That 1 Guy

Average listal rating (4 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 0
Mike Silverman, or better known as That 1 Guy is a one man band who tours around with his homemade instruments.

Well known for wearing an all black ensemble (doesn't matter how hot it is) and has the overall appearance of an Amish man. That is because he is... or was. He was born into an Amish family, and at the age of 18, the rules are you can either break from everything you grew up knowing to become a part of the modern world or stay with what you know best in the Amish community. Mike found music, so he left bravely to pursue becoming a musician. His Amish skills helped him in the end though. Mike Silverman has his own homemade instruments. Mainly The Magic Pipe, but he also has a The Magic Boot, and the Magic Saw. He is a 1 man band and has been playing at venues/ university's since 1990. He has 3 full release albums
'Songs in the Key of Beotch'
'The Moon Is Disgusting'
'Packs A Wallop!'

Lyrics to the below video:
Of all the dirt that we dug, I think my favorite was the mud.
Of all the wine that we drank, I think my favorite was the blood.
Of all the bombs that we lit, I think my favorite was the dud.
Of all the things that we chew, I think my favorite is the cut
Of the cow. Like that time when we lie to and fro
Hope to throw. Tables turn, books that burn, hurt the shine,
Tilt the wheel, hold the hand, cop a feel, close the deal,
Like that time, turpentine, when we lie to and fro.

Of all the banks that we robbed, I think my favorite one was mine.
Of all the bushes that burned, the ones I liked talked wise and kind.
Of all the toys that we smashed, I think I liked the ones that wind.
Of all the beotches we pimp slapped, I liked the ones that did not mind
Over matter. Your head on a platter, put the bread in the batter-y acid,
Don't I scrink(?) on it, island on a sun, this side down, to the water,
You'll sell me your daughter, I'll plot a new course on a horse.
With no name droppin', pill poppin' son of a beotch
The bug bites make me iotch.

Of all the trees that we hugged, I think I liked the ones that died.
Of all the butts that we grabbed, I remember only the wide ones.
Of all the whales that we beached, ya chose to blame it on the tide.
Of all the forks that we stole, just to jab each others eyes
Of the shape of the smoke, of the bang of the pipe.
Twist and turn, reckless burn, melting wax, melting hype.
Hurt to change, keep exchange, burning down, turning ripe.
Of the shape of the smoke, of the bang of the pipe.



Personal Note:
I am proud to say I have had the honor to see this guy 3 times. 2 times at a music festival in the summertime, and once in a tiny venue called the '8X10'. At the 8X10, since it is such a small venue, artists go there with the intention of mingling with the fans after the show. I had the honor of meeting him and he's such a gentleman. He is absolutely amazing at his shows as well. Not only does he WOW you with his magic pipe, but the music he plays to the magic tricks he preforms while playing his songs are so entertaining. You will see nothing else like it.

Pretty Lights

Derek Vincent Smith, or 'Pretty Lights' is an American electronic music artist who got the stage name Pretty Lights from a Pink Floyd poster. Typical story with this guy, he went to college and dropped out to pursue his love for music and got lucky by starting to do shows with bands such as STS9 and Widespread Panic. He mainly does the festival scene, you can catch a show more than likely in the summertime.
He mainly takes samples from songs and mixes them with 2 or 3 other songs adding a bass heavy beat to dance too. He also writes his own songs. Pretty Lights is also well known for his live performance. A brightly lit block-like stage lights up the entire night sky with bright vibrant colors and crazy 3D-esque visuals. It is also provided with speakers 3X as big as your body. Just to make sure you get that buzz feeling going on in your body due the heavy bass. Pretty Lights has 3 full album releases
'Taking Up Your Precious Time'
'Filling Up The City Skies'
'Passing By Behind Your Eyes'




Personal Note:
I also have been blessed to have seen this man live. I saw him at the SAME music festival I saw That 1 Guy at. If you want me to REALLY brag about it, I saw him RIGHT after Primus played for about 2 hours. His set went from 11pm to 5am. No joke. And I stayed and danced the ENTIRE time. I cannot express the beauty of the show he puts on. His stage set up is one of the most impressive things I've seen ever.

Thundercat is just 1 person Stephen Bruner who is also a member of the thrash band Suicidal Tendency. He's barely past 20, and has an addiction to 80's cartoons. Other than that we really don't know much about him, but thanks to his recent full release album

I'm sure we will find out a lot about him soon.

