OFF! have released another video. These guys are spoiling us eh? There seems to be a constant stream of promo material emanating from them. And rest assured, as fast as they throw it at us we’ll throw it back at you. This one’s a total doozy. Possible contender for video of the year in fact. I should shut up & just let you enjoy right? Ok.
First things first, the quip in the title is theirs not our’s.
This video’s a peach. Not only do you get an OFF! video with OFF! music but it’s also seriously witty. AND we get two tracks of the band’s blistering hardcore for our money, rather than the more normal one. Both tracks are from their recently released self titled album which was one of our favourite albums from the first half of the year. If you haven’t already got a copy you should consider investing.
Remember when you used to record Noel Edmonds Swapshop on a dodgy VHS video back in the 70’s / 80’s? Of course not, if you’re old enough you’d have been watching Tiswas (you are LTW readers after all right?). But if you had done so this is what playing it back would be like. With added OFF! for your entertainment.
That, of course, is anglicising it. In reality this video is based on a US TV show & Stereogum managed to track down the original clip from the original show. I know, I just thought it was a skit too. Those Americans eh? So if you’d like to compare & contrast the two video’s here you go:
