ZZ Ryder touches base with GF

GYPSY FARM field reporter, ZZ RYDER sent this to our door step last week.   He tells tall tails of GF’s third release, an upcoming show at Georgia Theatre and what really get’s his “BLOOD BOILING”  : : : :

OO BABY SUMMER 2012! Please accept my introduction to Gypsy Farm Records’ 11-Bones-of- Blues garage album GYPSNOSIS because it is like a DRUGTRIP!! It features Athens punx The Humms, Rodney Kings, Ice Creams, along with other desolated souls who made it into the studio such as These Magnificent Tapeworms, Ghost Lights, and Uncle Skunkle. And I’m sure that every girl falls in love each time those sweet babeez hear those psychedelic hustlers The Rodney Kings hoss-howlin’ on “I Wanna Meet you”! As the first GFR album to be pressed on vinyl, these gypsy boo-nanas have climbed on up the Naked Monkey Staircase. This same rekkid will be headed all over the world, via CD and download as well. I wonder when the single track “Roller Derby Girl” could’ve even had its garagey coolness contained inside the GYPSY FARM studio, and still maintained its influence of strychnine each time you hear it —- maybe they’ve channeled Stiv Bators’ ghost. It’s so strange — way harder than grunge rock — more roots punk style. Not to mention, right now I’m remembering These Magnificent Tapeworms showing me how it’s done on multiple occasions live. Some of these recordings date back to 2008, but it’s clear that nothing’s changed there, coming out of the cloud of 2011. Continue reading “ZZ Ryder touches base with GF”

Twilight Zone this weekend in ATHENS


With this coming weekend being twilight and all, did you really think the HUMMS were going to be able to stand by? Maybe they were planning to, but the fine folks over at Quality Faucet Records (QFR, not to be confused with GFR) put together one lip smacking bill, featuring The Rodney Kings, Brothers, Co Co Rico, Woodfangs and The HUMMS. Get this, tickets are only $5 (7 if you’re 18-20). Doors at 8pm, show starts at 9pm. GET DOWN WITH IT. Click photo for Official QFR Event page.

GF003 in works

GYPSY FARM is gearing up to make it’s third release, a compilation of recordings from our studio ranging from 2008-2012. Plans for Vinyl and CD are underway.

While the boys over in the studio sector of GF are keeping awefully quiet about this one, no release date has been made available as of yet but we are told that the compilation will be presented under the name of “GYPNOSIS” and feature 5 bands, including two new tunes from THE HUMMS! Stay TOON’d
