Matt Heath and Chris Stapp’s grungey rockers Deja Voodoo began life as a fictional house band in brief segments of the pair's tasteless TV show Down the Back of the Y. The offer of a university Orientation tour encouraged them to take their mock rock creation more seriously and actually become a real band (albeit one that smashed burning acoustic guitars over Stapp’s head for an encore). Three albums followed, and they featured extensively on the soundtrack to Stapp and Heath’s film The Devil Dared Me To.
Life imitated art when Matt Heath and Chris Stapp transformed their Back of the Y house band into a real act. Here they make a determined bid to wrest the drinking anthem crown away from Th’Dudes’ Bliss with their own ode to the amber liquid. Heath and Stapp’s video takes the tribute to the six pack from pained conception through live performance to post gig acoustic sing-along by way of a hail of beer cans. It’s also a chance to revisit tried and true Back of the Y favourites: from flaming helmets and wrestling masks to dodgy stunts and pyrotechnics.
