Rolling Stone has Social Distortion’s newest video, “Gimme the Sweet and Lowdown.” Watch it here.
Working with Olya & Vira Ishchuk (known as “The Mad Twins”) was a great experience,” says Mike Ness. “Olya & Vira created this animated piece on their own time as a gift to us, and they nailed it – we didn’t change a thing. Being able to capture the true essence of the song without our input shows The Mad Twins’ artistry, and how talented they truly are. When I was writing “Gimme the Sweet and Lowdown,” the idea behind it was a lifestyle gone wrong due to making really bad life decisions. I never intended for it to be autobiographical, but now with this visual, I realize that it actually is more about me than it seemed when I wrote it.
