SongoftheDay: HEART SHAPED GUITAR by MASKED INTRUDER
Hey, I’m Matt Racha and I play in a band called The Valveenus, from Ottawa, Canada. We’re releasing our new album Catalyst later this month. Been a fan
of Fat Wreck bands for a while. They’re some of the first bands that got me into punk rock when I was a kid. So I’m stoked to be a guest curator for SongoftheDay here at rockandrolljunkie.com for the week.
My favourite Masked Intruder song is ‘heart shaped guitar’. It’s so damn poppy and catchy and the lyrics are hilarious. Just the whole creepy burglar theme they got going on for the band, and the lyrics that match perfectly with that is genius. Thanks Blue for doing what we all didn’t have the guts to pull off for our crushes (Haha).
(That old saying rings true, “if it tickles your ears, the go with it.” Well, we here at rockandrolljunkie have it on good authority that Matt Racha is our man when it comes to Fat Wreck Chords. He right friggin’ loves those bands, and his passion will come through this week as guest-curator for our special 25th Anniversary celebration of Fat Wreck Chords. You can check out Matt’s band The Valveenus here, and go out and get their new album Catalyst when it is released later this month. If you are in the Toronto area, you can see them live.
