While it cannot be denied that this week’s featured Video Clip “The Bees,” from Detroit-based quartet Destroy This Place, is an homage to the classic Beehive hairdo — which was popular throughout the 1960s — and a show of old school punk rock force, it also serves as a supportive anthem for the Save The Bees worldwide cause! And for this, I salute them! Save The Bees!
During this frenetically edited, high energy clip, you will flash back to famous Beehives worn by the likes of Elvira, Barbra Streisand, Audrey Hepburn, Priscilla Presley and even Diana Ross, among many other icons of pop culture and fashion! The video is shot in glorious Black & White for period accuracy!
“The Bees” is the scorching lead single from Destroy This Place’s new album, Animal Rites, which was released on October 23rd, 2015 via Forge Again Records. Warning: Not hangover-friendly. Enjoy!
OK, I am not sure if the protagonist (antagonist?) in this video is a mutant ‘Deer Man’ creature or just a guy wearing a Deer head mask. It does make difference in the way that you look at the clip, but ultimately it makes no difference in the way things work out. Anyway, I dig the absurd yet menacing indie flick Bag Head vibe of this high-concept-meets-performance video by Destroy This Place, a pretty rockin’ band from Detroit that channel all of the best sonic aspects of The Flamin’ Groovies, The Posies and The Jam for their fun, anthemic song called “Graves.” Check it out!
