What do you get when you combine four scoops of super-wacky musicians, a dash of royalty, two cartoon chefs, and a slice of lemon? The Really Cooks!
“The Really Cooks may be the only ‘food rock’ band in Philly. Wait, they definitely are,” jokes Brian Wilensky of Philadelphia City Paper. These guys have created an alternate world in which music and food are more than platonic friends – they are lifelong lovers.
Don’t let the band members’ half-human, half-cartoon identities fool you; The Really Cooks are 100% awesome. They combine late period British ’60s pop with a quirky American showtune aesthetic to craft catchy, palate-pleasing pop tunes. The harmonic element of their music is reminiscent of Queen and the Beach Boys, while their psychedelic sensibility channels that of The Zombies.
Sink your teeth into the band’s savory sound on their music page, which features their 2011 debut album, Dr. Lemonade Stand. This eleven-course meal breaks harmonic molds and bends genres while regaling stories of evil villains, beautiful bugs, and oceanic adventures. The album’s stylistic charm and wit will have you begging for a second helping.
Food, music, and sex are inarguably the three basic necessities for survival. Well, The Really Cooks can guarantee at least two!
The Really Cooks are Josh Band (keys), Pete Band (guitar), King Alon (bass), and Dr. Lemonade (drums). Welcome to the whimsical world of The Really Cooks!
