Godfather Pete by John GallagherThe Godfathers and War On Women : great new videos!

Two very different, most excellent bands from opposite sides of the Atlantic: all they have in common is the electric guitar (+bass/drums/vocal) as their weapon of choice and a ferocious, ‘take no shit’ attitude.   And the fact they have both today released superb videos of tracks from their latest albums…


First up, The Godfathers.  Peter Coynes be-suited mobster rock’n’roll band  Forever gigging and working harder than ever.  ‘Miss America’ – from their most recent album ‘A Big Bad Beautiful Noise’ (reviewed here) was devised, edited & directed by John Gallagher. Fusing iconic American imagery & building up to an apocalyptic ending John has done a FANTASTIC job.    Check out his beautifully stylised art here .   ENJOY!!

American Activist punk band War On Women released their second album Capture the Flag in April.  I reviewed it here  and it is a powerful piece of work.  They are, according to their PR , “A group that not only thrives onstage—the Shawna Potter-led outfit pummels everything in their path. The quartet are bringing a piece of their live show to screens everywhere with a new live video for their hook-laden track “Pleasure And The Beast.” Watch the video—shot and chopped by Seannie Cameras of Metrospective Media at Ottobar in Baltimore last April”

WoW – spreading their message of equality and empowerment one song and one gig at a time. Currently touring the US -some dates with UK’s Subhumans.
