RETRO: Cows “Hitting the Wall” video

Posted June 7th, 2007 by Eric Greenwood · No Comments

Seeing the Cows live was a glorious thing to behold. Lead singer Shannon Selberg would screech his way through unintelligible verses, shirtless, and with a giant cartoon penis drawn as though slung over his shoulder. The band’s darkly hilarious yet tuneless mayhem was far scarier than any punk rock, making it, of course, more punk than punk itself. This video for “Hitting the Wall” is from the band’s wildly insane noise-fest, Peacetika from 1991 on the much-missed Amphetamine Reptile records.
