Gutter Twins music video: explosion porn

I've posted previously about the Gutter Twins, the new band from Greg Dulli of Afghan Whigs and Mark Lanegan of Screaming Trees and Queens of the Stone Age. The Gutter Twins just released their first second music video and it's a hoot. The clip, for the song Idle Hands, features a group of bored young fellows causing mayhem with sledgehammers, bowling balls, and plenty of homebrew explosives. Link

  1. The vocals are too far out front. They should visit the mainland for a nice re-mixing.

  2. Ooh. Thanks.

    It’s the second video, though — there’s one for “All Misery/Flowers” here.

    This has been a Public Service Announcement from the Geek Need for Precision Foundation. *g*

  3. This song owes a huge debt of thanks to “The Bit,” the leadoff track on The Melvins’ “Stag.”

  4. Homemade explosives seem cool, but they can kill you — even if you’re a smart guy, things go wrong! This is what happened to another Caltech student in my year, in 1998 — killed by a homemade bomb that accidentally went off too soon. I didn’t know him well, but I’m always sad when I hear about people playing with explosives. Sorry to be such a downer, but it’s a tragic end for a geek.

  5. This song would be better if it was Idle Hands by the Murder City Devils.

    Goddamn if it isn’t on Sub Pop too.

  6. Oh my gawd, but don’t you know this video is encouraging the kids to go out an’ make their own bombs? What would happen if them ter’rists got a hold of it? I find this highly irresponsible.

  7. What is it with guys and blowing things up? If that was a bunch of girls they’d be doing something far more constructive with their idle time like, say, destroying someone’s reputation with vicious rumors.

  8. The concept for this music video was derived directly from a youtube short created by my brother and myself. After viewing it, the director contacted us for ideas and we ended up starring and assisting with the fx.
