The bandís truant officer, so to speak, would be Rancidís Tim Armstrong, who signed the band to his Epitaph/Hellcat label during THE GADJITSí teen years. The bandís sound, embraced and directed by Armstrong, was made up of a hybrid of rock steady and punk that fit loosely into skaís 3rd Wave, which was in full swing at the time. As the young GADJIT brothers exposed themselves to the rich history of rumor, glory, and romance of life on the road, they developed into a smart and savvy rock and roll band. A band so true to the life that they had made for themselves, they would risk it all and no longer play the blue beats that once perked the kidsí ears. Instead they would write and perform a perfect blend of American roots, blues, and rock and roll. The change in musical direction was so severe that Hellcat passed on the bandís new sound, leaving the band in limbo for over a year. It wasnít until February of 2001 that THICK Recordsí mainstay and frontman of the Blue Meanies, Billy Spunke, became so enamored with the band during a short tour with THE GADJITS that he brought them aboard the eclectic THICK Records.
Now one year later, THICK Records proudly releases 'Today Is My Day,' a record written, recorded, and mixed by the band in their Leawood house. Joined by Mike Alexander (Revolvers) on second guitar and Ehren Starks on keys, THE GADJITS open the garage door to a new sound that captures the true essence of rock and rollís classics. Itís not the sound of todayís rock resurgence, i.e. The Strokes and The White Stripes, but a revival following their own instincts instead of the current trends; proving once again that the kids truly are alright.
