Dead Letter Circus
Kingswood’s ‘Some Motherfucker’s Gotta Pay’ is getting mad love on the internet this week & deservedly so!
Last weekend we cruised down to the killer space at Eureka Rebellion Trading (Collingwood) for a few cheeky Asahis, Sailor Jerry’s and the world premiere of Kingswood‘s short film ‘Some Motherfucker’s Gotta Pay’.
Shot in Sydney, iconic live music venue The Annandale and rural NSW, this classic, blood & gore Tarantino-style flick is the product of Wonder World Films and features an all-star cast with Seth Sentry, Thelma Plum, Sticky Fingers, Kira Puru, surfing legend Reg Mombassa, Dan Rule (previous owner of The Annandale Hotel) and lead guitarist Alex Laska‘s wheels. What started out as the music video for their latest single ‘Ohio’ ended in a mad hilarious short with The Black Wax Widow Makers, guns, sex beasts (cars) & scandalous activities!
Love seeing indie bands re-innovate the digital space and this clip made my fucking week. What was no doubt a lot of hard work and long hours (and a shitload of fun), is made to look easy by the band and clearly displays their love for art, their music & not taking themselves too seriously.
June & July sees the Kingswood love continue with an epic run of national shows that’s kicked off this weekend including performances with Spiderbait, British India, Bertie Blackman and an action-packed line-up at River Sessions (QLD) with Bliss N Esso, Boy and Bear, Karnivool, Illy, Ball Park Music, Dead Letter Circus and many more!
Crack yourself a cold one, kick back on the couch & enjoy the ride.. Some Motherfucker’s Gotta Pay!
