Gob Patrol Releases “Sin City” Video

When you think of Las Vegas, you probably don’t think much about our punk scene. You probably don’t even know that we have a pretty rad one. Gob Patrol is setting out to change that.

The foursome have recently taken over the Vegas clubs that thrive on the style, and they’ve recently descended on the Los Angeles scene as well.

Gob Patrol just released their video for “Sin City”. Shot by videographer Jim Stone in one of Vegas’ version of CBGB, The Double Down, the video embodies this band and the scene.

About the Song.

The song is less than two minutes. It definitely captures that classic Ramones-esque style. The music itself is crunchy in the best way.

Bassist Gogo leads the way with this particular sound. It lines up perfectly with the quickly played chords by guitarist Jay. Add Code Blue’s (nice little T.S.O.L. reference) drums, which really add a Ramones feel and it makes the song perfect.

Vocalist Slam, who kind of resembles what the love child of Stiv Bators and Sid Vicious would look like, takes you through a night in the life of Gob Patrol. His vocals are the perfect amount of clean and growly. Jay’s harmonies add just enough of a catchiness to really make the hook grab you.

Ultimately, the song itself is one that will definitely get stuck in your head in the best way. “Sin City” is bound to be the new Vegas punk anthem, and if you disagree, then you probably aren’t paying attention anyway.

Stephanie " Stephy " Muzio (formerly Hayward) - Public Relations / Writer/ Photographer and Co-Founder of ZRockR Magazine Co-host of ZRockR Magazine LIVE! Stephy was raised on rock and roll. Originally from Illinois, Stephy is the daughter of an aspiring metal guitarist and a former rock n roll radio dj. Stephy’s first concert at the tender age of 8 was Rob Zombie at the original Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas, where she happily threw horns up and sang along to "Dragula" with the best of them ( she incidentally loves horror films too!) . She performed with the VGA choir at the 2007 Video Game Awards show at Mandalay Bay when it was hosted by Samuel L Jackson, sharing the stage with the likes of Foo Fighters as well as Kid Rock. An LVA alum, when she isn’t singing or playing herself (she plays a few different instruments), she is out in support of the local scene and at her friends gigs around the southwest and even when she is back home in Illinois! She has written as well as done some photography previously for a couple of smaller zines including Vegas SoundZ when it was in print. Stephy takes the adage of ” If it’s too loud that is just too damn bad! ” to heart- after all- she was raised around screaming guitars, thunderous drums, production studios and only Led Zeppelin and Nirvana played extremely loud would put her to sleep as a kid! Stephy is a large part of the backbone of ZRockR.
