In the song Black And Studs by double X-chromosomed punks Potty Mouth, the band poses the question, “What happened to you to make you wear black and studs?” This begs another question: What response is more quintessentially punk than, “Just ’cause?” It’s doubtful there is one.
With the late-2013 release of their debut album Hell Bent and some tour dates coming up, Potty Mouth just came out with a video for Black And Studs, and it’s subtle and cool in a DIY way. Shot in black and white with partial animation by Faye Orlove, this video does just enough to show the band’s potential and creativity without coming off like they’re trying too hard…because we all know how un-punk that is.
Hell Bent is out now via Old Flame. The video and their tour dates are posted below. Plus, you can download their track Rusted Shut here and read our Q&A with Potty Mouth here.
