Hunx’s JunkOctober 28, 2009
Girls, the band, has quite a back story — no actual girls in the band, cult life, shitty parents, drugs, etc. The record is really good — early Elvis Costello CHANNELED. I had always wondered about the first line from the first song “Oh, I wish I had a boyfriend, I wish I had a loving man in my life. I wish I had a father, and maybe then I would have turned out right.” Seems a dramatic intro to a first record, but there’s real autobiography in there. Leave it to timing (see previous post about Hunx and His Punx) to have a new NSFW music video for said song premiere today. “Lust for Life” features Hunx and his erect junk being used as a microphone to lip synch by a twinky bed mate. Of course, Pitchfork features the video and talks about the boobs and the “schlong” but doesn’t mention that it’s Hunx’s. This is the link to the video, remember: NSFW!
