Episode 193: The Gadjits w/ Brandon and Adam Phillips

The Gadjits were an American ska and rock and roll band from Kansas City, Missouri, United States. Formed by the brothers Brandon, Zach, and Adam Phillips they were signed as young bucks to Hellcat Records in 97. They released 3 albums on that label before heading to Thick Records, then RCA where they were dropped when Clive Davis took over. From there they went on to create more bands such as The Architects, Brandon Phillips & The Condition, and Other Americans.

My old band Lanemeyer played a few gigs with these kids on the road back in the day and I was beyond stoked to get them on the podcast to chat about life. The following is what we chat about:

  • Constantly being in bands with each other
  • Playing with Rancid as teenagers
  • How were they treated as being a young band
  • The Wix
  • Hellcat Records 
  • Changing over to The Architects
  • The Gallows
  • The fucking crazy Bosstones show brawl
  • Grossing each other out
  • Drug use
  • The Canadian Booking Agent story
  • And a ton more
