The Thermals Are So Attention Starved That They Posted A Nude Selfie


What happens when you want news coverage and you’re not doing anything news worthy? A normal person would probably suggest doing something to stand out. A rock band could consider a new album cycle, or going on tour… or posting a nude photo for no reason whatsoever. The Thermals, who describe themselves as “post-punk-power-pop,” said they would post a nude selfie after they gained ten thousand followers on Twitter.

Then, despite not getting to ten thousand followers, their guitarist/vocalist Hutch Harris posted a nude selfie on Twitter. The tweet’s defense? To “prove it wasn’t just a gimmick to get more followers.” Don’t think about that for too long; we’re sure they’re aware that the argument they’re presenting doesn’t make sense. (I’m not doing it for attention! Now, here’s a photo for your attention.)

We’d comment on what the Thermals are doing – they’re currently on tour and had a new record out – but this is a pretty crappy low in bands needing a pat on the back. Before they did it, they even said “it’s less that I’m using a nude selfie to get more followers and more that I’m using more followers as excuse to show the world my nkd body [sic],” so maybe he’s not an attention whore. Maybe he’s just a person who needs outside validation and wants to have his body at the forefront of daily discussion. You know, like an attention whore.

We have included the tweet after the break with the picture. Be warned, it is not safe for work; there is penis to be seen.

I finished school with a music theory degree. Before I finished school, I was a janitor. You really should apologize to all the janitors you've ever had. You hurt them. Seriously. You did.

But, now that we've cleared that up and you called your high school janitor, know that I quit being a janitor to pursue writing about music. So here I am, and here you are, and hey how are you?
