social distortion: short film premiere

so cal rock and roll veterans social distortion recently released a music video for the song “machine gun blues” from their new album “hard times and nursery rhymes“. this isn’t just a music video, it is a short film based on a fictional bank robbery in la circa 1934. i think it’s great to see such a core band putting themselves out there by making more than just your ordinary watch-the-band-play music video. it’s a nice production that tells a story.   by jr
