Pussy Stroke

People who describe themselves as ‘kooky’ or ‘zany’ are possibly the most annoying people you’re ever likely to meet. Fact. It usually means they’re incredibly dull but in order to make themselves more interesting they draw on their faces and wear clothes made of hemp. Devendra Banhart doesn’t describe himself as kooky, but will forever be labelled as such and this is a real shame. He’s clearly very talented and though he seems to have a problem when it comes to self-editing (his last album was about half an hour too long), he’s never afraid to expand his sound or collaborate.

We previously mentioned here that Devendra’s formed a new group, the lovingly titled Megapuss. Along with Devendra, Megapuss includes Greg Rogove of some band called Priestbird and a certain Fabrizio Moretti from The Strokes. ‘Adam & Steve’ is their first single and they’ve made a brilliant video to accompany it. Highlights are numerous, not least the opening salvo which is mainly the band trying to work what to do in the video (note the way Devendra looks like a mix between cleaning-lady-style Amy Winehouse and Spiderman) before settling on a mixture of ‘Faith’ by George Michael and ‘I’m Too Sexy’ by Right Said Fred (I never thought they’d get a mention on this blog!). Look out for an appearance by The Strokes’ Nick Valensi playing a guitar solo suspiciously similar to the sax riff from ‘Careless Whisper’, and a suggestively placed rubber chicken.

It seems Mr Banhart is a bit of a hit with the ladies, having recently dated Hollywood’s very own Natalie Portman. If you are a woman who enjoys hirsute men, or perhaps a man with a pube fetish, then why not click here to see the rather rude artwork for Megapuss’ debut album, Surfing.
