The newest video by the Green Pajamas for “Dark Waters (in the Wires)” from their Green Pajama Country! album, out now on Green Monkey Records.

The Green Pajamas have been around for as long as K, making their pop rockin’ in overdrive album after album. you can find out more about Green Pajamas and their upcoming shows HERE.

Please note the latest addition to the Green Pajamas clan, drummer Scott Vanderpool. As a founding member of Olympia’s seminal rockin’ pop combo from the early ’80s, the Young Pioneers, Scott was a HUGE part of the world from which K sprang. Young Pioneers appear on our first three cassette compilations of Olympia ( + elsewhere) sounds, Let’s Together (1984), Let’s Kiss (1985) and Let’s Sea (1986). Scott was kind enough to lend Beat Happening his drum set countless times (in fact they were played on the first Beat Happening 45 “Our Secret” / “What’s Important”). Thanks, Scott!

    I recently got a download of a Christmas cassette I had a couple tracks on in 1984 (with Big Brother on the cover). I was highly amused to see Mr. Vanderpool was one of the “producers” – didn’t know him for boo back then – just sent a tape to somebody I read about in the Rocket. I’ve spent a few more hours with him since – a fine fellow indeed. Not a bad tuba player either.
