VIDEO PREMIER: The Idol Dead – “Bones of You”
The Idol Dead are very much a “band’s band” and that is heavily reflected in their new video “Bones of You”. A plethora of underground rockers take part in their brand new video including Soul Remover, JD and the FDC’s, Teenage Casket Company, Silverjet, The Claire Cameron Band, Psychobabylon and Psuedonympho.
Frontman, Polly Phluid explains: “KC brought this song to the table, with half written lyrics and a full idea. We wanted to say thanks to all the fan, friends and followers that support and believe in us.
We think that other underground bands must feel the same. So, when it came to making a video, we wanted to include as many other bands as we could. We wanted to show we’re part of a solid scene, where bands and fans and fans are bands … we asked loads of bands to do it and most were really positive but then didn’t really get back to us. But, we know it’s hard work being in an underground band, so we weren’t expecting everyone to have time to do it. We’re happy with the mix here though, as the bands in this are really close to us as people as well as out on the road.”
The track itself is from their fan funded album, “Hollow Point Curses”. This is the second time successful fan funded effort from the lime tinged, Leeds based band.
“When we crowd funded the 2nd album, Dark Little Hearts, we were blown away by the support we had and how far our followers would go to help us” continues Polly. “When we came to do this album, Hollow Point Curses, we weren’t sure we could repeat that so the response blew us away. The passion and fever created by five idiots making a noise in an underground bunker was a totally surprise to us. The flip-side is we really needed to up our game so we didn’t let people down – Carl (Rossamond) our producer totally got what we were about and pulled that album right out of our hearts!”.
So with all of the love for fans, bands and people who have helped them out, who should other people check out? “There are loads of bands we love to play with on our little underground scene – from the people in this video – Psychobabylon, Modern Day Dukes, Silverjet, JD and The FDCs, Soul Remover, Pseudonympho, The Claire Cameron Band and, well, Laney 74 is in a million bands, but Teenage Casket Company really.” says Polly. “Other people who are ace: The Blacklist Saints, Honeycomb Love, White Trash Presidents, Chasing Dragons, Eureka Machines, The Kingcrows, Steroid Freak Pussy, Eva Plays Dead … I could go on”.
