Scraping Genius Off The Wheel

CELEBRATE THE LIBERATING POWER OF THE INTARWEBS WITH KEN MODE!

80

As you all know, the interwebs have empowered indie and unsigned bands with opportunities that once seemed unthinkable. For example, back in the early-to-mid-nineties, a band could let one of its buddies make a music video for one of its totally awesome songs – but then there would be essentially nowhere to watch it! YouTube leveled that playing field, which I am grateful for since I am now able to watch low-budget and no-budget videos from bands I like instead of just what MTV tells me I should like.

So savor this freedom from corporate rock and check out the video above from Canadian noise rock meanies KEN mode. The song is called “Extending Common Courtesy Throughout The Evening” and comes from last year’s self-released Mennonite album, which you can and should buy here. They’re working on a new album titled Venerable, and the select demos available on their MySpace page are just super duper.

He also writes for Brainwashed and usually manages the consistently off-topic No Yoko No. Say, why don’t you follow him on Twitter?]
