Seattle Kindie Rockers THE NOT-ITS! have a new record called KIDQUAKE! hitting retail on February 5th, and to get the buzz moving, my friend Jeff over at Out With the Kids launched their new video yesterday. “Busy” is a song “about the chaos of our daily lives,” and a rockin’ jam at that. I’ve got a copy of the new record here at HQ, so look for a proper review on The Rock Father shortly. In the meantime, check out the new video from THE NOT-ITS! below…
Curious about the rock and parenting chops of THE NOT-ITS!?
Lead singer Sarah Shannon was also lead vocalist of lauded ‘90s indie-pop band Velocity Girl (on Seattle’s Sub Pop label) and has since recorded two solo albums under her own name. A few years ago, Shannon gathered a group of musician friends to integrate the challenges and joys of having kids with doing what they love most. Rhythm guitarist Danny Adamson is a former punk rocker and social worker who worked for 10 years with homeless youth; guitarist Tom Baisden is an elementary school teacher for special needs children. New band members are also former Seattle indie band veterans: Jennie Helman (bass) and Michael Welke (drums), a former member of Harvey Danger. All together, these parent rockers have 10 kids, “a real circus” whenever everyone gets together, according to Adamson.
