The Gretzky Twist

by The Zambonis

/

about

What you hear is what you get. Recorded live to tape with ZERO overdubs. As most know, we love hockey, Wayne Gretzky but we also love garage rockers like The Sonics, The Monks, Thee Headcoatees, Bloodshot Bill and many more. This song was kind of written in the basement at practice 2 months before this recording. We played it about 7 times after that session and each time was different. Where do we clap? Where do we all shout YEH in unison? When does the vocal come in? How does it end? Somehow, all of those answers were answered in this recording. Recorded at The Westport Library June 2021
HOCKEY ROCKS!
THE ZAMBONIS

lyrics

EVERYBODY DO THE GRETZKY TWIST YEH!
EVERYBODY GONNA MOVE LIKE THIS YEH!
YEH YOU DEKE TO THE LEFT & THEN YOU DEKE TO THE RIGHT
WAY OUT IN EDMONTON, OVER THERE WITH THE LA KINGS
EVERYBODY DO THE GRETZKY TWIST
