Jerk in the Can "Bath Salts" (video)
Published Aug 18, 2014Vancouver's Marc Blaquiere used to play in the bands Kill City Kids and Go Ghetto Tiger, but these days he's got a new project called Jerk in the Can. They will release a 7-inch on Fat Kids First Records on September 1, and a video for the single "Bath Salts" can be seen now.
The song is a dynamic electro freak-out with dramatic balladry and manically fast, noisy synth explosions. At first, it seems like "Bath Salts" might simply be about the water-soluble hygiene product, since the stop-motion video shows a naked male toy (who appears to be made of clay or plastic) relaxing in the tub. Ultimately, however, the figure eats some bath salts and enters a tripped-out candy land where he chows down on some bystanders' faces. The clip was made by Jessica Blaquiere.
