The Candy Band//Ken Lost His Head

Kid Friendly Local Music Friday.
Tell me...what is this Local Music Fridays?

You may remember, in roughly 2005/2006, there was a movement emerging of moms playing in bands. Dubbed "Mom Rock," by some, the movement garnered a lot of national media attention.

Around this time, I had to pleasure to play on a show with one of these bands--The Candy Band from Detroit. These gals played some awesome punk rock kids songs and were really fun to watch.

This song is about a favorite childhood toy theme: headless barbies. Considering the holidays are coming up, if you have kids in your life, you're bound to see some of these appearing soon. That said, if you're looking for presents for your friends who are kids and who are also awesome, think about this.

I don't know what the status of all those mom rockers these days, but I hope they are keepin' on keepin' on--for the children!

He can't eat Barbie's cookies.
He has no mouth.
