video - leather leather lp
but lucky for us not there, the texas punk rockers put out enough records to keep us happy all year long......
VIDEO is the newest project in the already creatively over flowing town of DENTON....... VIDEO is comprised of members from the BAD SPORTS and the WAX MUSEUMS, which already earns them a place in my heart.....but what makes me so stoked about their debut LP LEATHER LEATHER is how outside the normal RAMONES-influenced punk they wander........ VIDEO smashes proto-punk into a wall psychedelic noisy art punk...... fast loud driving songs that make me as happy as the first time i heard the hot snakes.....and leave all those blurry musical genre lines to the side.....all you need to know is this is the sleeper record of 2011.......
revolver writes "Denton TX's VIDEO began intending to sound like a mix between Crime, Chrome and Cream. However, the twelve songs on this debut LP end up sounding like your record collection melted into one solid album. Ranging from songs that have the primal pounding of Flipper, the space jam sessions of Hawkwind, and the lyrical bent of early Alice Cooper and Stick Men With Ray Guns, Video’s debut album should shatter all preconceptions of what Denton's punk scene can produce. Featuring members of THE WAX MUSEUMS, BAD SPORTS, WICCANS, SILVER SHAMPOO, and as many other bands that you can name, Leather Leather breaks the mold of the usual poppy, melodic punk and instead forges a new territory somewhere between punk, hard rock, and weirdo psych."
sorry state records writes "Debut 12" from this Texas band that features members of Wax Museums and Bad Sports. While I like both of those bands a lot, this LP pretty much smokes everything those bands have ever done... this has been getting a lot of buzz and for VERY good reason. It's like these guys took the weirdo aesthetic of Wax Museums, but rather than going for straightforward, Ramones-inspired punk they went for a weird concoction of garage, hardcore, and west coast punk. The result is something like if the Adolescents were a lot more lo-fi and were even bigger weirdos than they already were... still, this isn't anything like neo-Adolescents bands who listen to way more Government Warning than actual Adolescents... this is just tough, catchy as fuck punk. An absolute fucking smasher if I've ever heard one."
