Video of the Moment #143: Bad Lieutenant

By on Thursday, 24th September 2009 at 10:00 am

Bad Lieutenant is, essentially, New Order (Bernard Sumner and Phil Cunningham) minus Peter Hook plus ex-Marion guitarist Jake Evans. Alex James of Blur also contributed to their debut album, but I’m not sure what role he played in its recording. Simply based on the strength of the first single, ‘Sink or Swim’, I think I can safely say this is going to be an excellent autumn release.

I’ve tried in vain to find the video for the song through the ‘normal’ video channels but wasn’t successful, so instead I’m linking to the video’s page on Yahoo! Music, as the band themselves linked to that page when the video premiered there last week. It’s a very scaled back and simplistic approach, but I think you’ll agree the music speaks for itself. Hate to say it b/c it sounds cliched, but the guitars sound very Beatles and Britpop – and those are compliments!

Bad Lieutenant’s debut album ‘Never Cry Another Tear’ will be released on 12 October on Triple Echo Records in the UK.
