Tiger By The Tail's "Summertime at the Beach"
You may have read about this one on TJ Honeysuckle's Last Tram Home blog. I know summer ended in Australia a few days ago but I don't give a rat's arse and neither do Tiger By The Tail, I guess. They're Dave Thomas from Bored!'s "other band" and if you're wondering about the "cops on the beach theme" of the clip, it's all to do with some absurd riot in Sydney a year ago.
I've only been lucky enough to catch TBTT live once and they're pretty damn fine; a little less direct than Bored!, quite different from everyone else in a Dinosaur Jr sort of way. I haven't caught up with the new album ("Unitshifter") yet but there's a glowing review here.
