The Answer court controversy


NORTHERN Ireland's hard rocking sons The Answer, have released a new single, and with it a furore has started about the explicit content of their new single, Spectacular.

The promotional video has already been banned by Youtube because of its explicit content. In scenes at a house party there is nudity, sexual activity, drinking and smoking; a combination sure to cause many a strait-laced politician to choke on their cereal.

However, while there may be criticism from the so-called moral guardians it should not detract from the fact that it is a great song, that looks back at all our younger years and aspirations we may still have.

And, given the content of Rammstein's promo video for Pussy, by comparison this isn't that bad: but in Northern Ireland terms - and Spectacular was filmed in and around Belfast - it will be regarded by certain church men and politicians to be beyond the pale.

What is certain is that it will help raise the profile of the new album - New Horizon, which is out on Napalm Records on 30th September (pre-order link here)

If you are over 18 and not easily offended then you can watch the controversial video here.
