Violent Soho ‘Like Soda’

For the first single off their soon to be released album ‘Waco’, the band’s brief for the corresponding music video was simple: Crackerjack meets First Date

Step 1: Make yourself forget that the budget is 1/100th of the Blink 182 reference

Step 2: Find a bowls club whose greens are still recovering from the 2012 Brisbane floods and whose super helpful staff will therefore allow musicians to cavort on the playing fields

Step 3: Buy a small drone and practise flying it at least twice

Step 4: Confirm your public liability insurance is still in place

Step 5: Assemble a first-rate cast & crew including ambitious makeup artists who will attempt old-man-ifying on a fraction of the required budget

Step 6: Pray no-one cops a drone to the head, and that the latex won’t melt off the band’s faces in 35 degree heat.
