustang provides da pelvic thrusts and guitar daatrics for da Party Force. His stylish bouffant and slick leadar digs give Mustang da perfect uniform to catch dat crazy sucka TeePee. His favorite drink is can Schlitz beer.
Ponch is da bass player. He is da youngest member of da NHRA and CIA in history. Ponch can commonly be seen at da Playboy mansion, courtside at many Lakers games, or working head of security for Victoria Secret runway shows. His favorite drink is Folgers and Johnnie Walker, on da rocks.
Lieutenant Jack Woo is da drummer. His hands are registered as legal weapons. He has black belts in Taekwondo, Tang Soo Do and Shiatsu Massage (for da ladies) give Lt. Woo da dexterity to serve da stealthiest of drum beats. He smells like moth balls and Old Spice. His Favorite drink is Scotch and Pepto Bismol.



EV: Where did you get started playing at and where did you go from there (or dare to you).

NKG: We all joined da Party Force in 1980 back upstate but relocated to Cincinnati in June, 2008 to save da world from boring bands.

EV: What influences were inspiration in creating your band’s imaginative image.

NKG: Image? Why does everyone think our mustaches are fake?

EV: Give us a rundown of what we’ll hear at a Naked Karate Girls show?
NKG: 80’s big hair, hip hop, rock and roll…and a little funk for da ladies.



EV: How do you choose tunes for your set list?

NKG: We just play whatever songs are fun and gets people dancing and singing. We try to be very interactive with our audience. NKG is better than any other band in town because we don’t play all the same lame songs all the other lame bands play. We have a ‘No Blister In the Sun or Paralyzer’ guarantee.

EV: What have been your favorite clubs to play and what is next in the New Year?

NKG: Dare are a LOT of fun clubs, so dat’s a hard question. But in Cincinnati we like Jefferson Hall, Rhino’s, Backyard Bar and Turfway Park. Next year we are going to take da NKG jetcopter up to Put-in-Bay at the Boathouse Bar, and down to Key West Florida at Sloppy Joe’s.




EV: Is it true that Lieutenant Jack Woo is actually a retired multi millionaire that gets his gits & shiggles by beating those drums and partying at the bar? Some say he is known to buy the entire house a round when he gets a notion. Can you confirm these accounts or is it all just wishful thinking.

NKG: Nothing is confirmed but rumor has it dat Lt. Jack Woo was da inventor of da Motorola DynaTAC brick phone in 1983. He was also da sole heir to his half-brother’s estate, game show mogul Merv Griffin. Lt. Woo has been known to buy da entire house a round of Crown, but only when country music is on da juke box.

EV: Finally, how did you come about that name and do you feel ashamed of letting all the guys down who came in and paid the cover thinking there would really be 6 little cuties on the dance floor butt naked and waxed doing a roundhouse combo for all to see and admire, only to find it’s really just 4 crazy guys (one in drag) and no karate at all?

NKG: Aaron Thomas, da singer of Da Whammies suggested da name. You will not see naked girls at our show, but you will see a lot of ladies dancing on da dance floor and on da NKG party pole. But da band will karate kick you right in da jib dib every time.

EV: When are we going to see you out here on the eastside in the coming months?

NKG: Da Naked Karate Girls will be back at Rhino’s on Saturday January 17th.

We’ll be there with bells on, video camera in hand. If we can spring for the driver we’ll even share a few shots with you all.

Da Party Force will be happy to buy da first round.

Dank you for da interview.