Lyrics to the song below:
Open your mind, Daylight, Open your eyes


Personal Note:
When my boyfriend played this album for the first time I was instantly hooked. It's awesome background music for a party or something. And then when you get all drunk and groovy it's some of the funnest music to dance to. Did I also mention a lot of tracks are relaxing?

Lyrics to the song below:
Yeah! Great skies of green
Yeah! Great fields of blue
Yeah! Vast swathes of pink

Who put the fork in your tongue?
Who broke the belt with a bang?

Try to remember: 'Old dog, new tricks'
Say it: "It's alright"
It's not your name they're dragging through the mud, it's mine

Who put the fork in your tongue?
Who broke the belt with a bang?

Try to remember your insularity
Say it: "It's alright"
It's not your name they're dragging through the mud

Forget to segregate yourself
Forget to flagellate yourself
Door meets door in the glamorous mansion
Forget to segregate yourself
Forget to flagellate yourself
And it's teeming with shadows;
Paralyzed minds make decisions in the dark

Who put the fork in your tongue?
Who broke the belt with a bang?
Buy it, run it, kick it, fuck it, yeah.

Personal Note:
To be honest I'm not too into this band. I have to admit though, sometimes when a song by them comes on there are moments where I'm just like 'WHOA where the hell did that riff come from?' They surprise me sometimes. Not gonna lie.

Lyrics to the song below:
Through crooked teeth and mouthed up ties
They spit you up river just like all those lions
That walked the banks

They said, "Paint me that river
And would you use only blues
With a brilliant big black mouth and?
Lengths of pines that route the river through
Through and through"

Fashion ballrooms of the leaves
We’d like to watch the ghosts dance

They said, "Paint me that arm
That lies directly over mountains
Where the glaciers climb so tall.
One absent of the scars passing boats and ships and oars
Tend to leave with all the sounds of the ocean."

I am but a man
But a proud, proud man
Silver bells that line the way
Through baited trails.
We’ll find you there

Personal Note:
I've been listening to this band for a while and the shear original sound is what makes me love this band the most.

I will kill you in your sleep, so you better try, try and keep awake
i will kill you in your sleep, so you better try, try and keep awake
I will kill you in your sleep, so you better try, try and keep awake
I will kill you in your sleep, so you better try, try and keep awake
keep your left eye open, and your right toe twitchin'
'cause i'm in the kitchen with a knife that's itchin'
for your red blood, on those white sheets
so keep your left eye open, and your right toe twitchin'
'cause i'm in the kitchen with a knife that's itchin'
for your red blood, on those white sheets
I will kill you in your sleep, so you better try, try and keep awake
I will kill you in your sleep, so you better try, try and keep awake
I will kill you in your sleep, so you better try, try and keep awake
I will kill you in your sleep, so you better try, try and keep awake
keep your left eye open, and your right toe twitchin'
'cause i'm in the kitchen with a knife that's itchin'
for your red blood, on those white sheets
so keep your left eye open, and your right toe twitchin'
'cause i'm in the kitchen with a knife that's itchin'
for your red blood, on those white sheets
I will kill you in your sleep, so you better try, try and keep awake
I will kill you in your sleep, so you better try, try and keep awake
I will kill you in your sleep, so you better try, try and keep awake
I will kill you in your sleep, so you better try, try and keep awake

Personal Note:
I saw this band live this past summer 2011. It was SO MUCH FUN! High energy, great opening bands, (it was also the first time I could legally drink at a show). I don't think I've heard girls scream SO loud in my entire life over Jackson. They did an audience participation improv song about belly buttons. After the show they all came out signed posters and whatnot. All of them are very nice.

Natalie Portman does know about the existence of the band due to one of the member's sisters telling her during a signing. All Natalie had to say was "Oh, that's cool.". In June of 2010 they changed their name to Brite Futures and had this to say about the situation. "...it has recently come to our attention that our muse Ms. Portman is not so keen on us using her name in ours...".

