Info below taken from the video series!
Greetings, Thee MVPs transmit to you the viewer a short film called ‘RECEIVER’, better known as army slang for a radio as well as the headset on an old telephone (remember them?!) The following is five songs beamed down to you via the competent and kinetic camerawork of Max Horn aka BARONXBONES
Better known for his work with Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes, Max has captured the band knocking five of their numbers out of the park. The mission statement was simple, make it look like it’s from the 70s, ‘make us look like those old Beat Club and Old Grey Whistle Test videos would you please’ may or may not have been the $1million question here.
Behind the desk was long time collaborator to the band Theo Verney, whose recent production on the Slimelord 45 along with storming records by TRAAMS and Rad Fru proved that he was once again the perfect match for cutting these Most Valuable of Players.
Recorded all live in a huge room at Brighton Electric, Thee MVPs fill the whole place with a pounding rhythm section, punch to the gut guitars and gusto-filled vocal attacks that the high ceilings could barely contain, everyone knows they’re better live so we figured we may as well give you what you really want not just another soundcloud link!
RECEIVER features three oldies and two brand newbies which are getting their first flex out in this session! Performed well, recorded better than that and looking even better than both those other things to boot, sit back and get a smattering/battering of the band before heading to a show, which they’ll be doing lots of always and forever.
Are you ready to receive the receiver?
