Skye Sweetnam Rides The Aggro Riddim

Remember last year’s Tim Armstrong solo record, A Poet’s Life?  Remember it was backed by The Aggrolites?  Remember that hot track, Into Action, featured Sky Sweetnam on background vocals?

Good, then you’re all caught up to check out her new video for Into Action, this time she steps up and takes the lead.

    Wait, so it’s a Tim Armstrong song that doesn’t feature Tim Armstrong?

    I like the original much more.

    Brettward-

    Tim’s in the song- the chorus seems to have the same mix as the original- but I wouldn’t say that this cut “features” him, either.

    I like the Sky Sweetnam version. Is it available on CD? If so, what’s the CD title? I’d like to get a copy.

    Unfortunately the second video no longer is viewable “due to copyright claim by WMG” so I miss my opportunity to see it.

    I don’t think you’ll find that Ms. Sweetnam’s other songs are as good. She’s doing a kind of Lily Allen kind of thing.

    Those Tim and Aggro vids should still be up on Hellcat’s website.

  5. Carl Says:

    JJ, I saw parts of other Sweetnam’s vids on YouTube and didn’t care for them. Too “tweeny pop” for my tastes.

    Carl-

    I agree- her style is wack. but her stuff on the Armstrong record is fresh, no?
