The Vids Are Alright


About TVAA

This blog is about music videos. If you want to know what I think of the songs, you can find my exciting and witty opinions at The Singles Jukebox.






This is the first track on Elastica, and contains the pleasant sounds of drummer Justin retching. Nice! The lyrics are pretty wretched (“She’s a hormonal nightmare — do you care?”) but Annie’s bassline is totally solid, propping up the vomiting and the out-of-sync guitars. It’s just as swaggery and lopsided, but meaty enough to push the song along, like six pints of bitter propelling you up and down Chalk Farm Road looking for somewhere still open that will sell you blue Rizlas.

My stint over at One Week One Band continues with Plagiarism Tuesday! The video to Elastica’s “Line Up” is both Very Strange and Not Very Good. The sections where Donna is just sitting there awkwardly are my favourite.
