GREATEST HITS OF 2012 no.3: Publicly calling out TRC over their video to ‘Temptation’

December 19th, 2012

TRC Temptation Loop Thrash Hits

There has only been one instance in the near-five year history of Thrash Hits that we’ve hesitated before clicking the ‘Publish’ button out of fear for our physical safety. And that was earlier this year, when Hugh Platt wrote a ‘Dear John…’ letter to TRC, explaining why he wouldn’t be writing about them anymore after witnessing their then-latest promo video for ‘Temptation’. Mainly because he was scared one of TRC would uppercut his head clean off his shoulders backstage at Download Festival or something like that.

Dear TRC, I think we need to have a little talk about our “relationship” in light of your video to ‘Temptation’

February 15th, 2012

In the spirit of the “Dear John letter” concept, one of our writers just had to get something off his chest (following several minutes of dumbfoundedness) after watching the mesmeric new video from TRC. Warning: This post contains a TRC video.

Dear TRC,

I’m terribly sorry that I’ve had to do this through a letter. I couldn’t bear to make a scene in public. Also, I’m a physical coward and I think you might actually punch me in my wimpy, middle-class liberal face. I know we could never describe our “relationship” as being that a close one, but this afternoon I saw your promo video for ‘Temptation’, I thought it best we make a clean break of it before it develops any further.

It’s difficult making a follow-up when your first album is universally lauded but people don’t call The Ghost Of A Thousand, “Brighton’s finest,” for no reason. They went into the writing and recording of New Hopes, New Demonstrations knowing exactly what they wanted and haven’t they done well.
