Just got sent to me.
I dunno...I've missed out on it.
I'm a little obsessed with them now...I just
I just...can't..y'know... words..
I've heard about this band, but it wasn't until I watched this that I realised that the drummer is my mate's brother. I've slept in his bed. He's a really good drummer actually.
watch it again, but concentrate on the faces of the other guys. Look at the emnity between them all and Ray.
presumably it's a pisstake. Single out on Brainlove records soon?
I thought he said psychedelia then rewatched it.
I really don't think I can watch it again
"It's like Delia Smith style, y'know, psychedelia-smith."
as I lie awake trying to think of other celebrity chef/music related puns
Do Ram Say Think
Yes. I'm win.
are we allowed musicals?
and someone's STILL beaten you to the MySpace URL.
Try finding any job at all in America, you fucking spoiled bitch.
God that was fucking disgusting.
that guy is chode central
"I can't stop can't stop thinkin' 'bout doin' a line. But last time I promised myself it'd be the last time."
but yeah it deserves to be seen by a wider audience.
i'm going to see them on thursday, probably just to laugh more than anything.
But this "related video" is pretty good. Made me laugh a great deal.
AND the lead singer are called...
spinal tap style?
"If you stuck Iggy Pop, James Brown, David Bowie and Shirley Bassey in a lift then you'd probably have our band."
"I'd be at home, knocking up some beats or whatever on reason or logic or ableton or whatever then we kinda get together and MASH two types of song, sort of a hybrid of styles"
"Shit, what if he just alienated all the kids who like rock. HELP BRAIN HELP! GIVE ME SOMETHING TO SAY. PUNK! THAT'S IT, PUNK!!!"
What with this, and the fact they feature both the singer from Rootjoose and the drummer from Reef, Kubb are starting to look like an unstoppable nexus of awfulness.
The lineup: Ray Gun (vocals and "sonic experimentation"), The Adj ("war guitar"), Ben Lyonsmyth ("hip shaker"), Sam Embery ("pace maker").
he dissects blue hedgehogs?
'Sam Embery ("pace maker")'
It all fits! They're pensioners! 'Ben Lyonsmyth ("hip shaker")' had better be careful!
outside! + where is the rootjoose link?
They were brilliant!!!
If brilliant means Reef-a-like ear-rape by funky wacky abortion-adverts in silly hats.
they were my favourite band as a teenager, i met them many times and harry shared his kit kat with me! :) rootjoose rocked!
"Tomorrow's new band: Hollywood Undead."
The band that put out a single with Agyness Deyn on vocals and it still sold the square root of fuck all!
:( / :'D
But I don't mind some of their tunes.
Oh they make me laugh... They're KERAZEEEEE
Nazi Zombies co-op with flamethrower and ray gun
theres loads worse out there. pretty embarrasing all the same
I like the way the singer keeps glancing over at the beardy one to make sure he's not in trouble though.
cause hes waiting for him to add his pre-rehearsed comment of "theres a bit of punk in there too", as the singer didnt want to appear like he was saying everything, but of course, he failed terribly at that...
Also, hes a prime example of someone who DOES NOT suit eyeliner one bit... like my flatmate... bejesus...
or sadly real...
Im hoping for the former.
Rather than sounding like a glammed up version of the fucking Hoosiers.
but there's a good ten percent of me that thinks they're actually up and doing something with their lives y'know, and, even though they appear to be absurd cunts.....at least they're doen summit.
but this feeling soon passes and i start to fantasise about all the rotten, flithly, nasty, painful things i'd inflict upon ray and blaise....we should get those two together....kids would literally be falling at their feet...all the punks and skins and rastas, together as one...they'd heal the world...
The one who's obsessed with Jeremy.
And to all ye naysayers...look at the current Radio 1 C playlist:
Amazing stuff. In a way I kind of admire the fact that they are so obviously not aware of how ridiculous they sound.
He's playing the Odd Couple theme song. Jokesssss.
australian brass eye/ christopher guest type thing. SURELY? Even if they have a single out it could still be a joke. spinal Tap did albums...
It's the only thing referenced on their Wiki page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raygun_(band)
Why exactly has it become a viral?
I do kind of fear we're all going to make Raygun, in this laughing stock mode getting their name out, some kind of Brokencyde with major label backing, and hence worse than you can possibly imagine.
"This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Sony BMG Music Entertainment."
So say the NME, anyway:
but i don't think a disproportionately egotistical band are BIG NEWS. Musicians are quite often egotists...it happens.
I've definitely seen worse
by Psychedelia Smith somewhere. I always thought it was a top name for a band
The fanzine that me and my housemates wrote had a regular cookery column by 'Psychedelia Smith'
It's been pulled. Seems Sony didn't appreciate Ray being made a bufoon of. Even though he did it all himself. The choicest bit, though, had to be his "I tried really hard to get a job in the music industry and job centre plus didn't help" cry.
"So What kind of positions are you prepared to look for in your job search?"...
"Actually, on the boards over there is a job which would entail A&Ring for Sony. we've been trying to find a candidate for months..."
That'll be Independent columnist and sometime Scritti Politti member Rhodri Marsden, then.
How did they get signed to a major label? Who is this going to appeal to? They are literally an "indie" spinal tap.
The second part of the video is even worse. "Not being able to use equipment properly," "It's like facebook thing when you're invited to something and you've got yes, no, or maybe," "Happy synths." Sony would've trained them for the media, this has got to be a joke. Did they have a producer?
When he says "Happy synths", I just want to strap a knife to my fist and repeatedly punch him in the face.
was a song of theirs that was on the radio 1 playlist? I thought it was an off the cuff remark, but to actually back that stupid title with a "song"...wtf?!
I was in tears laughing at "MSPaint... or solitaire"
"when was the last time you had fun, was it the last time you felt young"
The problem is the number of hits a band get on youtube, facebook etc. is so important to a major and they don't know when it's ironic viewing so its a vicious circle as they'll think its going well and will pump more funds in!
I may have to watch the video again as I think I missed the Iggy Pop, James Brown, David Bowie, Shirley Bassey and of course punk influenced parts of the song the first time.
way of getting attention for the new spinal tap, yes. everyone knows raygun now, it's a scheme for sure! genius, but who would buy their records though...or go see it live....hmmm maybe it's not a very good scheme.
and hahahaha some more!
Give us some attention! We make a sound like nothing anyone's ever dreamed of before! Check us out! Omg!
Yeah, Psychedeliasmith was an act on either Skint or Wall of Sound in the late 90s. Their big 'hit' was called 'Fixy Jointy'. Can't view this at work, not even sure I want to.
after 'crabcoregate' and all that sony push it a little further.
also there are more links to the videos in this thread.
he looks like a gnome the rest of the band adopted whilst they were indulging in the perils of hedonism and now can't remember where he came from and are too embarrassed to ask
and he still sounds like 27% more of a twat.
if they were a bunch of upstarts doing it for themselves and have just got a bit carried away with themselves.
But they're apparently backed by Sony so it's difficult to feel bad about scoffing when they're surely being encouraged to ham things up to the max. The fact they've supported Pink tells it's own story.
