In an era of increasingly high-concept strategies to keep rock ‘n’ roll relevant, London quintet The Voyeurs boast a bracingly back-to-basics formula. Much of their material hews to the deconstructionist rumble of Television and Richard Hell & the Voidoids, but on their single “Train to Minsk,” the group harnesses the swaggering, stomping sound of early UK glam, which itself was an alternative to the early ’70s hippie hangover (and provided more of a foundation for the subsequent punk movement than it’s often credited for). The song’s video is a color-saturated collage of manipulated found footage created by founding Jesus and Mary Chain bassist Douglas Hart.
