Behind the Front: Joints and Jam
It will be a while before I get to the shitty stuff, but just you wait and see what I'm going to do with all that junk inside their trunk when I do.

Anyways, their next single from Behind the Front, Joints and Jam. It's all about the rhythm. Literally. It's repetitive, but catchy, like their recent output, except actually good. At face value, it may sound inane, but when you actually pay attention to the lyrics, there's an anti-discrimination undercurrent concerning how everyone can be united in jamming to the music. It's not overly Anvilicious, but their passion is evident. This was one of the major themes of their music, but alas we all know their Motive Decay is a foregone conclusion.

The music video is kind of weird, though. The band gets their faces stuck to the screen at various points while Kim Hall simply stands in the centre grooving during her turn. At some point, the song suddenly changes to an instrumental and the Peas change their tune to a different version of Falling Up. I can't comprehend all this, but I suspect I don't have to.
