Bingo Fighter - Single/Video Review: Sexy Rock

15 Nov 2019 // A review by Darryl Baser

Well it’s always good to have a little levity in life, and Bingo Fighter’s video and single release fits that brief to a tee.

There have been some great piss-taking bands and musicians over the years, from the great Victor Borge, to ‘Weird’ Al Yankovic. It’s unsure if Bingo Fighter want to pitch themselves headlong into that genre, but Sexy Rock is definitely not to be taken too seriously.

The video begins with the band’s singer kissing the camera, then leaping about a bit. Scene two is the singer hanging out on his couch with a large teddy bear, which features a lot in the video. The band miming to the track shots are a masterclass in straight face piss-takery.

As a song Sexy Rock has a great bass line and is a well written tune following the intro, verse, pre-chorus chorus etc pattern. The middle 8 is a thing of beauty, breaking the fourth wall in video, and as a song, as the singer narrates what a middle 8 does: "then fuck around with the melody…then build it up", the song returns to the chorus.

Kind of reminds me of Steriogram, the band members are all clearly talented, and don’t take themselves too seriously. This song could be the hit of the summer.

Rating: ( 3 / 5 )
 

About Bingo Fighter

Bingo Fighter gets it’s sound from a fresh approach with emphasis on harmonic interest and variation all with a strong rhythmic component, and has been influenced by everything, with the exception of anything lame.

Hayden has created many interesting YouTube videos to accompany the demos, plays open mic nights and busks to enhance his performance skills. Bingo Fighter's audience is growing and over the coming months will be recording some of his music for release to the wider audience.

Andrew Masseurs - EP Review: She’s So Nasty
19 Sep 2020 // by Darryl Baser
Well, being either a PC softy or a bit of a feminist, I didn’t warm to the title track She’s So Nasty, but being a professional I opened my ears and had a listen to Andrew Masseurs’ new EP. And I’m glad I did.

22 Aug 2020 // by Darryl Baser
Being an OG (old goth or original goth) from the 1980's I love me a bit of goth. Stars and the Underground are a nice bit of goth who have just released a 7" single.

Marlin's Dreaming - Album Review: Quotidian
21 Aug 2020 // by Darryl Baser
Having been a reviewer of life and recorded music since the late 1980's, it is a rare and wonderful feeling to discover a band from my hometown who I haven’t heard of, until they drop a recording that takes my head clean off. Dunedin band Marlin’s Dreaming have released Quotidian, and are about to (Covid willing) head off on a NZ tour in late September and early October.

A Straw Assembly - Album Review: A Little More Life
28 Jul 2020 // by Darryl Baser
Right the get go this isn’t an album for the musically faint-hearted. The opening song A Saint Is Divided builds gently and beautifully into a maelstrom.

Gig Review: Nadia Reid @ Grainstore Gallery, Oamaru - 24/07/2020
25 Jul 2020 // by Darryl Baser
Flora Knight is first up, beginning with saying "Hi, I'm not Nadia". Her solo set on fiddle and singing begins with an Appalachian mountain tune about Bow weevils destroying crops, it’s a classic piece of mountain music, and a great way to open her set.
