The Lovely & Talented Mrs. Smith and I did the 2nd Annual Top Pot 5k last weekend, and Caspar Babypants were performing. Now, that might not mean much to most of you (some of the hipper parents in the crowd might know them), but it's a band fronted by the former lead singer of Seattle favorite Presidents of the United States of America, Chris Ballew. While Caspar might be for kids (though, it's fun catchy stuff), PUSA were awesome and with their quick, approciable sound, I'm always a little surprised they weren't a bigger hit.
While probably their most popular video was "Lump", I wanted to spotlight a couple of lesser known, but equally good PUSA songs. First up "LOOKOUT!" it's "Peaches"
And here's the title track from PUSA's last album, which contains one of the best lines ever "She was high on Twinkies when she pulled in thinking she could just get in / out, convenience is bliss...", this is "Love Everybody
Finally, and really, it's bittersweet to include this (sweet because of the great memories it invokes, better because the Zombie Sonics are in the NBA Playoffs), but it's just so good that I can't skip it - Here is something the PUSA made for Seattle on their run to the 1996 Championship Series. This is "SuperSonics". Link to videos for FB friends.
