Modern Orthodox punk band The Groggers are known for tangling with controversial issues. From their first viral video hit, “Get,” to one of their latest, “Jewcan Sam (A Nose Job Love Song)” about, well, getting a nose job, the band has drawn equal measures of enthusiasm and scorn.
Last May, Groggers front man L.E. Staiman announced the group’s hiatus and a forthcoming move to Los Angeles to pursue a solo career. It seemed as though the band would not be heard from for some time.
Then, Mindy Meyer’s New York State Senate campaign happened. (For those who haven’t yet heard of the 22-year-old loud-talking Flatbush native who bills herself the “Diva of the District,” check out Simi Lampert’s coverage for the Forward here, here, here and here.) On Thursday, The Groggers released a new video, “Mindy.” Naturally, it’s a love song.
