Sydney band Papa Vs Pretty have made a bunch of videos of themselves recording at home called ‘From The Bunker’ sessions, an on-going 8 part series being premiered every few weeks on their own vimeo channel. The first video here is for the song Club 77, a song they wrote after being refused entry to the Sydney hipster joint for being underaged. I’ve heard a lot about this band but only got to see them recently at the Oxford Arts Factory. I knew from this video that the frontman Thomas can sing, but what this video did not show that he was also a shredder. They did a commendable cover of Purple Rain, a song that I think is risky to do if you can’t pull off the solo with the right style (it is Prince after all), but he did very well. I asked him after a show how he learned to play guitar like that, and his answer was: “Well first I started at Van Halen (!), and then I moved to Page, and then Hendrix, and now I’m at Prince”. There you go.
