PREMIERE | The Depraved New Video For Weird Sex's Stonking 'Mummy's Little Solider'

London quartet Weird Sex are a noisy bunch. On their debut release, a split EP with Broken Soundtracks that contains 8 tracks of maniacal scorched earth garage rock, their sound sees rough and ready garage rock meet blaring confrontational feedback, which atop is the depraved sneer of frontman Joey Ackland. Everything you need and more from a garage rock band, their music sounds genuinely dangerous, while they have a live show to match.

To accompany that comes a video for lead track Mummy's Little Soldier. Maybe the most confrontational of all the EP's tracks, it's accompanied by a video that matches its thundering intensity and emanating sense of danger. A video resembling a Halloween special of Nathan Barley accompanies the depraved noise, making it the EP's strongest track alongside the Butthole Surfers-like noise assault of Please Come Home, the raucous Trevor, and the warped waltz of Never Get Old.

Taking place annually in the heart of rural Oxfordshire, Truck Festival is one of the fastest growing music events in the country. Drawing in bands big and small to what never ceases to be an eclectic line-up, the festival has grown substantially over its two-decade career and last year saw 10,000 fans flock to performances from Manic Street Preachers, Everything Everything and tons more. Returning this July 21st - 23rd with an equally mind blowing programme, here are 20 reasons Truck Festival's 20th birthday celebration will be the best party of the season.

Kieran Pedder: Truck Festival 2017 Exclusive

An unlikely addition to the Truck Festival line-up poster this year is regular dude/total fuckin' babe Kieran Pedder. Just why exactly is a mystery to most. I got the low down from Pedder about how a bit of online fun may just turn into the best, if most bizarre, musical moment of the year.
