The Rockstar Ramblings: Diseased Pornsurfers

This week it's a return by everyone's favorite Internet search phrase: Vietcong Pornsurfers. The Vietcong Pornsurfers are Tom K (vocals), Teddy (guitar), Affe (bass), and Rackarn (drums). They play what they refer to as “dangerous punk rock” and exist to make up for the lack of true cool punk rock bands. They are from Falcun, Sweden. This is where they recorded multiple demo discs and their latest album, “We Spread Diseases.” The single “Diseases” will kick off a two-month long tour through Europe, in their tour bus armed with deadly shark teeth. (True story.)

The band applies their musically “stripped down” approach to the “Diseases” video; in fact, the band is literally down to their skivvies. Also, note that the song is only 2:30 in length. I appreciate songs that are quick to the punch, make their point, and leave you wanting more. Sorry “Free Bird” fans, I just don’t have the time. Warning: Crotch shot at 0:49.

So the band is under observation in this video. Any ideas why? My first assumption is to find the methodology behind the name of the band. I mean, if there was ever a band name to not Google at work... (Note Rackarn’s cross necklace, you don’t see this as often on rock stars. It’s a nice touch.) My second assumption is that the results of the study are inconclusive, because most tests are inconclusive...
