Colour Me Impressed

12 Minutes – June 22nd 2009


In what we are hoping to become a regular feature, here is our first installment of 12 minutes. The concept – find ¬†4 music videos (4 videos x 3minutes [approx.] = 12 minutes) and aggregate them here for you. These videos may be old, they may be new, they maybe live, but they probably won’t be the video for “Thriller.”

Pixies – Plant of Sound (Live on 120 Minutes)

I guess since we sort of owe MTV for the name, we should pay them some sort of homage. Anyhow, back in the day, if you were were willing to stay up late and sacrafice your weekend, there was plenty of good music to be found on MTV : 120 Minutes, Alternative Nation, Headbangers Ball, etc. This aired in 1991 — MTV’s video highlights for that year included Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” but also Gerardo’s “Rico Suave” and Color Me Badd’s “I Wanna Sex You Up.” So with the good comes the bad(d). A few years down the road a Bouncing Souls album would be final piece in the puzzle that led to me eschewing MTV altogether. For every Toni Braxton video I didn’t have to hear 100x, there was also some cool Sonic Youth video that I missed altogether, and that’s kind of a bummer.

MENEGUAR – Some Other Life
Woods are getting a lot of love right now for their current record Songs of Shame, but lets not forget about the members’ other efforts in Meneguar. Hooray lo-fi pop!

Wu-Tang Clan – Gravel Pit

It’s offically summer now (or at least I think it is), anyhow that said there is the need for some good windows down jams, that kick off epic road trips or random ice crem runs. For that, we turn to Bobby Boulders, Joe Quarry, Old Dirty Blocks and crew, who have been turning it out since 2,000,000 B.C.

Felt – Early Mornin’ Tony

Felt is ¬†Atmosphere (Slug and Ant) + MURS, talking about stuff they are into (comic books, skateboards) and where things go amiss for them (everytime they’re around women). Ant (aka Anthony aka the dude who produces the beats for all of the Atmostphere records) looks like he should be registered under Megan’s Law.
