Mother’s Day may be about flowers, cards, brunch and family time, but this year the “ladies” of The Big Ditties just don’t give a %$#@! It is ‘Me Time’ all the time for the comedy band threesome straight outta Chicago as they unleash their outrageous new video for “Mom Just Quit The Band!” on Trump’s America today at their channel on Funny Or Die.
Guaranteed to warm the hearts of mothers everywhere and give them an enormous laugh ahead of their big day, the wacktarded video depicts a kid’s birthday party gone totally ape shit – and the song for the video was actually inspired by true events. Says Dittie DJ K-Heyyy, “I was at a school event when the kids were doing karaoke on stage and they were AWFUL. So I had this whole image in my head of The Big Ditties pushing the kids out of the way and taking over and showing them how it’s done. Also the hook being ‘Mom, just quit the band!’ means ‘Mom give up your dreams and grow up!!” and I loved the idea of us being like ‘Hell no! Why should we?!’”
DJ K-Heyyy – a mom who has worked with Hall of Famers like Better Than Ezra and Edwin McCain and has had original songs in films starring Oscar-winners Keanu Reeves and Mia Tyler – is joined in The Big Ditties by Tu-PO, another mom with a background in classical and jazz (huh?!) and primordial libertine Ad-Rik who serves as the “anti-mom”, giving the other two a lot of hell in their songs for squeezing out babies in the first place.
Heartwarming all around, they were even banned for life from Chicago’s City Winery — I guess staging having your own kids forcibly removed from the stage was offensive to some “proper” parents.
Basically these thug-divas out-do Bad Moms and they are coming to help you laugh your domesticated face off.
The Big Ditties are currently in the process of getting unbanned from City Winery, collecting their sick kids from school and plotting an upcoming debut album that will include such wholesome fare as “Your Pussy’s In Love With Your Best Friend’s Husband”. Album release and touring info coming soon… you’ve been warned.
