It’s a Black Sweater Massacre with the Reigning Monarchs

When you roll in LA comedy circles, you don’t meet a lot of men who are inclined towards the sartorial. Greg Behrendt, though, is an exception. Behrendt (above, left) is one of the funniest standups in the country, but he’s also a man who’s deeply passionate about clothes. He even has shears and a needle and thread tattooed on one arm.

When Greg isn’t behind a standup mic, he fronts the band The Reigning Monarchs with his friend Michael Eisenstein (Letters to Cleo). Their music is a bit like the soundtrack of a lost B-movie about beach babes driving hot rods. Exciting, driving and totally instrumental.

Below is the title track from their new album… highly recommended. You can grab the album from their site for $7 now.

Our pal Greg Behrendt is the only standup comedian we know with sartorially-themed tattoos. His great instrumental rock band The Reigning Monarchs plays music that sounds like the soundtrack to an awesome movie that doesn’t exist yet, and they’re raising money on IndieGoGo to make a new record and head out on tour in 2013. To celebrate the holiday, they posted this lovely holiday tune… “God Rest Ye Merry Sweatermen.” Seriously, these guys LOVE cardigans.
