Skinny Hobos - The Merchant of Tirau (Official Video)

Thank the devil for more local NZ music. I was beginning to suffer some serious rocknroll withdrawl, which is never ideal. Ha this is a funny video by Skinny Hobo's who I saw preform live last year and have been meaning to see for ages (sadly couldn't make it too Galatos as I got really sick on vodka which was awful!!). But man the power and riff off this song is bloody brilliant. I looked at their instagram photos and saw how many amps they used to track the guitar in the studio and I'm glad it all worked out. I also really dig the drum flourshies and fills. When I first heard the track it reminded me of the Offspring a band that was big in NZ when I was growing up. The video is one hell of hilliarous journey and the music blogger getting schooled cracked me up! nice one :)looking forward to a record from the guys soon
