The musical duo Man on Man who are intent on "staring down" homophobia, ageism, and xenophobia in their music, and their latest single celebrates gay love in this time of quarantine. Roddy Bottum (Faith No More, Imperial Teen, Nastie Band, CRICKETS) and his boyfriend Joey Holman (Holman, Cool Hand Luke) bring us "Baby You're My Everything".
The accompanying video is a "wander into the baptism of rainbowed fellowship". It was filmed on an iPhone while sheltering-in-place in Oxnard, California and reflects the duo's "mission to break down gatekeeper walls of straight and LGBTQIA+ establishments".
“There was a magnification of emotions in isolation that we focused on and the intensity of our union took on an almost spiritual nature. Our musical references were gospel and choir combined with dirty, drone-y rock. It's a love song about adoration and soul and relationship in the modern age.”
The band actually met with national attention when their debut single “Daddy” was removed from YouTube for violating their “sex and nudity policy” as reported by Rolling Stone. The video contained neither and was later reinstated with an apology for the mistake.
Not only a good song but a cool video to boot – I hope they release a record on vinyl – I will be sure to purchase – Good job guys – and thanks to Tower Records for posting this song for all to see
