A still from the video

Andy Frasco And The UN have released a video for their track Blame It On The Pussy.

It was filmed at this year’s South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, and originally appeared on the LA band’s latest album Happy Bastards, launched in February via Ruf Records. And mainman Frasco says they were determined to replicate their live sound on the record.

He tells The Blues Magazine: “We wanted to capture what our live show is – the chaos and the fun. But I wanted to write sick songs too. I wanted to mess around with all these different styles: reggae, punk rock, flamenco and boogie-woogie.

“I like to call it ‘party blues’ because we’re trying to celebrate life.”

They head out on the road in April which includes dates in Europe and the US.

The full interview with Andy Frasco And The UN is in the latest edition of The Blues Magazine, out now in print, online and via TeamRock+.
