Falling somewhere in between the hazy psyche vibe of The Brian Jonestown Massacre and the experimentation of Throbbing Gristle, Ruiz!’s « Stupid Old Git » is as weird as it is catchy. The one-man project from Sheffield uses glitchy organ patches and fuzzed-out guitar lines giving « Stupid Old Git » a dusty, vintage quality as Ruiz’s DIY electro-new wave vocals chew the scenery. Coming with « Stupid Old Git » is a montaged music video of archival film footage of Europe and England in the ’70s. The message of the song is clear; don’t be stuck in your old ways.
« Stupid Old Git is about a stupid old git I once knew. There’s therapy in so many places, you just need to know where to look, » Ruiz! says.
