Meter Records is proud to present the debut album from the Canadian chainsaw-pop band, the Fizzgigs. The record is affectionately entitled Weeeeeeeeeeeee are the Fizzgigs and will be released on March 20, 2020 –the first day of spring and international happiness day.
Comprised of former Belvedere songwriting duo and members Jason Sinclair and Scott Marshall, alongside a couple of rhythm section pals, the Fizzgigs banded together a couple of years back over a shared love of Ramones, Descendents and Lookout-Records-circa-1990-
While recording Weeeeeeeeeeeee, the Fizzgigs
Weeeeeeeeeeeee are the Fizzgigs, as a collection of songs, is a testament to the value of expressing yourself and having fun –not in spite of everything being fucked-up around you, but especially because everything around you is fucked. And not to turn a blind eye, but to remind ourselves of why it’s worth another spin. It paints this picture between themes of glossy nostalgia, bitter resentment, human sacrifice, human comedy, and the end of the world. And does so in an upbeat fashion prone to inspiring movement. You may be a pogoer, a mosher, a headbanger, a foot stomper, a toe-tapper, or a steering wheel drummer… whatever your go-to is, these songs are meant to get you going and maybe even allow you to lose yourself to a joyful moment here and there. It wasn’t intended to be a concept album, but from the artwork (a cartoon character joyfully, if not ignorantly, indulging in a ride down a janky old slide despite being too big, the slide being broken, and the disapproval of waiting onlookers) to the release on international happiness day, Weeeeeeeeeeeee is about choosing fun.
