Me First And The Gimme Gimmes Are We Not Men? We Are Diva! on LP + Download
After spreading their wings a bit on the Sing In Japanese EP, punk super-group and cover band extraordinaire Me First And The Gimme Gimmes is back to the comfy confines of singing in their native tongue with the release of their first full-length studio album in 8 years, Are We Not? We Are Diva! As the title implies, their latest offering tackles the soaring refrains of 12 of the most beloved divas in music.
Celine, Cher, Madonna, Christina, Boy George...all the greats, done up in the way that only the punk rock prima donnas from the Gimmes can. Soothing and forgettable backing tracks are proudly swapped out for upbeat drums, nimble bass lines, ripping guitar leads, and naturally the tongue in check delivery that has become the Gimmes calling card.
With front man Spike Slawson's silky smooth singing he gives the ladies a serious run for their money. And talk about a diva. Have you see the guy's platinum coif? Trust us, this album is legit. One listen and you'll agree that the Gimmes are indeed diva! Vinyl includes digital download of full album.
