Electric Tickle Machine – Gimme Money/Blew It Again

Gimme Money! I see something that I want…”

Meant to post this yesterday but I went to the Giants game to see the men in blue bully the Raiders, then the Yankees destroy the Twins. Gotta love being from New York.

Anyways, Electric Tickle Machine is one of my top five favorite unsigned bands right now. I saw them perform at a f o r t h e b e a t party a few months back and let me just go on the record once again to say that these guys are the real mother trucking deal, they rock hard and have probably the most entertaining hype man/tambourine player/original gangster I’ve seen on stage in a long time. E.M.P.T. is sponsoring a CMJ Party for ABC News Amplified at Public Assembly in Brooklyn and Electric Tickle Machine will be one of the bands playing, I highly recommend all the NY readers come rock out, I’ll have an official post about that up soon. In the mean time check out the Facebook event here: forthebeat Presents CMJ Party for Amplified

I got an email announcing their new album and tour and I couldn’t have described it better myself it better myself…

We’re so excited to share Electric Tickle Machine’s shiny debut album with you this week! Available on vinyl w/ digital download on tour (limited to 500) and shortly from Insound, Blew It Again is the kind of record that transports you to anywhere else but where you are now. Four free spirits playing psychedelic fuzz drenched anthems for the misguided generation. ETM’s songs take our reality — identity crises, media saturation — and turn it into something you can dance to. Catch them performing tunes from Blew It Again on their upcoming US tour, making a pit stop at CMJ in NYC.
