Lunatics come in all shapes and forms. Some come in the form of George W Bush or Donald Trump while others come in the form of wacky mullets, ciggies and VB.
Melbourne’s ragged party lads Lunatics On Pogosticks absolutely deliver the later, with wild times and ludicrous tracks such as Less Than Sober and Masturbate Until I Cry – each perfect to crank at your alcohol / MDMA fuelled house parties.
Stock up on ciggies and crack open a cold tinnie, it’s time to party with loose units Lunatics On Pogosticks and their DIY video for MDMAtes.
Following the release of their 2014 EP Sleeping Till The Weekend, the trio have been preparing their latest efforts which will be displayed on their forthcoming album. We have recently been blessed with the debut single from the album entitled MDMAtes; a oddball track which follows the perplexing life of a drug dealer who lives in a kitchen with his pet snakes. MDMAtes is loaded with jangling guitars – smothered in reverb, along with the bizarre combination of humour and catchy melodies likened to numerous pop songs.
We have now been graced with the official music video to this anomalous track, and as expected the video deliveres the same goofy vibes throughout. Money obviously wasn’t an issue here and gratefully so. Homemade videos such as this one always fit these boys perfectly; perpetuating the endearing and lovable attitude these boys always bring to the table. I mean with videos such as this one who wouldn’t want to be their ‘MDMAte’?
We follow the boys around on their misadventures. Whether they’re chilling in the park, screwing around at the local 7/11, or partying at what suspiciously looks like a blue light disco, the Pogo boys show they know how to have a good time. The DIY style suits them well. The camera is a voyuer, following them around on their messy rampage through the streets. It’s the kind of nonchalant, absurd thing we expect from these loveable larakins.
Having played alongside high class acts such as DZ Deathrays, Grinspoon, and Bad//Dreems, the boys have certainly been making a name for themselves; demonstrating their live chops to keep up with the big names. If you’re wanting to spruce up your summer with drunken mosh pits drenched by sweat and classic VB tinnies, make sure you catch Lunatics On Pogosticks on the road for their East Coast tour next February!
