After Jimmy’s passport, wallet and phone were stolen when someone smashed their way into the tour van while they were on stage and spending a day smoking hash with a guy called Truck, Australia's Sticky Fingers are back from their European escapades.

They've got a brand new video for new vintage Sti-Fi single, Freddy Crabs. Cast away on a desert island, the band are left to fend for themselves against the crab-wielding figure in red, resulting in the battle to end all battles, with the enemy destroyed by a ripping guitar solo. A metaphor for modern life? Or too much time in Amsterdam? You be the judge.

"Sticky Fingers betray an obvious love for dub and a healthy dose of experimentation is just as prevalent. Particularly noteworthy is the lead guitar (one solo in Willow Tree suggests many hours trying to master Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb), which lifts the Fingers to something much more... This [is] promising stuff." – Sydney Morning Herald

“Sticky fingers... some how managed to magically combine whimsical English folk, West Coast psychedelia, and classic dub reggae and make it all work... surprisingly seductive." - Push Magazine
