Giallo en Espanol "Por Fin"

Posted by Mr. Chadwick, August 24, 2008 12:00pm | Post a Comment
Esto es nuestro nuevo vidéo, para la canción Por Fin, que viéne en la edición 1.2 de nuestra serie de 12” EPs titulado isolated incidents.
 
Enfocado en cinta de 16” por Jason Tosta y Steve Carter, y dirigido por Sukho Lee. Directamente inspirado por la cinema Italiana giallo de los 70s (Argento, Bava, etc.) y tomando mucho del lecho de muerte en el hospital de la película Autopsy. Para una versión más clara, visita nuestra website. Es un poco sangrienta, por eso sí no te gusta eso, omitélo.

(Somewhat bloody-- if that's not your thing, skip it.)

No wonder Metallica is so successful and so goddamn terrible now. What were you doing in high school?  Here's what Cliff Burton was doing with Faith No More's guitarist, Jim Martin:

 
Notice Martin's "Search and Destroy" riff in the second part:


Mmm.  I never heard anything like that at my high school talent shows. Closest anyone came was a spot-on Night Ranger cover band.

saint rose of lima     

Catholicism - Santa Rosa de Lima & Saint Philip Benitius' Feast Days.


Santa Rosa is the patron saint of the Peruvian Police Force and of people ridiculed for their piety. Phil B. was a Florentine who raised a couple of kids from the dead, exorcised a demon and smote some blasphemers. Don't ridicule!

Lithuania - Black Ribbon Day

A Day of Mourning in Lithuania, marking the Nazis' and Soviet's "political rearrangements" wherein they decided how to divide up Eastern Europe.

Rome - Vulcanalia


Vulcanalia is celebrated by sacrificing a red bull-calf and a red-boar to encourage Vulcan to keep the destructive power of fire in check. Maybe drink a red bull and pray that Griffith Park doesn't go up in flames this year.

The Night...Of The Thriller

Amoebapalooza 2008 Hollywood
Forget about yer Lollapalooza, Coachella, Bonaroo, yer South by Southwest, yer what have you... once and only once a year it's time for a truly hallucinogenic celebration of musical mayhem, and it's called AMOEBAPALOOZA! Twenty Amoeba Music employee bands in 4 hours -- ten-minute sets, a cavalcade of rock, rap, soul, tributes, impersonations and uncategorizable strangeness! You are there!

The cavernous space of the King King in fabulous downtown Hollywood looms before you... seething with an assortment of delinquents, sickos and lovable kiddies... the red stage lights beckon! The gigantic extended family of Amoeba has gathered here to see what kind of musical freakiness they can come up with, while bewildered onlookers watch in wonderment. Let the show begin!

The festivities got started with the '60s sunshine lady pop of My Mellotron Summer, and rolled right along with the suave sounds of the Amazing Reverb Engine, until they crashed head-on into a white-noise raveup from a knockout Velvet Underground cover band! Very inspired performances Amoebapalooza Hollywood 2008from a demented first-time Lou Reed and a frosty Nico, a tom-pounding Mo Tucker and three wailing Sterling Morrison guitars.

Brooke Back Fountain featured the eponymous leading lady busting out some Four Non Blonde covers in a voice bigger than Linda Perry's ego! Folks were pretty bowled over by that (having unsuccessfully blocked those Four NAmoebapalooza Hollywood 2008on Blondes songs out of their memories all these years)... those '90s were a golden age of top hats and dreadlocks, lest we forget!
