This band – sigh. They used to call themselves Reptile (&) Retard and the video alone – I get panicky as soon as I see people moshing at something different than a punk concert because it’s no fun getting shubbed around, I wanna see the goddamn band and not your sweaty armpits shoved in my face, m’kay?
Anyways, this song is so addictive, the ridiculous lyrics, the repetition, the energy. I am quite curious how the rest of their set sounds because it does remind me a lot of “fa fa fa” by Datarock which in the end was a fantastic song to a so so album (never build an album around one song, it will be the death of it). However, given the energy in the video they seem to be one hell of a live band and those are a must in the music scene (like most people love ska concerts but no one owns a single ska album). Although I do think that if the energy level stays up on the album, it could be really great.
Best of all: DUDUDUDUDUDUDUDUDUDUDUDUDUDUDUDU Yeah, that’s the stuff and it will never leave your head, popping up into your mind at the most inappropriate moments to manifest itself as a hardcore earworm.
PS: sorry, this post came off extremely condescending but I assure you, I love that song, it’s the b-bomb.
Oh, and this video seems to prove that they are a lot more than DUDUDUDUDUDUDUDUDU. But I really won’t be anywhere the center in front of the stage crowdsurfing and moshing are the awkward music nerd’s nightmare (that and standing in front of the band at eye-level, it’s pure elevator-tension).
