Published Feb 07, 2013Grungey Vancouver crew Slow Learners are just about to drop their previously announced "Habit" 7-inch through singer/guitarist John Johnston's Perfect Master Records. To celebrate the occasion, the band have whipped up a video for the record's B-side "Party Police."
It's a fairly straight-forward clip that finds the three-piece crashed out in a filthy, magazine-and-garbage-strewn pad. The video slowly pans across the mess as the jumpy punk number, smarmily sung by bassist Sean Hawryluk, apparently plays on the turntable.
If you've got a keen eye, you may notice that the shoot was set up to resemble the cover of 'early '80s hard rock compilation A Quiet Night In, which featured tracks form Motörhead, Uriah Heep, Girlschool and more.
Slow Learners play a record release party at Vancouver's Anti-Social skateboard shop on February 15 with Needles//Pins and Open Relationship. The three acts also team up the next night at Victoria's Talk's Cheap venue.
