Nick Waterhouse – Wreck the Rod 
Nick Waterhouse - Wreck the Rod

Release Date: Out Now

So you want to make a video with a retro chat show pastiche and you need a host – how many calls do you have to make before you get to Danny Trejo? I mean, I love Trejo but he’s a crazy machete wielding guy, not a turtle-neck wearing chat show host. Until now. The superb Nick Waterhouse has created one of my favourite videos of all time for ‘Wreck the Rod’ which has a wonderful soul infused Motown vibe with sharp vocals and a gorgeous baritone sax. The song opens with the lyric “Love’s not a gamble, love is a trap. Love is a lovely suicide pact” delivered like a Vegas back-bar crooner and the song hits its stride, interrupted by an increasingly jaded Nick Waterhouse being grilled by Trejo. The song is great on its own and the video would work as SNL sketch but together this is just sublime. Oh, and Waterhouse can rock the frilled shirt whilst doing high kicks with the best of them.
