Video Clip of The Week: “Strobe Light” By Night Club


Hello and welcome to Video Clip of The Week! This week’s featured video clip also qualifies 100% as a Pink Thing of the Day, because it is just so effing pink. Oh, the Pinkness. Their love of Pink aside, Night Club has a fascinating pedigree, being comprised of Keyboardist Mark Brooks (a co-director of Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse as well as videos by Slayer and Danzig, among others) and singer Emily Kavanaugh, whose dad is the keyboard player in the legendary Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes.

“Strobe Light” gets everything right for what it aims to accomplish, competing fiercely with the very best of what we used to call “Rock of The Eighties” nearly 30 years ago, but is today considered the greatest hits of Depeche Mode and New Order. Anchored by insistent keyboard hooks and a beat that cannot be denied, “Strobe Light” is the “Satisfaction” of modern club music.  Kavanaugh’s vocals also remind me of early Madonna (Think: “Borderline”). Win-win!

“Strobe Light” is the second single from Night Club’s sophomore release, Love Casualty — which is also a very ’80s title! Recommended highly for fans of Dance Music That Does Not Suck, you can keep up with their latest shows and events by ‘Liking” their FaceBook Page. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday, Jon Schnepp!

Geoffrey,  Jon and Me

Today, May 16th, is the birthday of one of the most entertaining people I’ve ever met, Jon Schnepp, who directs Metalocalypse, and works on a bunch of other awesome shows for the Adult Swim Network. Back in April, at least I think that’s when it was, I was lucky enough to hang out with Jon while we waited in line to get into Tara McPherson’s Cotton Candy Machine store for the Tiny Trifecta art sale. Jon is completely hilarious and had Geoffrey and I almost peeing our pants for the three hours it took us to get into the store. Jon, I hope you have a wonderful birthday and thank you for the laughs and the cool TV programs!  If you’d like to learn more about Jon, and perhaps also wet your pants from laughter, you can read my February 2010 interview with him at This Link.

Dr. Rockso On the Dollar Bill!

Someone with a sense of humor, a slight artistic bent and a love of Metalocalypse drew the face of Dr. Rockso, the Rock & Roll Clown (he does Cocaine) on a dollar bill. So, it gets to be on my blog. Because it is awesome.

My pal Swami recently turned me on to the virtual Death Metal band Dethklok, and I have been enjoying their cartoon adventures on the Adult Swim Channel’s very clever show, Metalocalypse for the past couple of days now. What I want to know is this: does anyone else out there notice a resemblance between Dethklok vocalist Nathan Explosion and Type O Negative’s Pete Steele? Anybody?

Because the similarities are obvious to me.
