New Wetdog Video – “Lower Leg”

By brandon / November 13, 2009

“Lower Leg” is the new single from stripped-down, angular UK post-punk trio Wetdog’s forthcoming second album Frauhaus!. (They recently toured with the Slits, which makes perfect sense.) For the “Lower Leg” video Billy, Rivka, and Sarah focus on the “wet” part of their moniker, along with various lower legs. Sonically, you’ll want to reference the Raincoats because people tend to do that with all-girl punk bands for better/worse. But the band’s label site mentions the three being into ’80 Welsh rock, Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci frontman Euros Childs, and that “The Wicker Man, Syd Barrett and Robert Crumb are just as likely to feature in any album-related discussions.” This video is sunnier and sillier than the latter three might suggest. Including the spastic skeleton and drowning cut-outs.
