2019’s breakout kids music sensations Regurgitator’s Pogogo Show have this week released their debut album, the typically adventurous (and playfully-titled) The Really Really Really Really Boring Album.
This new project sees longtime Regurgitator trio Ben Ely, Quan Yeomans and Pete Kostic joined by the effervescent Koko direct from Planet Rainbow. It’s already struck a chord with families around the country – with the album having quickly climbed to #1 on the Children’s iTunes chart.
The band’s wildly-varied jumping castle of sounds will come as no surprise to longtime fans. From the slinky hip-hop stylings of first single ‘The Box’ and the elastic hop-scotch energy of ‘Pogogo Show Theme’; to the punk rock mania of ‘Pillow Fight’ and tropicalia fun of ‘Corumbo’, young listeners will enjoy the spin of the musical wheel.
Of course, it’s all done with smiles all round, and with a certain feeling of destiny. As Ely observes: ‘‘Doing a kids album really feels true to our nature”.
And to add further colour and movement to the whole shebang, the band have today unveiled the madcap new video for ‘Pogogo Show Theme’, their irresistible mission statement tune. The release of the video also commemorates a significant Regurgitator milestone – arriving exactly 25 years after the band’s first ever gig in Brisbane.
The ABC announce a super new partnership...
REGURGITATOR'S POGOGO SHOW ‘THE REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY BORING ALBUM'
MUCH-LOVED BAND ANNOUNCE THEIR FIRST KIDS ALBUM, TO BE RELEASED MARCH 1ST
FIRST SINGLE, THE BOX, AVAILABLE NOW - LISTEN HERE ON YOUTUBE
Renowned Brisbane funtime outfit Regurgitator have today announced their latest project: a sugar-soaked record cooked up especially for kids!
Having performed at a number of children's events in recent years, the inimitable band have developed the kids music project Regurgitator's Pogogo Show - a typically manic playground that careers between punk, hip-hop, funk, electro-pop and everything in between.
The debut release - The Really Really Really Really Boring Album - is about as silly and cheeky as a record can get, whilst still offering a G-rating suitable for the tiny folk.
Featuring instant-ear wriggles such as first single ‘The Box', it's sure to bring a smile to the faces of long-term fans as well as the young ones in their life.
The band have never been more excited: “We've got our tiny amplifiers warmed up, our teeny drum kits tuned and plenty of soap for our filthy little mouths. We're ready to shout till our voices are wrecked, if you're ready to scream till your parents are deaf!”
Frontman Quan Yeomans explains the project's conception: "We had such a great time playing at Sydney's kids festival, 'Dress Up Attack!', in late 2013 that we came off stage so inspired there had to be a kid's album and show off the back of this. The first proper kids recording session was at Ben's house in 2014 or 2015. We took out the Teenage Engineering OP-1 a Bass guitar and a couple of mics and recorded a few tracks. We had such a laugh doing them we promised ourselves that we'd eventually get around to recording a full album. And finally, we got together with Peter and Koko in late 2018 and bashed it all out, warts, giggles and all!"