Lyrics to the song below:
I like it when you say you've got a gun in your back
That's so hot, that's so hot
I like it when you say you're gonna kill JT
Turns me on, turns me on
I like it when you say you're gonna beat kids up
Gets me off, gets me off
I like it when you say you'd go gay for Ben
That's so bomb, that's so bomb
Do you like my ponytail?
(I do, I do!)
My sideways ponytail?
(It's true, it's true!)
Do you like my ponytail?
(I do, I do!)
My sideways ponytail?
(It's true, it's true!)
Do you wanna see Shamu with me?
(Yes, I do. I love Shamu)
Do you wanna go to the Oyster Fest?
(Yes, oh yes! That's the best!)
Do you wanna go on tilt-a-whirl?
(Come on girl, 'till you hurl.)
Do you like my ponytail?
(I do, I do!)
My sideways ponytail?
(It's true, it's true!)
Do you like my ponytail?
(I do, I do!)
My sideways ponytail?
(It's true, it's true!)

Personal Note:
I just recently began to listen to this band, and for the most part I feel like it's dumb. But at the same time its excellent. I'm kind of confused on how I feel. The beats are great, the attitude is hilarious, the lyrics are dumb (not in a bad way, on purpose I guess?) It's overall a mixed feeling.

But, if you do like it, +15 points of respect to you from me. This band was a staple in my high school years.

Lyrics to the song below:
All I want to be is a shovely bubbly gobbly gook

A seagull stole him from his slow mama's hands
Aboard the boat, the Sweet Louisa
And dropped him in the meadowlands
Where wild hyenas taught him how to hunt old elephants
So he spent his formative years eating out badunkadunk

Fee fi fo fum

Fee fi fo fum
(I smell the blood of an Englishman)
Fee fi fo fum
(I smell the blood of an Englishman)
Fee fi fo fum
(I smell the blood of an Englishman)

He traveled across the sea in the belly of a Japanese businessman
On a pleasure ship to France
And he don't know why she loves him
And he don't know why the sun sets but

Fee fi fo fum
(I smell the blood of an Englishman)
Fee fi fo fum
(I smell the blood of an Englishman)
Fee fi fo fum
(I smell the blood of an Englishman)
Fee fi fo fum
(I smell the blood of an Englishman)

Bang pow pow pow ah

And her father hated him with the passion of a dying Chinaman
He said, "Get him out of here or I'm going to bite off his face"
No daddy daddy, don't daddy daddy
"Get the fuck out of my house"
No daddy daddy, don't daddy daddy
"This is my house, my house"

Fee fi fo fum

Fee fi fo fum

Lyrics To The Song Below:
I walked ten thousand miles, ten thousand miles to see you,
And every gasp of breath i grabbed at just to find you,
I climbed up every hills to get, to you,
I wondered ancient lands to hold, just you.

And every single step of the way, of pain,
Every single night and day,
I searched for you.
Through sandstorms and hazy dawns i reached for you.

I stole ten thousand pounds, ten thousand pounds to see you,
I robbed convenient stores coz i thought they'd make it easier.
I lived off rats and toads, and i starved for you.
I fought off giants bears and i killed them too.

And every single step of the way, of pain,
Every single night and day,
I searched for you.
Through sandstorms and hazy dawns i reached for you.
I'm tired and i'm weak, but i'm strong for you.
I wanna go home, but my love gets me through.

Lalala....

Personal Note:
I am so in love with this song, it's such a cute tune and I love the lyrics. @_@ Also I love the anime Mushishi and thought that this song was pretty original for an anime.

Tripped me out.

Lyrics to the song below:
hey now, overcome your concern about the weather
and whether or not i'm still alive
check the vital signs
so soft spoken and shy
never gets high anymore
did you poison my food, forgive me i've paranoid flu

i've been lying wide awake paralyzed by the buzzing of the television
these modern things we know, getting you off
these modern things we know, getting you off

haunting us, these different meanings and spectral beings.
We're fighting sleep with broken, rusted weaponry.
Sing so softly and low, like you want me to hear.
Stolen what you can't afford,
What's that muffle beating for?

i've been lying wide awake paralyzed by the buzzing of the television
these modern things we know, getting you off
these modern things we know, getting you off

Something I could never say, speak so softly and low.
Something I could never say.
(Yltfos os kaeps) [speak so softly backwards]
Something I could never say.
(Yltfos os kaeps)
Something I could never say.
(Yltfos os kaeps.)
(Speak so softly and low.)
Something I could never say, speak so softly and low.
(Speak so softly.)
(Yltfos os kaeps.)
If you love me let me go.
(Stolen what you can't...)
Speak so softly.
(Speak so softly.)
(Stolen what you can't afford, what's that muffle beat...)
(Yltfos os kaeps.)
(Speak so softly.)
(Something I can never say. Speak so softly and low.)
(Speak so... softly.)
(Yltfos os kaeps. Yltfos os kaeps. Yltfos.)

