The Go-Nuts

The Go-Nuts

Dunk and Cover!

Lookout!

This is stoooopid with four ‘o’s. The first ‘o’ is granted for theming the band around an appropriately idiotic theme: Snack Foods. Playing songs about introducing lactic product to Asian cultures (“Cheese to China”) and twisting Van Halen to their nefarious purposes (“Hot for Twinkies”), the Go-Nuts know their empty calories, and they’re not afraid to show it.

The second ‘o’ is for dressing up like the real snak rock superstars they are, and engineering the right gear to get the job done. Like the SnakBlaster, a device that apparently uses compressed air to fire donuts at an alarming rate. The third ‘o’ is for picking lesser stupid songs to cover, like the aforementioned “Hot for Twinkies” and the Dickies’ “You Drive Me Ape (You Big Gorilla).” And the final ‘o’ goes not for having a Theme, but including it FOUR times in a record little over a half-hour long. The verdict? Hell yeah, bring it on. I could stand to gain a few pounds.
