Hasting’s folk punks Matilda’s Scoundrels have released a new video for the track ‘Bottles of Rum’ taken from their album ‘As The Tide Turns’. If you look close enough you might even see our writer Makky in the video too.
“We thought we would do a video for one our favourite song subjects, getting drunk. “Bottles of Rum” is a straight up, not so tall tail of lechery, smuggled contraband and inebriated murder. But overall, its about drinking rum with your mates and having a good time, because if you can’t get drunk and throw yourself around a sweaty venue, what can you do?
Shows in our hometown are pretty special so we decided to throw a party and film it. We got Mark Richards in who has done a few of our videos before and gave him the instruction to film the crowd. It’s was a great night and we had a lot of fun making this video, we hope you enjoy it!”