Personal Note:
Circa Survive is one of my favorite bands. The reason I chose this song is because it's my favorite. I actually got permission from the band to use this song in one of the short films I've made. This song made me buy a copy of 'House Of Leaves' which I'm currently reading and thoroughly enjoying. I saw them live FOR FREE. It was a secret show in Baltimore, and if you were in the first 100 people, you got in for free. Me and a few friends stood in the rain for 2 hours to get a spot. I hold them as one of the top 10 best shows I've ever seen. It was so full of emotion. This band never fails to amaze me.

Heavy Heavy Low Low

Heavy Heavy Low Low (HHLL) is a band that is quite one of a kind. They are generally considered metal, but over the years have changed what kind of metal they play. It started as Thrashcore and changed to Metalcore but here recently with their last album release have ultimately been deemed 'Experimental Metal'. I still call them Mathcore. They formed in 2004 and are still together and touring. They are well known for their sloppy sound and overall noise. I would call their music noise for sure. They are also well known for their openly heavy partying lifestyles.

They currently have 3 full album releases:

Turtle Nipple and the Toxic Shock

They currently have 4 members:

Lyrics to the song below:
throw me through this car window and land me outside
where i can breathe better and pass away alright
this is ill at ease and i worry,
i worry oh my god i felt my heart stop
i felt my fucking heart stop
but were going all the way
i only have myself to blame
oh they know, they know, they know their eyes are tearing the skin from our bodies
and dressing us in guilt,
filling our wounds with salt
my stomach is tying itself in knots and eating itself and everything else,
there must be something in the water making this an awkward situation

Personal Note:
Lol this band. Another band that glided me through high school. I love the sound. I love angry noise. I love the breakdowns. I'm not going to be surprised if you don't like it. I love the lyrics as well. Most of them are hilarious. Most of their songs are also only 1-2 minutes long. It was hard to chose which song I wanted to represent them. I love most of their songs. This song is obviously about a fatal car crash.

Just promise me that you'll never leave
I'd die if you leave me

When I was young
All of these things didn't matter
But now times have changed
And I wasn't paying attention

So fuck you and your mass media toys
That make being alive seem like a chore
I don't know how much of this i can handle
Excuse me is my rant taking too long?
Is it getting in the way of this lovely song?
Just promise me that you'll never leave
I'd die if you leave me

Personal Note:
I saw this band open for 'She Wants Revenge' the show was so laid back and mystical it put me in a trance, and then they would come in with some heavy hitting guitar rifts to bring you back to reality. It was quite enjoyable.

I love this guy. He opened for Bassnectar and totally blew me away. Especially with the song I chose. I love how it makes you feel like your underwater, having a hard time breathing or in a tightly confined space.
This song is best turned up at a normal volume but with the bass more on the heavy side.

The cigarette's desperate smoke breathes lonely bomb threats
Marriages, carriages, spit headaches, earthquakes -disgusting
The cigarette's desperate smoke clouds of the only cancer I'll ever need

Personal Note:
I learned about this guy very recently thanks to the show Workaholics. His song is in the beginning of the second episode of season 2 where they try to quit drinking for a week. When I heard it I was instantly hooked. It's so catchy and wobbly. Best when you got the bass turned up real loud. The entire EP this song comes off of 'Satin Panthers' is excellent. This song is the most unique song off the the EP.

Lyrics for the song below:
Brave
Free of consequence
Slaying
The camel's gash
Pine marks his passing well
One won't do
Armed twice for push up's sake
Arms like these swing a state
Arms like these hug the law
Arms like these flail when our songs hit a desert bride
Arms like these cross when they're locked in a draped pine box
Shock, it's a shock—trees in lee never leaved armies
Shock, it's a shock these trees
Shock, it's a shock—trees in lee never leaved bits of me
It's a shock, it's a shock.

Personal Note:
I love this band. They are awesome. It's 2 of my favorite genres of music in one fell swoop. Even my boyfriend likes it and hes not into the whole grindcore thing. The breakdowns are the best.
