#1611: I Want Your Body (feat. The Giraffes)

Oh, man, did I have fun hanging out with these guys.  A hard rock band that’s been on the NYC scene for nearly two decades, The Giraffes are known for their wild live shows and their unique, fast-and-furious studio offerings.  We played a few cuts from their influences (which are remarkably varied) and talked about the changing music scene in New York City and all the history they’ve been through together.  Watch out for hard riffs and salty language, it’s the goddamn Giraffes!


Full show:

Just the talky madness:
