OFF! have released another video. These guys are spoiling us eh? There seems to be a constant stream of promo material emanating from them. 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 mine.
Two tracks of the bands blistering hardcore for the price of 1 plus a witty video. No idea why kids are down on this band. They’re seriously fucking ace as far as I’m concerned.
So, the video. 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. And you’re probably not old enough. 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:
