Introducing: PINTS

Let’s get this straight, PINTS don’t really care what you think. This London-based quintet want to drink beer and play punk rock – end of story. They don’t have much to say, they don’t have a plan, However  their latest video for ‘Holstenz’ deserves to be seen.

The track is taken from their new EP Drink, Smoke, Gamble, Repeat. which has been recorded but not yet released online “because we’re lazy” – although you can get debut album DRINKING. SMOKING. GAMBLING. for free download from their bandcamp page – imbedded below.

We don’t have no message” explains front man Bog “We ain’t the f*cking pope. As for passion and driving force? We’re just five mates who shouldn’t be allowed near instruments who enjoy playing punk music and getting plastered.”

‘Holstenz’ is the grimy, froth-topped embodiment of what PINTS are about – they are the sweat-soaked guys giving everything to a packed, tiny basement venue because they love doing it, not because they expect it to be a job, or anyone to even care. They smell of stale beer, all of their songs are about getting hammered, they will probably scream in your face and push you over; it’s nothing personal, you’re just in their way.

“That’s all punk rock should be, hanging with your mates and playing music because it’s fun” continues Bog “I can’t stand all this ego sh*t and the ‘got to start a band and be super serious with our promo shots’ attitude; deep vague interviews and sh*t.”

The whole ethos of PINTS is that they really don’t give a single f*ck, succinctly put by Bog as he fires his parting shot: “We will go out of our way to not act like a proper band, because we still don’t really think we are one.”
