Video Premiere – The Professionals ‘Spike Me Baby’ – For those special family moments!

We’ve all been there. Quietly minding our own business and then circumstances result in us getting ever so slight off our tits thanks to ‘someone’ in the family leaving the special chocolate out without warning us about the contents. It’s a common occurrence isn’t it??   

Spike Me Baby

…..tells the tale of Paul Cook’s ‘comeuppance after helping himself unknowingly to his daughters (herbally enhanced) chocolates.

His daughter, the amazing Hollie Cook features on the track with her distinctive backing vocals. Cookie went from peckish, to feeling the end was near, to sitting back and enjoying the ride – he really got spiked by his baby.

The band gained access to the empty Olympia development site, a unique location and example of Victorian iron construction, over the next years to be transformed into a Westfields style mall.

While empty the band had some fun. Check out the brand new video to accompany ‘Spike Me Baby’

“Another step forward from “What in the World” but with keeping one foot planted in our old influences – bit of a stretch? Sometimes – but hopefully keeping true.” – The Professionals.

SNAFU bristles with conviction and finds The Professionals on electrifying form, delivering some of the most ballsy, honest and downright brilliant songs of their career.
