God bless this interweb thingy. Seven years ago, I wrote about the '80s Dutch hardcore band known as BGK (right here, in fact). Things were primitive back then: hell, I couldn't even figure out how to upload a cover picture to my entries, and Youtube?? Never heard of it. It's now 2011 and apparently there's little reason to leave your house and interact w/ other humans, and in that spirit, I present the clip above. The visuals will not thrill you, but the music just might. I'm playing the LP, Nothing Can Go Wrogn!, just this minute. I have been flashbacked 24 years and once again realised why I dug this record so much at the time. Like the best HC, it's a pure adrenalin rush. The track known as "Jonestown Aloha" by BGK puts ants in my pants and makes me want to dance on a hippie's face. That's all I'm sayin'.
