The Rockstar Ramblings: Porn Surfing and Beer

This week we have videos set in a church, a barn, and Oktoberfest. Pour yourself a tall boy, lock your doors, and prepare for a spiritual journey.

Los Angeles rockers HILLBILLY HERLAD have released a video for "Shame On Me", the first single from their new EP 'Sunday's Best.” The video begins when Grandma leads her timid Grandson into a church that quickly turns into a brothel/rock show. It doesn’t take long for the church service to start and even less time for a girl to be sitting on the boys lap. Oh, and apparently she doesn’t wear panties in church. In the background there is a rock show happening and it’s assumed everyone is doing blow. Coolest. Grandma. Ever…

The German rock band, V8 WANKERS, have released a video for "Got Beer", the first single from their upcoming album of the same name. I’ve never been, but this is EXACTLY how I picture Oktoberfest. Lots of drunken dudes, lots of large beer steins, and a rollercoaster (to enjoy after a couple tall boys). What? No thanks. Hold the rollercoaster please…

In May the VIETCONG PORNSURFERS will release their second album, 'We Spread Diseases', through Dangerous Rock Records. The band has released a video for "Selfdestructive", the album's latest single. It’s always great to see young bands embracing rock music. The lead singers voice freaks me out a bit, but love the twist of punk incorporated into this tune…

German rockers TORPEDOHEAD have released a brand new video for "Red City Lights", the second promo single of the band's successful album 'Greetings From Heartbreak Key.” Supposedly this video was shot in a barn in the backwoods of the infamous Heartbreak Key. Anytime I see a table top full of liquor and overflowing ashtrays I remind myself, now this is a place a man can get some thinking done. The setup is oddly similar to the table we saw during Charlie Sheen’s melt down a couple years back. The same smoke covered table where he was trying to figure out how to make the next Major League movie. Crazy Times Indeed…
