Denton, Texas’ Video features members of that city’s finest garage rockers. Folks from Bad Sports, Wax Museums, Wiccans, and more form to make Video, a band that sounds absolutely nothing like any of its progenitors. The press release describes the band as taking its sound from such diverse influences as Chrome, Alice Cooper, and Hawkwind, and damned if that isn’t accurate.
The vocals bring to mind vintage Alice Cooper, and that super-clean, super-stripped rhythm section definitely apes Chrome, and the whole epic psych-rock thing? Hawkwind, to a T. This is the sort of band that you put on for other people, and they respond with, “Whoa. Who’s this?” Pre-order for their debut LP, Leather Leather, is available now from Play Pinball Records. The first pressing of 500 comes in custom die-cut sleeves. Check out the pre-order page to see how sweet they look.
