MARRIED MAN BY YOUNG GUV




The Married Man by youngguv

ORDER THIS ONE SIDED 7" HERE. WILL GO FAST. FIRST ONE OF MY RECORDS EVER RELEASED ON A TORONTO LABEL (we are busy bodies). RECORDED THIS ONE ABOUT A YEAR AGO. More to come...

update:
as per your request in the comments:

This song was taken from an old demo of mine when i was in another band.. the idea was scrapped or considered not good enough, but I always felt that the melodies and feel of the song was solid. the original was pretty fast, and was a lot more powerpop. at the time i recorded this song i had a few fuzz pedals kicking around and my friend anthonys jazzmaster was in the corner and since I was listening to a lot of dead moon and fleetwood mac i decided to use a fleetwood mac beat and play it like i thought dead moon might play it. i dont really listen to dead moon anymore. i kinda think it was a phase. i originally had agreed to meet up with simone form 100$ so she could sing back ups on this, but it never happened so i scrapped that idea. i played slide guitar with an empty can at the studio.
the lyrics were inspired by a guy who when hanging around would always hint at something to do with me and my girlfriend being married one day. he seemed completely obsessed with the idea of marriage and security and me being a young man from a divorced family with the opposite views on the subject I couldn't help but take a knock at him in a song... Some of my best friends are married..Respect to them, but I still think its a weird thing to do.

There!


ps when i was told to google "married man young governor" to look at people complaining about the shipping price of this record (the 9$ is shipping included, so i guess thats not so bad?) this was the first thing that came up (DO IT, CHI BABE! YOU SO NAUGHTY!). also it for some reason reminded me of whenever i txt "guv" with my iphone the auto txt corrector always corrects it to "HIV". bummmmer.

this pretty much has zero relevance to this post, but are the bitters ever going to do shows again?

I've just discovered Justin Bieber and don't want your records any more. Can you send my weed back please?

guv said...

the bitters are not going to be playing shows or doing records anymore because the shows were boring.. still like the records tho. i also still love the cover of the LP. SUCK IT, PFORK.
