ARCHIE POWELL & THE EXPORTS have made a career of grafting prismatic power pop and sardonic, dark looks at the world outside into guileless songs with hooks galore. Archie actually kind of makes it look simple; he is incapable of writing a hook-laden song. Today we have a new video that's perfect for those looking for you video-philes out there and for the enthusiasts of classic horror. Only So Much You Can Do was shot to look like one of those early Eighties VHS tapes you can find in the bargain bin of any rural gas station in America.
For our friends and readers in Chicago, you won't regret seeing these guys play Schubas tomorrow night (6/7) - this is one of the best live sets I've seen this year.. It's an 18+ up and just $10. This is music done right.
