    Re: Music Videos ...

    "LeSabre Radar" by Detroit's mighty Hentchmen.  It's about the git player Timmy trying to find replacement parts for his old Buick LeSabre.  Song's great, cool that they are taking the p1ss out of themselves....and I love love love the dancing girls.  It just their mates having a laugh....you know, real people!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QH-tanTo1CM

     

    As opposed to the absolutely gorgeous but completely phony Go Go Roadies:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSTgdQeH5SU

    The Rolling Stones' tv advert for Rice Krispies is pretty tasty:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZBmhEMFdl0

    .....of course the Stones miming on Ready Steady Go! is legendary, though not a video per se:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZqG6MMC0_A

    .....and "Rompan Todo" is amazing.  Obviously totally derivative, but still wonderful and really sweet....Uruguay 1966:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6VqPh9vP74

    ...and "Jesus Christ Twist" by Reverend Beatman.  I'm sure Harvey is familiar with Beatman's brilliant label Voodoo Rhythm Records.  I love the fact that the video artist, from a city in Spain called Logrono, didn't meet him until years after the video was made.  Rafa just emailed Beatman with some basic ideas about him goofing around in his house:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKQ1ufXFwZI

    I really like the Immediatos' videos.  I think the sister of Eva, the singer Jartur's wife, has made some/all of them. Not extraordinary IMO, but really sweet and fun and stylised:  This one reminds me of the Star Trek episode "The Way To Eden" for some reason:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eibsp46CCPM

    Love this too....it's just a song by the Masonics using images from Haxan (I'm sure Harvey knows all about it).  The bass jockey gave Mickey the video as a Christmas present years ago and said it would make a great video.  Mickey eventually wrote the perfect song for it, IMO:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jA9owX9QrkQ

    As an aside, my younger daughter loves the song and the video....I did not intend for her to see the video a couple of years ago at age 3, but she did accidently and not only wasn't frightened (it's quite disturbing, IMO) but loves it.  That makes me very happy....if you ask her what she is afraid of she will say "nothing". Exactly.

    Another non-"video", but it's a brilliant video of Lyres in 1984 at Spit.  Great performance, esp Paul Murphy...best Boston drummer ever IMO.  Not sure who's on git, is it Danny McCormack?  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0dIi--fxfk

    ....another live video, sorry.  IMO the best band in the world and the worst band in the world...the Go Nuts!  The world's greatest Snak Rock band.

    These are proper musicians...Deke Dickerson, Mel Bergman, etc.  I'm sure Harvey knows them all.  All mates living in Frisco 20 years ago, they met up for a couple of jars one night and decided to create the Worst Band Ever.....simplest chords, absurd lyrics (pro-junk food, anti-vitamins, vegetables and exercise), troops of villians and gorillas (or people in gorilla suits), snack weaponry to fire junk food at the crowd, absurd gimp/jester-like costumes, ad absurdum.  It's incredibly fun, wild and silly.  They don't play often because their day jobs are with their real bands, but they occasionally get together to have a holiday together and play at a festival.  Sheer brilliance.....absurd, stupid, silly, nonsense devised and perfectly executed.  Best band ever.  But they really are the worst  band ever too, intentionally.
