Barely Dressed Records welcome Brisbane punks Good Boy to their roster with the release of their brilliant impending EP Shirk Life out Friday 10 November. Along with announcing an Australian headline tour in December, Good Boy have released a video for first single ‘Fishing With A Shotgun’. Watch below!
Produced and engineered by Tim Fitz, and mixed and mastered by Mikey Young, ‘Fishing With A Shotgun’ is a burst of hyper-intelligent garage punk energy. Infused with vitriol and incendiary lyrics, it’s the first single to come from the new EP.
The video combines 3-D animation taking aim at the absurdity and vulgarity of Pauline Hanson and right-wing politics within Australia. “Fishing With A Shotgun is a dig at the disgusting, spineless leaders that run our country, the dismal state of Australian politics and the gutless idiots too dumb and stupid to say or do anything,” says singer Rian King, “It talks about the helplessness felt by thousands of young Aussies.”
Shirk Life will be available on a limited edition 12” vinyl, packaged with their earlier standout EP Plum. You can pre-order the double EP now.
