Ladies and Gentlemen: It’s finally Summer! So, consider this clip starring legendary actress and sex-goddess Raquel Welch performing the classic medley from Hair, “Aquarius/Let The Sun Shine In” to be my official launch of what I hope will be a Summer of kick ass videos, as well as a salute to this being Pride Day here in NYC! Certainly there has never been a more appropriate time to open ourselves up to this song’s lyrical prophecy of “Harmony and understanding, Sympathy and trust abounding” etc etc. I’m sure you will agree.
This week, making their encore appearance in the much-coveted Video Clip of The Week slot is Birmingham, Alabama-based space-rock trio, Wray. Do they still sound very much like Wire Train? Yes, yes they do! Does it matter if you’ve never even heard of Wire Train before this minute? No, it does not matter! All that matters is that this free-from video for the awesome tune “Hypatia” has everything: Egyptology, Mythology, Pyramids, Lesbianism, Fire, a Cute Dog that looks like This Little Guy, Cool Visual Effects, Swirly, Atmospheric Guitars and a Badass Beat that just won’t quit. Absolutely perfect for the Sunday that tops off what I hope has been an amazing four-day weekend for you.
“Hypatia” is the title-track off the band’s upcoming album, due for release in early 2016 — not that far off! Enjoy!

In December 1983, Roy Lichtenstein created Greene Street Mural, an unprecedented, site-specific and temporary wall painting measuring 18′ × 96 1/2′ at Leo Castelli Gallery, located at 142 Greene Street. In accordance with Lichtenstein’s intention, the work was destroyed after the six-week show.
