Slow-motion moshing in basketball courts = the next big thing??

I like to think of SYWH as more than just a moderately popular blog for nerdy, introverted music nerds who wish they were popular, normal people: to me it’s a COMMUNITY. As such, I love it when people ask me questions such as the one above that really make me think. I saved this one in my inbox for a few days because fuck, I had no idea what was going to be The Next Big Thing in videos… until now:

Look out for moshing in the basketball court of Soviet-era public housing to dominate the scene in 2K12, I think this video is going to open a lot of eyes and keep location scouts busy well into 2K13. Additional notes:

  • Dat drummers hat– why is it always the drummer who embarrasses the band with novelty headwear???
  • 1:10 not sure if ironic circle pit, or just clueless Russians who learned how to mosh from Youtube tutorials
  • Whose idea were the leaves on the drums? “Yuri, you must hide your drums under these leaves, or the secret police will confiscate them and trade them for potatoes”
  • More bands need to do stuff like the part at 2:20 where they all jump 4 inches off the ground in slow-motion
  • The clean vocals at 2:30 or so- I love it when Euros who don’t actually speak English can’t understand their own lyrics, so they just memorize the sounds
  • Kinda stoked on how lulzy all their outfits are, because it reminds me of back in the day when people in hardcore bands looked like outcasts and broke-ass losers who got their clothes from a cardboard box behind Safeway with “FREE” written on it in Sharpie (srs)

Which will be bigger in 2K12, basketball mosh videos or fortress wall videos?? Have you ever tried a dance move you saw in a mosh tutorial video??? Will the next Attack Attack video prominently feature autumn leaves???

Thanks to reader Nick for awaring us to this!

  3. Martin Regnen says:

    Between this and Circle Of Death, it seems Euros are pulling ahead of America and Britain.

    To continue the whole euro band video’s
    /watch?feature=player_embedded&v=f__1x6mHCp0
    Here’s one that i found of the french band “Alea Jacta Est’. Beach Themed video’s could be a big contender too.

  7. XheartburnX says:

    Man, I’m moving to the country and I was going to rent out field space to local bands. I guess i’m going to have build a basketball court too.

    1. So much short shorts 2. can’t say i disliked it 3. actually digged (dug?) about the first half 4. LULZ Yankees beanie or whatever you call it around 3:25 5. such a small drum set. but, it gets the job done and is quite portable

  11. Anonymous says:

    Is this some sort of lulzy euro gymnastics video? that one kid in he black skinny jeans and black hoodie does the same failed cartwheel attempt like 6 times in the video.

  12. Jonda says:

    in the parlance of hip-hop blog commenters, you just ethered us, sarge!

    fave dude = 44 seconds in, confused and he just sorta gives up.

    • alanso says:

      Yes! He’s doing a dad at a hip hop conert move after that pretty bitchin’ cartwheel thing that everyone loved so much. I also love that there’s a basketball just left there.
      ‘No man, leave it there. Makes it real authentic’

      We have tonnes of ‘ghost’ i.e. half finished/empty housing estates in Ireland beside lots of green fields, I sense an opportunity

  16. vulgar display of your mum says:

    everything you pointed out was so spot on. Your pro at this man.

  17. The great Charles says:

    Kinda reminds me of a third rate non-gothy atreyu video.

  18. SkeeterValentine says:

    Vladamir, Lev, and Fedors amps got confiscated and sold for a sacks of potatoes and Vodka.

  19. VyceVictus says:

    Yeah this is pretty tight, but fuck that FORTRESS WALLS 2k12 DOMINATION.
    I encourage all you upstart bands to take your gear and cameras and start jamming in front of your local National Guard armory like doing a guerilla conert. The footage of the ensuing tussle as MPs beat you to a pulp #Occupy style will add to the realness and truth of your music video performance.

    Russian Straight Edge: You drink everything except vodka.

  21. John says:

    Wow. that ending breakdown doesn’t hit at all. Goes into the chugging but fucking shitty ass KSE clean vocals. damn.

  22. Deeestroy says:

    I wish there would’ve been a slo-mo shot of the snare where leaves flew in the air kinda like 80s glam videos where they did that with glitter.

  23. J.A.Shearman says:

    For my bands video we’re not playing in a grassy field…
    We’re playing on a tram in a grassy field!

    Also our drummer wears a spongebob squarepants hat so we’ve got the embarrassing headwear for the drummer down already.
    When we’ve done it I’ll send you guys a link, should be pretty lulzy. Just throwing a house show on this old tram on a mates property and filming it all to go with this demo/ep thing we’re working on in the next month or two.

    MOSH MOSH SLAM DUNK TWIRL B-BALL

    AND BARF

  25. DiscreetSqueazer says:

    It’s really interesting how sissy a bunch of skinny sceneters/euros doing mosh moves are, but make it a 200+ lb. dude in a Madball jersey and it is infinitely more hard.
