BAG, the zany, vaudevillian rock group from the 80’s, releases their demented holiday song, Easter Day, a live recording from the legendary club, CBGB, in New York City, courtesy of Great Egg Music. Lead performer Marc A. Gallo, along with members Patrick Callen on bass and Scott Grande on drums and percussion, tells the tale of a man recounting the harrowing discovery as a child that the myth of the elusive Easter egg was just that, a myth.
Easter Day is perhaps one of BAG’s most iconic songs and performances. Gallo, wearing a colorful egg helmet on stage, theatrically conveys this tale as if it happened yesterday. The dramatic yet sad scene of him confronting his Mother is particularly comical. Gallo confides, “Look, as a young boy, abandoning the quest for the elusive Easter egg was quite devastating, especially when my Mother told me to stop. And as you can see, I’m still not over it.”
Easter Day Live, performed at CBGB in NYC, was released by Great Egg Music on Friday April 10, 2020. It’s available on most music streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. It was also featured on The Dr. Demento Show on Saturday April 11, 2020.
