“Please (Don’t Let Me Lose My Mind)”

Problemo

Blankus Larry is such a great, great punk band.  Garage punk at it’s finest.  According to their press release;

Blankus Larry’s core songwriters, Bloody Larry (guitar/vocals) and Durdy Larry (drums), met and began recording music together in late 2008. Drawing inspiration from ‘50s surf, ‘60’s garage and psychedelic, ‘70’s glam and punk and ‘90’s indie rock, the two self-produced and released four EPs, including Scupper, Dirty White Melancholy Fades, Satellite Shrine and As Good as They Wanna Be, over the course of a year. After adding Cuzin Larry (bass), Marion Larry (guitar), Neon Larry (organ) and Dub Larry (percussion) to their live lineup, the band began playing shows at notable DC venues, such as The 9:30 Club, The Rock and Roll Hotel, and The Paperhaus, as well as Alchemy NFK in Virginia. Influences for Blankus Larry include The Kinks, The Cramps and The Stooges.

You can really hear Iggy and Lux pouring out of the pores of Bloody Larry with the song writing discipline of Ray Davies and John Lennon.  Not much more you can say about Blankus Larry.  Just listen and dance, you cretins.  The Ramones would be proud.
