E For Everyone album cover via Amazon.com
Kirby Krackle is the world’s first comic book rock band. Jim Demonakos and Kyle Stevens are two talented geeks. The Seattle-based rockers write songs full of catch phrases dedicated to the nerdiest aspects of video games and comic books.
On performing, Kyle is big into melody. “That’s my number one thing,” he told Comics Alliance in June. “And not to pander, because I could tell if I were being pandered to.”
Their sophomore album is titled E For EVERYONE. And all 11 songs are suitable for everyone.
Your best bet is to check out the Kirby Krackle channel on YouTube and watch the video for “Up, Up, Down, Down.” Your foot will be tapping in no time.
Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right
B, A, Select, Start, I’m trying to unlock your heart
From years of walls, and when Hyrule falls
I’m hoping that the things I do are working to connect with you.
