…eyes start bleeding, VIDEO/ SINGLE: THE ROOZALEPRES – Alien Television Show [Wötsu, animator]
The Roozalepres – debut album available for pre-order @ Go Down Records.
by Walter Price
There’s definitely old school connective tissue someplace btw New York Dolls’ “Personality Crisis” and T.S.O.L.’s “Change Today” in Italy’s The Roozalepres’s recent single, “Alien Television Show”. A bombastic punk rock track delivering a scathing look at the media and how it’s trying its damndest to zombieatize us all. A man-made creation creating an involuntary co-addiction that is becoming far to hard to shake…
The accompanying video, brilliantly animated by Wötsu, is a bastardized freakshow version of The Simpsons sitting on the couch, in front of their boob-tube, visually intoxicated, watching old sci-fi (i.e. Scanners), etc becoming more and more entrenched in its ritualistic propaganda.
The track comes from the band’s forthcoming, self-titled album, expected 13 March via Go Down Records.

“THE ROOZALEPRES is a punk‘n’roll quartet hailing from a rural region of Tuscany, in the middle of the cursed triangle between Florence, Siena, and Arezzo, composed mainly of hills and mountains surrounded for most of the year by a mystical fog and famous worldwide for excellent wine production which has definitely had an impact on the band’s sound.” – GDR
