Hell hath no fury like a cog in the Disney music machine scorned.
After moving to New York City with big musical dreams, Wisconsin-born Garek scored an internship at a music production house writing and singing demos for the likes of Disney and Nickelodeon — fun, right?!
Well, not quite.
The assembly-line nature of the kids corporate music scene proved a poor fit for the out musician, and we really can’t blame him there. So the ghostwriter-gone-rogue turned his talents on the beast that trained him, and now he’s released a video for “Goddamn Dizzy Kids,” a direct attack at the pop-house synthetic industry.
Whether or not you dig his particular stylings, how can you not grab the popcorn for this shade-fest?
“I was tired of making music for the machine,” Garek explains. “So, instead of feeding the machine, I set out to starve it. For ‘Goddamn Dizzy Kids’, I used the formulas I was privy to as a ghostwriter (big, bouncy choruses, bright, catchy hooks and contemptible, chantey nonsense), but used it in a way that allowed me to spread my message. I refuse to settle for the sea of mediocrity that has become the standard for this generation’s music.”
