Video Clip of the Week: “Graves” By Destroy This Place

Destroy This Place: Graves from Scott Allen on Vimeo.

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!

The Jam, “Strange Town”

The Video for The Jam’s 1979 hit, “Strange Town” (click link to watch) — a song that Paul Weller wrote about his first visits to London — is brought to you by Weller’s 54th Birthday, which is today, May 25th. What a great song! Happy Birthday, Paul!

Happy 53rd Birthday, Paul Weller!

Paul Weller of The Jam and The Style Council celebrates his 53rd Birthday today, having been born on May 25th in 1958.  Doesn’t he look amazing?

Happy Birthday, Paul Weller!

Paul Weller of The Jam and The Style Council was born on this day, May 25th, in 1958  – what a bad ass he is! Favorite Jam Song: “The Bitterest Pill.” Happy Birthday, Paul!
