“Come on now boys, whip your necks, unbutton your pants…”
Yeah, sorry I keep taking random weeks off. You know how it is. Anyway, let’s talk rock. Let’s talk roll. Let’s talk holy word. Let’s talk the good beards and the upstanding citizens attached to them, forming together to create what we know and love as Gay Paris. The last time we saw them round these parts was The Demarcation of Joseph Hollybone, a hoot and a holler of a clip that saw cockfighting taken to a whole new level. It also came not long after the band successfully funded the creation of their second album, The Last Good Party. This is the first video that they’ve released since TLGP dropped down on our heads like the proverbial fuck-tonne of bricks. Like most things Gay Paris do, it’s about as subtle as a hammer to the skull.
Similar to the Toot Toot Toots video from awhile back, the band have decided to go fiercely old-school in Boudoir Party – you may even say they’ve gone to biblical proportions. Yep, it’s the ol’ sermon-in-the-forest trick. You know what time it is. Time to get freaky with the lord. WELL freaky, I might add. Frontman W.H. Monks plays the preacher down to a t, getting among his pastors and getting all up in their business with a fairly convincing sermon. It culminates in a fiery ending, which sees the band spreading the good word in front of a massive bonfire. How fucking righteous. I love these guys – I get to see them this weekend for the first time in aaaaaages, and I’m pretty excited about it. You should do the same if you’re around – Friday in Sydney, Saturday in Bateman’s Bay and Sunday in Wollongong. Good times!
