Video Nasties – Jellybean

Video Nasties– Jellybean

The high pitched distortion of raw guitar and that inevitable kick of the drums can only mean one thing! Another Strokes copycat. All that’s missing is the same addled ‘huh!’ and swaggering hoarse tones that can only come come from a mouth with a cigarette hung effortlessly from once corner.

Instead of Julian Casablancas and his smoky tales of the New York, Video Nasties offer the raw dissonance of a north London megaphone that certainly wouldn’t sound unusual coming from the crumbling shed of their early practice sessions.

One single can never say much, but it’s hard to even hear the merest hint of the likes of Sonic Youth and Sebadoh they claim as influences. Instead, this is simple, stripped down garage (well, shed) rock, bristling with an unfounded, never resolved aggression that you just know shall never be addressed or progressed no matter how many albums they may have. Straight to video.

Release Date: 23 Mar

5.5/10
