Last Chance Riders – ‘Downright Disgusted’

‘Downright Disgusted’ is from Last Chance Riders’ first studio album, ‘Jet Lag Super Drag’. Recorded at Sonica Studios with award-winning producer John Briglevich, it’s a track about being brutally honest with oneself, and getting to that point where you need to take action.

Last Chance Riders are five passionate rockers who are inspired by the greats of rock and roll, and bring that enthusiasm to the stage, with their honest and energetic music. Speaking of ‘Downright Disgusted’, chief songwriter DeWitt Thompson says,

“Downright Disgusted is a vignette where misspent youth meets the ups and downs of addiction and sobriety with a sprinkle of rock n roll thrown in. Like falling asleep on ecstasy in Amsterdam then waking up in pleather pants and realizing your backpack is on Air France but you still have your guitar!”

The song sees lead singer Jessie Albright let rip with her naturally agressive tones shining through, as she displays with a passion what it means to be “downright disgusted”.

The clip shows to perfection someone who is unhappy with their past, and wants to make a positive change. We see scenes of a drug sale gone wrong, as well as constant paranoia, as the main character sees a “hitman” throughout the clip, in settings where it’s just not possible for him to be. We realise that his mind is getting the better of him, and the demons taking over. The video shows someone running from their past, in the hope of getting better and changing their way of life. Even without the drug aspect, it’s a theme that most of us can relate to.
