The Coup and Japanther went into the studio one night after a show.
Here’s the video for the baby we made that night: “Long Island Iced Tea, Neat”
From The Coup’s latest album, “Sorry To Bother You”.
Directed/Animated by Kelly Gallagher.
It’s probably the only song on Sorry To Bother You that’s directly related to my experiences with Occupy Oakland. The lyrics are related to the optimism generated by organizing for the General Strike in Oakland and the nights of drinking that ensued.
Two things that should be known:
1. The title is an inside joke. I would never order a Long Island Iced Tea. I like good Bourbon.
2. We stole the drum pattern from Turf Talk’s ‘It’s A Slumper’.”
This is the premiere. Enjoy.
