– A.V. Club

Check out Flesh World’s newest video ‘Just To Tear Me Down’ which just debuted over at Noisey, taken from their debut full-length that’s out now on Iron Lung Records.
Flesh World began with Scott Moore (Limp Wrist) and Jess Scott (Brilliant Colors), in a microscopic lofted-bedroom in San Francisco’s Panhandle district. Scott and Jess merged their respective musical histories of hardcore and pop, almost by accident.

Without any mention of their previous bands, they bonded over the films of Kenneth Anger, the guitar work of Lou Reed and William Reid, the writing of Jean Genet, and the shirtless figures of David Hockney paintings. The pair slowly built songs in between hanging out at drag bars and punk shows, watching SF decay into some sort of inverted Detroit, isolated wealth which sent a lot of young artists running in the last couple of years.

Flesh World is sort of what’s left of that, where the only places to have fun are still leather bars, house music clubs, basement punk shows. After the music and vision of Scott and Jess began to coagulate they brought in Diane Anastasio also of Brilliant Colors to complete their basic and primitive sound.

Watch the video for ‘The Wild Animals In My Life’, made by Veronica Falls’ Roxanne Clifford:
