The Holy Gasp "The Man Ain't Groovy" on Exclaim! TV
You won't find "The Man Ain't Groovy" on Bedbugs, The Holy Gasp's first release since expanding from a duo to a five-piece. However, the song, which was originally released during the band's leaner phase, has grown alongside the group into a full-band performance. Watch them perform the track live on Exclaim! TV.

The song is as eccentric as vocalist/percussionist Benjamin Hackman's introductory remark (you'll have to watch the clip to hear it), with plenty of start-and-stops and pitchy vocals making way for a repeating, wailing chorus. Watch as the group performs in a sea of white balloons, jostling and smacking them around as they play.

Interested viewers can groove with the Gasp tonight (May 6) at The Silver Dollar as a part of Canadian Music Week.

If you can't make it, or even if you can, check out a performance of the lively song in the player below.
