I believe this is blog-fucking

What’s nice about the Vice blog is that it’s internationally penned, so you get gobs of Vice attitude from weirdos around the globe who sometimes know what they’re talking about. This is one of those times.

Enter The Mint Chicks, a four-piece from Auckland, New Zealand with a fire under their asses. There’s an underlying need to frantically lash out that’s contained in four bubblegum maniacs, penning pop songs. Lead by a singer who might have a Dennnis Lyxzén shrine in his cubby hole, the band appears to have quite a presence, onstage or in the audience. Their angst and methods take something away from Dinosaur Jr. or their former buddies Sebadoh, but with faster, nastier footwork and the NZ twist. Sometimes they take it a little far, nearly Linkin Park too far, but at least it rips like the choicest moments of DFA1979 (RIP). “She’s Back On Crack” and “Opium of People” stand out the most, in punking out with teeth showing — yikes.

Flying Nun has had these four fellers since 2004, and if I had to guess (and to test a description), I’d say this band is going to be Arctic Monkeys big in NZ. What I don’t have to guess is their interests, musical or otherwise, as they’re gut-spilled on the left side of the band’s page. Americans might have to do the download their new album, Crazy? Yes! Dumb?No! one way or another or choke up $28 clams. Is it worth it for the newest band?
Was it good for you, Viceybaby?
