[awesome video alert] Dead Cats Dead Rats "No Money No Honey"

It’s been an eventful week for DEAD CATS DEAD RATS – the most dangerous entertainers to emerge from North of Boston since John Cena.

Last Wednesday, they collected both the honor of the 2011 Best Music Poll’s Best Boston Punk Act and from us a semi-coherent explanation as to why the Swaggerin’ Growlers were flaunting the defaced local punk trophy all over the Brighton Music Hall and internet).

Within the past two-days-ish, DCDRs debuted what is certainly the greatest running-based music video since Wax’s “California.” (Editor's Note: Maybe). But unlike that buzz-cut of yore, this clip for the exquisitely explosive “No Money No Honey” did not require someone to be set on fire to compensate for a crappy song. Instead, it chronicles two gumshoes who play by their own rules on a quest to bring the putative “Chrysler Killer” to justice. Think Law & Order: SVU meets "Porky’s" meets Scooby-Doo, except with more running. It’s also got the first utterance of “Jeez Louise” I’ve heard since the last time I talked to my mom.

If loud, aggressive rock and roll is your thing, consider catching DCDRs Saturday at the Dodge Street Bar & Grill in Salem and/or July 1 at P.A.’s Lounge in Somerville. These shall be the most kickass DCDRs shows since, uh, the previous DCDRs shows. That is to say, they will kick lots of ass.
