Dubbed 'homo-core', Gay For Johnny Depp are not for the faint-hearted...
Gay For Johnny Depp. The name itself is more than a little unconventional; certainly, it's a conversation-starter, but not content to stop there, this band have seemingly gone out of their way to delight or disgust (depending on your point of view) with the shockingly-titled mini-album, 'Blood: The Natural Lubricant (Apocalyptic Adventures Beyond Sodom and Gormorrah)', not to mention songs like 'Sex In Your Mouth', which leave little to the imagination.
The experimental hardcore rock of new single, 'Shh, Put The Shiv To My Throat' is as outrageous as you might expect from the controversial Brooklyn four-piece; a two-minute orgasmic explosion that swaggers in with its gyrating intro before erupting into raw, impassioned screams. Guitars continue to wind seductively and drums rattle and crash, until suddenly the whole song seems to be sucked down into a spiralling vortex of confusion and indistinguishable lyrics that sounds almost like some one has hit the rewind button, before finally clawing its way back out and ending with one last lustful chorus.
Dubbed 'homo-core', their quirky lyrics and, shall we say, rather unconventional subject-matter aren't for the faint-hearted but fans of experimental hardcore and outrageous rock will surely find some entertainment here.
