Video Exclusive! Mad Daddy: Ride With MeVideo Exclusive! Mad Daddy: Ride With Me

‘High-octane Rock ‘n’ Roll Punk Blues band from the Isle of Man’, Mad Daddy are fast becoming favourites not only of LTW, but every single punk rock’n’roll website worldwide.  We are proud to host the exclusive, first showing anywhere of their new video. And it’s a classic. 

Their eponymous album we called ‘ Probably the best all-energy, full-throttle punk rock’n’roll blues debut you will hear all year.’ But not without pointing out that they ’employ every testosterone-soaked rock’n’roll cliche unapologetically, like Lemmy and Iggy before them. Their metaphorical cock swings like an alligators tail between their legs…’.

Covering their previous video for Give It To Me I mocked their haircuts and style.   As you can see from the sharply edited and fun-packed video, they play-up to the stereotypes of bird-flippin’ rockabilly heartbreaker, mad-muppet UK82 mohawk, wired sneering bass-monster and effortlessly cool guitar hero. Like the original line-up Damned, this is a band with four distinct characters all vying for attention.

Hats off to video-makers Open Water Films who have done a great job yet again – green-screen trickery and catching the band at their goofy, sneering best.

The video is just cool, funny and rocks. It’s one of the fastest songs on the album and the band just seem to be having such a laugh. It’s an irresistible combination.

And if you are ever hitch-hiking on the Isle of Man… do not accept a lift from these strange men!

The album is still available on CD, green vinyl or download from here.

Keep an eye on their Facebook for gigs, tours etc.
