Hunx and His Punx' New Video for "Bad Boy" Is Shitty-Awesome

And it gets better.
  • And it gets better.

Yes, we used the word awesome in a headline. But this here new clip for "Bad Boy" is pretty awesome ... in a shitty, Desperate Living kind of way. We spoke with Hunx's Seth Bogart the day after he and the band filmed this vid, and while his original comments didn't make our interview, we'll share the hilarity here:


We filmed a video [for "Bad Boy"] yesterday for five hours and then we realized nothing got recorded. And no one turned into a diva or anything. We just started laughing and then we just did it over.

[...]

We had Shannon's brother  [Dan Shaw]  do it on VHS and it looks like Wayne's World, like an '80s home video. It looks shitty -- it's amazing. It's just black and then there's these giant musical notes and then were had a fog machine and then we wore like ... Brandy did all this like punk makeup on us. It looks good. It's shit, it's really crappy.

Right, so doesn't that sound like a recipe for awesomeness? Check this thing out, the video for "Bad Boy," off of new album Too Young to Be In Love:

Shitty awesome? Awesomely shitty? Or just shitty? What would you call this?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
