According to Oxford, a glob is “a lump of a semiliquid substance.” The word is a fusion of blob and gob, a “lump of slime.” According to Sacramento, a glob is one of one of six GLOBS, a spirited punk rock & roll band that references the cult pop of THE BANANAS and the theatric roots rock that is Bruce Springsteen.

The Globs sprang from the mind of MIKE R. MIKE—also the mouth behind The Bananas. Mike wanted a “punk E Street Band,” so he went about drawing from Sacramento’s always incestuous music scene. First, he tapped CHARLES ALBRIGHT, man of many bands (RAD, Charles Albright Band, etc.), and CHRISTINE SHELLEY (KNOCK KNOCK, PIZZAS). Christine got her dad, NICK SHELLEY, to play piano and sax. The Globs grew to include CRAIG (RAD, SICK BURN) and JESSICA (DANGER, INC.). Three years in the making, The Weird and Wonderful World of The Globs is twelve tight songs of infectious rock & roll—a punk edge, pop sensibilities, and that swooning feeling that makes you want to singalong. Like the best of today’s rock & roll, the Globs have many reference points—intentional or not—The Raspberries, X, Beach Boys, Rezillos, Polyphonic Spree, and so on. Push a movie like the Breakfast Club into the 21st Century and The Globs are your Simple Minds, albeit a bit more knockabout and that’s all for the better.
