Vegetable is a salty sweet blend of Rock inspired by Rock. Vegetable Rock is a mixture of Classic Rock, Stoner Rock, Garage Rock, and Pop Rock inspired bands such as Queens of the Stone Age, Ween, and The Pixies. We are danceable, visual down to earth and memorable. We love to play.

Biography

Vegetable formed in a sweaty root cellar in the summer of 2007. That winter they recorded their first session “Living Room” independently whilst watching television. The sound they found was a musky blend of Stoner Rock and Existential Power Pop marbled with hints of an underground current they dubbed Neon Country.
Songs like Glossolalia, Fortunate Cookie, Ra! and Billy Biscuit (and the Birth of Neon Country) propelled Vegetable forward into the 2008 Deadwood Derby battle of the bands competition where their music was aptly compared to Ween, The Pixies, as well as Queens of the Stone Age.
Vegetable performed admirably and placed 3rd out of 16 bands.
Basking in the afterglow of success they enjoyed a steady flow of gigs, sharing the bill with national, regional and local acts like Run Run Run, AutoVaughn, Guse, Neil Hamburger, Bacon Shoe, and The Canvas. Vegetable accepted several separate invitations to play a popular series of Ween tribute shows.
In the spring of 2009 Vegetable harnessed its power to record a second album in a guerilla studio named Mixtape Meditations, after which the studio collapsed and swallowed itself. During their sessions, Vegetable was delighted to experiment with the wonders of studio magi. Accordingly Vegetable honed its sound down to an edge barely visible to the human eye. They managed to mesh the sincerity of Classic Rock and 90’s Garage Rock in such a way that their parents were proud and they felt cool. Vegetables second album awaits release. But soon very soon Vegetable will plunge into the youthful hearts of millions and uplift those who have been looking for something new to listen to.
Currently Vegetable gigs in the Lawrence, Kansas City, Manhattan area and has plans to expand its act into a regional tour by the end of 2010.

Glossolalia

Written By: Vegetable

Glossolalia pseudo sueno panacea
Echo. Glossolalia. Glossolalia.
So! Glossolalia pseudo sueno panacea
Echo. Glosso, glosso, glosso. glossolalia.

Glosso...Glossolalia
Sueno panacea
Glosso...Glossolalia
Sueno panacea

Glossolalia pseudo sueno panacea

Shaking like a babbling brook,
Speaking like a leaf on a tree,
Bishop caught a fish on hook,
A new country club member...

It's not the first time,
It won't be the last time
a salesman performs a magic trick.
Disillusion
brought on by willful ignorance
will help you walk on water
cause' it's frozen.
It's not the first time.
It's gonna be the last time
a sales man will speak in baby-talk,
cause' Mommy and Daddy
keep fighting
over which one is depressed.

Billy Biscuit and the Birth of Neon Country

Written By: Vegetable

Billy Biscuit

Broke the Ice Age, I pissed in the snow,
Jumped on mu’ steed, now I’m out on the road.
Yeah I got an idea I got a big dream
Let me tell you a little something ‘bout reality.
It’s a frisky chimera with a bucktooth smile
Sold its soul to American Idol.
Man I don’t watch nothing I shot mu’ TV,
When I catch on fire, stop drop and role.

Hey! Whoa! Neon Country!

Shoveling shit and drinking beans
Swapped mu’ sauce for a pair neon jeans
Cause I shit out a rib and I made her mu’ bride.
She licked my dog and baked me a pie.
She was coffee stained lips, skinny cream corn,
Disco ball tits and sequin eyes.
She wanted some kids. So I built her a barn
And threw a square dance for a million barflies.

Dance! Dance! Dance! Dance!

I found my next meal ‘cause I followed a hearse
I got wasted in the desert when I stopped at the church.
They were serving wine with biscuits and gravy
And gave me mu’ name cause I was so hungry
They were snorting wax and shooting bugs
I wear a flack jacket when I cut up the rug.
I don’t trust no one no how nowhere
I stole my guitar and made a mountain of gold.

Set List

We are an ideal opening or support act. We have a high energy 45 minute set. But we have enough material to comfortably round out an hour. We play mostly original songs and we also incorporate anywhere from 1 to 4 cover songs depending on the venue.
