Watch: Skegss – LSD
When it comes to music, we live in a pretty weird time. Decades have passed with artists filed in defined genres and it was so simple. Now, not so much. There's an outbreak of hundreds of new genres you have to be aware of. What the shit is Nu Gaze? Underwater pop? It's very awesome that there is no shortage of music, but at the same time isn't it a little exhausting?
Let Stab introduce you to Skegss. A band without complex. It's just as you hear, a slack rock band, that remind you of walking bare feet, being sunburned with stiff hair thanks to sea salt. Like Goons of Doom? You'll enjoy Skegss. It's lead by Ben Ben Bograil on vox and guitar, the recently very famous, Noa Deane also on the g, Toby Cregan, who is Stab's unofficial film director dude on bass, and Johnny Layback on drums.
Stab asked the two-string bassist, Toby Cregan, if there was anything Skegss wanted to tell the world, to which he replied, "We're just doing this band for 100 percent fun. We just wanna play shows, cruise around and drink beer... and try to make nice songs that people enjoy, derrr."
And to describe the band in three words. "Naïve, fun …and drunk. No, wait, idiot, band, beer."
Here's Skegss' first official music video, L.S.D – "The song is called L.S.D but not like acid, more like, Live.Sleep.Die."
Skegss tour Sydney next week. If you're around, check them out. It's a great time.
