You may know of the great Shallow Gravy or you might suck and you’re all clueless about it. WELL! I’m not here to tell you much about them other than this Sunday (8/28) after a 3 hour Venture Bros. Marathon on adult swim.
The official rundown of what the hell this is:
THE VENTURE BROS. SPECIAL – FROM THE LADLE TO THE GRAVE: THE STORY OF SHALLOW GRAVY – See the Venture Family as you’ve never seen them before: in a 15-minute documentary-style animated special. Follow the meteoric rise, the equally meteoric fall, and the decidedly un-meteor-like second coming of the most important band Hank Venture, Dermott Fitctel and H.E.L.P.eR. robot have ever been in: Shallow Gravy. If you’re hungry for rock, then open wide, because here comes a ladle of heavy metal fire and metaphoric meat drippings.
To help promote this badass doc Williams Street has released an EP for Shallow Gravy’s hit song ‘Jacket’ along with the world premiere of the music video. This is a cool and funny piece to the world of Venture. I recommend getting EP from Amazon.
Below is Shallow Gravy’s performance at the venture compounds home school prom. It’s a pretty fun track and insanely catchy as I’ve been humming it all day and annoying co-workers.
