Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new video by Archie and The Bunkers ! If you like synth-punk, you will be into this. Taking the sheer mania from The Screamers and the cold 1984-esque synths from The Units, this brother duo kicks out some chaotic clashing. "She's a Rockin' Machine" features what may even be an homage to Tomata Du Plenty's scream in its first few seconds before thrashing forward into a garage rock meets retro-future-punk hybrid. It's savage and mean, is what we are saying.
You can pre-order the band's new album right here and check out the new video, right now!
The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club's name is derived from The Standells' 1966 hit 'Dirty Water' which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.
Past performers have included The White Stripes (voted by Q Magazine as one of the top 10 gigs of all time, Mojo one of the top 30 and Kerrang one of the top 100!), The Gories, Country Teasers, Black Lips, NOBUNNY, Kid Congo Powers, The Fleshtones, Billy Childish, Radio Birdman, The Dirtbombs, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, The 18.104.22.168's, The Horrors and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to name just a few. The club has also seen some original '60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.
Their in-house record label, Dirty Water Records, is one of the leading garage/beat/(real) R&B labels in the world.
