There is a man, he’s a surfing kind of man, and he’s the editor of a surfing kind of magazine called Transworld Surf. This man in also in a band. And that band is KUT U UP. And though they haven’t recorded in a while, they’d like to again.
And if dishing out any cash to this Kickstarter project will secure the production of anything like the documentary “Riding In Vans With Boys” that the band shot in 2002 while on the “Pop Disaster” tour with Green Day, blink-182 and Jimmy Eats World — then I would say throw your dollars at their project like it’s the most delicious piece of stripper ass you’ve even seen. (Mom, Dad, Gramma or any other sensitive family members or current/potential employers — pink bunny rabbits bouncing high in the sky surfing rainbows wheeeee!!!)
Donate a few bucks on their Kickstarter page and get sweet prizes ranging from a picture of your name (in Sharpie) on a band member body part — and a TWO-HOUR SURF LESSON with Chris Cote (in the San Diego area). Some highlights from the video — which is basically like a Jackass-goes-on-tour-with-Green-Day doc — include: sandwiches that eat weed, milk fights, birthday hats, birthday suits, bird poop cocktails, a game called gay chicken, “slow” and “soft” band member holding in hut tubs, grass skateboarding, chandelier swinging, a drum kit that rotates 360 degrees, a natural whippet factory, hot wax, snot, farts, poop in an ice bucket, farts, live cricket placement on sleeping mall patrons, and Chris kissing Billie Joe Armstrong and then letting him brand his butt with a pool cue. And rock, of course. (Don’t worry, I hate my life too right now.)
So if you like to laugh, take a good gander — Cote and his KUT U UP bros really know how to tear shizzit up! It starts strong but starts gettin’ real good at about… 4:20. No jokey. (I posted this blog later than I wanted to, the Kickstarter campaign ends today at 11:30am CST, der, let us bow our heads in a puddle on a miniature golf course.)
