Viagra Boys

Common Sense

    Some say Viagra Boys is something akin to a looking glass pointed at the absurdity of existence and misconceptions of modern society - a depraved and ferociously bass-driven judgement on western civilization, a distorted 24/7 party on the acid highway whilst the world slowly rots away. Others claim they´re more like a gross joke on masculinity, gleefully serving up escapist narratives lacking any form of self-preservation; like an obfuscated back alley door into the backwaters of the human psyche. Metaphors aside, Viagra Boys is an unapologetically raw sextet comprised of classically trained jazz musicians, karaoke loving tattoo artists and seasoned hardcore scene veterans, churning out pulsating sounds from the sub levels of contemporary rock music - a bellowing, unstoppable force majeure of latter-day punk, PTSD disco and synthetically enhanced kraut.

    In this time of strife, insanity and confusion, only one band is depraved enough to offer themselves up as herald. Like sin-eaters if sins had to be ingested from a very small spoon, Viagra Boys have consumed the utterly incomprehensible chaos of our era and distilled it into 12 immaculate tracks of post-truth-cow-funk-kraut-wave-enlightenment.

    Since their founding in 2015, Swedish post-punk band Viagra Boys have made a name for themselves burning up stages around the world. There's a little Iggy Pop spit and seethe, a David Yow drunken stumble, and a bite of Nick Cave's haunted bark. Add a dash of motorik groove, a pinch of post-punk grime, and a dose of no wave howl. For every gruff and gritty croak in the outfit's catalog, they come back with a pair of bongos, squared-off synths, and a squonky saxophone, with songs that deftly lay waste to society's normalization of toxic masculinity, racism, misogyny, classism, and self-obsession.

    Viagra Boys' Sebastian Murphy dreams about everyone hating his guts. A lot. "I kept having this recurring nightmare where my mom was crying and my friends were all pissed off at me," he recalls, almost reverently.

    The band's new album, Welfare Jazz, doesn't bargain with the anxiety in that defeated feeling, but rather a boiling certainty that nothing and no one is absolute. There's plenty of blame to go around, and things are just a lot more interesting when you admit that you're not always going to be nice, you're not always going to pick the right words in a fist-fight. So why not keep moving forward, swaying and strutting into the night.

    Street Worms

      Grimey, acid highway full throttle; on V****a Boys’ twisted dark punk album Street Worms, vocalist Sebastian Murphy lets you ride shotgun on a trip that takes you blazing to the top of a mountain before speeding right back down to the basement.

      With a bass line that ferociously drives the car and drums that make sure you stay on the road - this is one of those trips where you sporadically wake up and find yourself in strange situations, wondering how the fuck you got there. From the Shrimp shack to the dog show, one minute you’re playing ‘rugby ball’, the next moment you’re being eaten by worms, and between the fading lights and the strange look on your friend’s face, Murphy grabs your ears and asks you what you really want from this life.

      This is an album about illusions of realness, the absurdum of existence and the joke of humanity. Street Worms is V****a Boys debut studio album, a debut that instantly let them occupy their absolute own space in music history. “It was all a dream, but it was so nice. I had a nice house and such a lovely wife. We had a little dog, such a little dog, it reminded me of a large dog. Just a miniature size.”.

      Produced by Daniel Fagerstrom (Skull Defekts, Chronic Heist) and Pelle Gunnerfeldt (Fireside, The Hives) for YEAR0001, now on CD for the first time in 2019, and limited vinyl, with 5 additional bonus tracks. For fans of Idles, Shame, Fucked Up, Devo and the Birthday Party.
