Two Kirby Krackle Music Videos

Nerdcore duo Kirby Krackle have just released the first video from their third album, Super Powered Love. The song is Nerd Core and has a great, “if I won the lotto, I’d buy…” approach to it.

They’ve also created the theme song for Marvel’s official Who Watches the Watcher? online news, and here’s the video for that too.

Their songs and videos just keep getting better.

Secret Identity Music Video

Nerdcore duo Kirby Krackle have just released an animated music video for the song Secret Identity from their second album, E For Everyone. Check it out below, and Kirby Krackle’s site here. The clip is from Betsy Lee who also created their Up,Up, Down, Down video. If you like toe tapping music filled with clever comics and pop culture references, Kirby Krackle are the only way to go.

Kirby Krackle’s Wolverine Music Video

Nerdcore musical duo Kirby Krackle recently released the music video for their song On and On, all about everyone’s favourite hairy Canadian mutant. Apart from Wolverine, it also features subtle cameos from Nightcrawler, Rogue and other X-Men and even Sabretooth, Deadpool and a bunch of ninja. Sure, it’s low budget but it’s well made and looks good.

Kirby Krackle will be at Nerdaplooza on Saturday and at the San Diego Comic Con at the end of the month. Their new album, E for Everyone features a bunch of cool, musical odes to comics and is available now.

Kirby Krackle Strike Again

Nerdcore band Kirby Krackle (who I interviewed at Broken Frontier last year) have just released the first single from their upcoming second album, E For Everyone. The duo, consisting of Kyle Stevens and Jim Demonakos, specialise in writing songs that make fanboys and girls tap their toes and smile wryly at all the witty references. Their first album gained many fans in the comics community, and surely more will follow. The single, On and On centres on a day in the life of Wolverine and you can here it at their site right now.

I also suggest checking out the lyrics to On and On and the songs from their debut album. E For Everyone will be released via their site on March 9 and is able to be pre-ordered now. Below is the groovy cover art from comics artist Jim Mahfood, with colours by Justin Stewart. Yes, that’s a gree lantern generated guitar. Awesome.
