[Video] LICE - The Human Parasite
Bristol's art punks LICE have just released the surreal video for their first single 'The Human Parasite', which is out now on 7" vinyl through Big Score Records.
Following up their arrival late last year with ‘Nutmilk: The Basement Demos’, a cassette featuring four demos released on Wintermute Tapes, the James Hankins-directed video sees the band inhabit those weird ‘real life’ women's magazines like Pick Me Up and Chat with their own twisted tales.
‘The Human Parasite’ picks up the conversations initiated by Nutmilk perfectly, drawing further influences from an abrasive clutch of early post-punk groups (Psychic TV, Ubu etc) and dealing with subjects like misanthropy, xenophobia and misogyny through first-person monologues.
