Timmy's Organism Get Up, Get Out / The Thrill Is Gone on 7" Vinyl
Working with Timmy Vulgar and his outfit Timmy's Organism means yet another dream come true for Third Man Records. Fronting some of the most original, compelling and unpredictable bands (not only in Detroit, but the world) for over two decades, Tim Lampinen's work with the Epileptix, Clone Defects, and Human Eye has always held a rapturous cult following.
Yet his work with his current trio, Timmy's Organism, presents Lampinen (aka Timmy Vulgar) along with bassist Jeff Giant and drummer Blake "Bovver" Hill, ready for their close-up. With new album, Heartless Heathen the group touches on their artistic and spiritual forbears of Captain Beefheart and Destroy All Monsters, while amply ramping up the slop culture rapture of classic punk 'n' roll like Chrome, Crime, and the Damned as well as contemporaries like Thee Oh Sees.
There's a reason why Lampinen won a $25,000 Kresge Grant for his work with his bands. He creates music that borders on art, live shows that border on theater. It's high time the rest of the world take notice beginning with Heartless Heathen's first single "Get Up, Get Out b/w "The Thrill Is Gone" which comes pressed on 7" vinyl.
