Regurgitator - Pogogo Show
Sun 17 May
Ever since the heyday of Yo Gabba Gabba, alternative and indie rock bands have been no strangers to the world of children’s music. The TV show was a winner with “cool parents” who would grin and bear the bright colours, giant creature costumes and naggingly catchy ditties in anticipation of that Ladytron or MGMT cameo.
Just as the bands who appeared on that show worked their trademark sound into tunes suitable for youngsters, Regurgitator have done the same but on a grander scale. After performing shows specifically for children last year, the band have stretched this into something that resembles an audio kid’s programme, right down to in-between song skits and a recurring theme tune.
Also, of the bands to put out a kids' record, Regurgitator are prime candidates. Right from the beginning, they’ve delivered electro-punk daubed in crayons, and behind the swear words and occasional ferocity, there’s always been a cartoonish colour to their music.
