Video of the Moment #1938: The Crookes

One constant in a blogger’s world when it comes to live shows is the pushy stage mum (or dad). You can always pick them out in the crowd for their overzealousness, or sometimes you don’t need to pick them out at all, as they head straight for you once they know you run a famous music Web site…

In The Crookes‘ new promo for their latest revealed track, new single ‘I Wanna Waste My Time on You’, the band from Sheffield take the said pushy stage dad / manager presence in their life and observe his behaviour from home life to the stage. Even funnier, their stage dad reminds me of the leopard print-wearing dad-dancer from Blossoms‘ Green Door Store performance Saturday night at the Great Escape 2015, hilarious. Watch the promo below.

‘Lucky Ones’, the Crookes’ fourth album and their first on their own Sheffield-based Anywhere Records label, will be out on the 29th of January in the UK and also on the same day on Austin’s Modern Outsider in North America. We’ve written a fair bit on the Crookes on TGTF (have a look), and Carrie’s just done an interview with guitarist / lyricist Daniel Hopewell earlier this month.
