Gustafer’s New Adventure

by Amber on October 26, 2010

Gustafer Yellowgold: Slim Gets in 'emWe caught the Gustafer Yellowgold show at Club Passim this weekend and were excited to see Morgan Taylor debut two songs from the upcoming new Gustafer CD/DVD set to be released in February.

So, you want to hear the news? In the next DVD, titled Gustafer Yellowgold’s Infinity Sock, Gustafer goes in search for the end of the universe’s longest sock. This is going to be the first Gustfer DVD that tells a complete story with a definite beginning, middle, and end.

As Gustafer follows the infinity sock I’m sure he’ll find himself in interesting places—like with his head stuck in a beehive! One of the new songs is called Beehive and it brings back the mint bee and his band. Gustafer gets to see the mint bee put on a rock show for all the other bees, complete with pyrotechnics and a fan riot. Looks like Gustafer makes it out without getting stung, though!

And if we’re talking about socks, then we must be talking about Slim, Gustafer’s pet eel. He does “sleep in a tube sock,” after all. Another new song is about Slim, called Slim gets in ’em, and his love for all things socks. It was a really fast-paced pop song that was great for dancing (Ivan was so excited about this song). Slim’s one of my favorite characters so I love that he’s getting a new song… but what about Forest’s pet cat? I think he needs his own song, too!

The show was magnificent, as always. Morgan is hilarious and everyone loves hearing silly stories about Gustafer’s life. We didn’t get any videos of the new songs (we don’t want to spoil the surprise), but here’s a fun video of Pinecone Lovely, my absolute favorite ode to conifers:

We were there too! As much as I already loved Morgan’s work, the two new songs blew me away. Often, when you go to shows and hear new material, it’s nice to hear but doesn’t have a chance to make a proper impression. I’m not sure if it was because of the video accompaniment or not, but these really did. My almost-six year old was even talking about Slim gets in ’em as we left. Personally, I think Beehive is tremendous. The video is just awesome. And the songs are even richer—fuzzy guitar solos, fuller drums… great stuff.

The show was simply incredible. I personally wish the set was about three times as long, but it was a good length for kiddos.
