Broken Social Scene – Texico Bitches

Featuring more topless oil fighting than an average Jason Statham movie, Broken Social Scene’s latest video is all topical and stuff (OMG, OIL IS LIKE SOOOO BAD). Two opposing oil factions gather the only couple of people in the office who haven’t got face paint on, shove them into suits and make them fight in the middle of a field until death (or the end of the song…). Clearly, it’s one of the more poignant messages of our times, a true knife in the heart of all those oil fat cats out there.

Tiresome sarcasm aside, those moving pictures you can see above are backed by a song. It’s Broken Social Scene’s new single, of course! Coming from their latest full length LP ‘Forgiveness Rock Record’, it’s a pretty irresistible combination if military drum beats, precision guitar work and the word ‘bitches’, over and over again, hell, it’s even got some yelps. Regrettably, it is missing Michael Cera on bass though… Although it’s only a matter of time before two of Canada’s very finest exports come together and make sweet musical love all over your ears.
