Roughly two years ago Doogie approached Odoms and me with a demo cd. The CD simply said “Bubbacinni” written with a marker on it.
Doogie said, “You gotta hear this shit!”. We asked, “Is it Good?”, and he said, “Just fuckin listen to it”.
So, we popped it in and we were not initially impressed. The beats were dated, and the guy rapping sounded like he was rapping in a weird Tupac/Guido style. He made interesting Gulfport mafia references, mourned the loss of his best friend Terry P., and antagonized his nemesis “Jay Sweez”.
We imagined a guy who looked like Kingpin from Spiderman, but wearing Hilfiger polos with a herringbone chain over the collar.
Not long after, we started actually enjoying the album, and by the third song, we were hooked.
We listened to it over and over again.
Our next objective was to actually find Bubbacinni because we wanted to discuss releasing his album.
The problem was, there was no contact information on the CD. Doogie said he “might could find him through this girl that works at one of the Gold kiosks in the mall.” A place called “Gold Illusions by Sam”.
Of course, Doogie came through, and we were finally able to get in touch with Bubbacinni via email.
After some negotiations with his lawyer we finally came to deal, and we are happy to finally release this gem.
Ballzack, Odoms, and Kennedy done did it again! Directed by Mike Kennedy and DP’d by Nathan Tape, “Talk Like a Snake” is the second video from The new AceNErnie album. We got camels, raccoons, skunks…fuckin reindeer, and big ass snakes. Enjoy, watch it over and over again, and send it to your whole family!
Upon meeting each other, Ace and Ernie had aspirations of starting a metal band, and ruling the world.
They decided this metal band would be called Goblin Claw.
Ace and Ernie practiced everyday, they dug deep inside themselves writing lyrics, and perfecting their craft.
Eventually, they saved enough money to record a Goblin Claw demo. The demo was passed out to local radio stations, sent to fanzines, and given to people around town.
Nobody listened to it, and the few that did listen to it…hated it.
Embarrassed and defeated, they retreated back to their secret clubhouse and devised a plan.
They realized that most of their peers simply weren’t listening to punk or metal anymore, most people were listening to rap, and to get their attention Ace and Ernie would have to adapt.
First they would study and learn how to rap, then they would record a rap album. Once they had people’s attention, they would re-release their Goblin Claw demos to a wider audience.
This album is the first part of their grand scheme.
Odoms’ futuristic debut, Let Me Atom is like a space shuttle straight out of his Ass. An instant classic that still gets him recognized at the mall. Let Me Atom features guest Production from J. Yuenger, Ballzack, and Omar. The video was skillfully directed by Mr. Mike Kennedy.
Yeah Indeed is the product of years of labor. Everyday Ballzack would go to J. Yuenger’s studio in the Garden District, drink coffee, discuss politics, play on the groovebox, and then lunch. Occasionally Odoms would stop by. The mic was always on.
