ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Gargamel's third release, The New Tenderness, will please faithful fans and bring in a whole slew of new ones. The cd artwork is so good that the entertainment starts before hearing the first tune. Surprises await and will hit you with the opening track, 'Hey Everybody'. After getting your mind right and bracing yourself for noise, 'Hey Everybody' is a perfect reminder that no one should think they've got Gargamel's number. Swank, sexy, equally spooky and funny; this tune is a new road trip must. The New Tenderness indeed. Understand, that this recording is no less intense than their previous work, it's just that the dynamics are much more effective. The subject matter is still dark but conveyed with far less of the usual profanity. For those that miss that sort of thing, Gargamel's live shows continue to give good doses.
Mandaddy's vocalizations have always boggled the mind yet The New Tenderness shows him reaching even greater technical heights. The balance between singing and screaming is more discriminate. When the screams come with this latest recording they hit harder than ever, yet overall, this album is more fun to listen to than the others.
The entire band has harnessed this odd mixture of aggression with suave overtones. 'Little Milk Belly (upgrade)' shouldn't be sexy, but what can you do? Gargamel's new take on this original track from Revulva is a complete re-working that fits perfectly in its new skin. Professor Knuckles weaves between slick harmonic guitar fills to metal chords of gut busting crunchy goodness. Also, Mandaddy sings better than ever and sounds colossal on 'Little Milk Belly'.
The New Tenderness shows all of these musicians in top form. Highlights include Webb's unequaled ownership of 'Daddy Needs Money', Crazy Hector's eruptive lines on 'Grim Reaper' and his slap funk freak-out on 'Chowder Cough' gets your booty shaking. As always, Servobeonic Man brings out the laughs, yet his supreme ability can't be overlooked. He works within a spectrum of fathomless dimensions and could easily be a one-man encyclopedic example of what the keys can do.
Gargamel's formidable live shows are such a free-for-all that the chance to hear Professor Knuckles' studio work is a treat. 'Hey Everybody' and 'Little Milk Belly' offer particularly impressive nuances that might get lost live. 'Failure Machine' shows that there probably isn't a musical genre that he can't handle.

Kick Ass CD!
This cd is amazing. It definately showcases the talent of this band. My favorite song, Daddy Needs Money, is kick ass.

Bad Ass
Gargamel does it again. They're just the shit. I wish they'd get signed so they could put out more shit, but that would definitely cramp they're style. Funk that, death to the mainstream, Garga fans can just keep this our own thing. I just wish New Tenderness was like five times longer. Oh well thats why there is a repeat button on the stereo.

Gargamel's returns with an excellant album.
After listening to this CD, I still think Gargamel is one of the best unique bands I've ever heard. They really do a good job in there songs, going from mellow and smooth to heavy and pissed off. When you come across a band who doesn't fit into any particular genre, you've found something original. Gargamel is without a doubt, one of those bands. Although the track list contains only 9 tracks, Gargamel never fails to surprise you. There's a little something extra you'll find on there. That is if you buy the CD. Afterall, anyone in there awkward mind would.

Sweet like ass.
TNT is so fucking jazzy it makes me splooge all over my dashboard whenever I drive down the street masturbating to it. I especially enjoy the upgrade of Little Milk Belly; it shows just how much the band has grown since Revulva.

Superb musicianship, warped sense of humor, how can you go wrong?
One look at the cover of Gargamel!'s "The New Tenderness" shows the band hasn't lost their warped sense of humor. One listen to the record shows not only haven't they lost their sense of humor, but Gargamel! also hasn't lost the superb musicianship that they've shown in the past. The Garga-boys retain their mixed bag of musical styles ranging from Latin ("Hey Everybody") to hard-edge ("Grin, Reaper", "Daddy Needs Money", "Face Hugger") to soulful funk ("Chowder Cough"). Although the album is an eclectic blend, it works, and Gargamel! is one of the few bands that can pull this off. We're sure the band wouldn't have it any other way.
