The Death Set, “Around the World” (Counter Records, 2008)

Muppets, tiger masks, laser guns, atomic-bomb sized explosions…welcome to the spaz-matic world of Wham City affiliates the Death Set. In the Demonbabies-directed clip for candy-core single “Around the World,” the band look like lost members of the Beastie Boys and rage like the Bad Brains on happy pills, giving the new face of punk a badly needed lesson in positivity.

The Death Set play Rock City, Saturday, June 14 at 12:30 am in the Magic Stick.
