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.”
Nobody at Disney is safe from Garek’s quest for authenticity, including Nick Jonas. Well, nobody but Miley Cyrus — he’s got no beef with her.
