Greetings All! Manualist, Tire Pumpist and Comic Jim Rotondo at your service for Parody Lyrics & Recordings.
I cut my musical teeth on my older brother’s Cream records in 1968, have played acoustic and lead electric guitar for decades and somehow music found its way into the palms of my hands and my $10 K-Mart Bicycle Tire Pump. You’ll notice there’s a “certain sound” in my parody recordings (mostly Classic Rock) consisting of tire pump vibrato, handfarts, guitars when necessary, and vocals that are usually sped up by 20-35 percent…those are my products. If Clapton is God then Weird Al must be the Savior of parodies as we know them and I find myself stuck right in between these two masters. WHY HANDFARTS? What else for an 8th grader to do? WHY TIRE PUMPING? Something to give my hands a rest during comedy club acts. WHERE HAVE THESE ODDITIES GOTTEN ME? On the Tonight Show, Donny & Marie, a finalist on AFV, HBO’s 2007 Comedy Festival in Aspen and many local TV appearances in the Philly area just to name a few. As a solo act, you may know me as Jimi Handtrix. As a duo you may have heard of the Four Squeezins (2 manualists/4 hands). As a trio, The Three Tendons (we sat in with the Pottstown Symphony Orchestra) and a few years ago I was a member of the Pennsylvania Hand Band on America’s Got Talent. By day I’m an Office Manager for a church and a Web Design Professional and have always had a passion for puns and parodies. Feel free to Email Me at any time for customized parodies.
