After several requests for more videos, I got down and did one. Well… three… More like two and a half, but that’s besides the point. VIDEOS!!!
Video 1: A lot of people highly favor heavy pomades over anything lighter, at least when it comes to hold and styling, and when I started out, I had to agree. But, I’ve learned a couple of tricks here and there, which made me come to love light pomades as is. I mean, it is what they used in-the-day! So, hopefully this little trick will help you cats feel the same!
Video 1.5: This video is just a follow up from video 1, showing that the trick indeed does work! I went out for a couple of hours to run some errands. The day was hot, the windows were rolled down to catch a cool breeze, and the hair held nicely! And no, I did not recomb the pomp!
Video 2: In other videos and posts, I’ve mentioned that the ducktail was one of the most important details to a pomp, that is often left out. But, I also left out this important detail- slicked down sides! With a comb and a brush, you can only get the sides slicked down so much. But if you want your sides lookin’ super slicked, you might wanna invest in a nice boar hair brush! And please, don’t get them confused with badger hair brushes used for shaving!
Hopefully, you cats dig these tips and tricks!
Until the next time.
Stay Greasy and Pomp Hard.

I don’t remember how I stumbled upon this band, but right when I did, I was hooked. A friend of mine tried to say that Murder City Devils is greasier than them, I don’t think so. Sorry Nick.
The Violent Shifters are some greasy mother fuckers. Everything is just greasy. The cars, the lifestyle, the music, the image, everything. Not too many bands are really this greasy, in my honest opinion anyways. Yeah, a lot of bands are into old cars, fast cars, but how many actually work hands on? Doesn’t seem like there are many out there.
The sound this band puts out there is loud, gritty, and straight up raw.
The Violent Shifters – Ponytail and Black Cadillac
There isn’t too much out there from this band, aside from their Myspace page, which doesn’t seem to be getting a lot of love. Which really shows the under appreciation for this band, from people outside of Minneapolis.
Here’s a little segment about the band, from their drummer Erik Johnson.
Oh, and you can’t forget. You can’t be a greasy band without some greasy hair! Here’s a little piece from their DVD, Lucky Bastards Car Club.
In all, this is a badass band. Hopefully they tour or at least have tour dates up on their page, and come back into The Bay Area. I’m sure they’d put on an awesome show.
