That was almost my exact reaction to it.

Wow. I thought that clip was lost in the MTV vaults for all time.

These guys look like they were in a Foreigner cover band before they bought "new wave" shirts.

Then there's that insipid song...

As soon as I read the words on the front page, my first reaction was "Arf arf arf arf! Nobody knows who you are!" Man, that takes me back to a time best left forgotten.

when everything fell into place.

Mr. Lucinda has been obsessed with this song for years. He found the video on YouTube a few weeks ago and became a happy man. I just nodded and smiled.

It's like Sparks and Devo had a baby.

A dead baby.

Are these the same guys that did Fish Heads?

Bizarrely entertaining.

"Are these the same guys that did Fish Heads?"

Nope. 'Fish Heads' ("eat them up, yum!") was from Barnes and Barnes. B&B featured Bill Mumy, who played Will Robinson on TV's Lost in Space.

Time for me to save this sorry excuse of a YouTubefilter thread with some true MTV classics:

Pancreas Joe & the Eskimos: "$30 Guitar"

Landscape: "My Name is Norman Bates"

Temple Tudor: "Wunderbar"

Utopia: "Feet Don't Fail Me Now"

Weird Al: "Dare to be Stupid"

Lene Lovich: "It's You"

Blotto: "you Can't Fire Me, I Quit"

Blotto: "Metal Head"

and yes, Barnes & Barnes: "Fish Heads"

Part of that song has been stuck in my head for 25 years. Now it's free. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

One Step Beyond - Madness

their all coming back to me...

How about Madness again, but Wings of a Dove?

This is clearly in reference to Reagan and his 'states rights' comment given at county fair in Philli. I only wish I'd seen this new information in time to do something.

Does anyone remember a group called 'blood sweat and gears(?)'. I remember really liking a song of theirs when I was young and impressionable listening to Doctor Demento in the 80's. That's when I first heard Barnes and Barnes. I'm not really sure I'm ready for this...

All those clips are too slowly paced for my modern youtube-damaged attention span.

I'd almost forgotten that song! DAMN YOU!

And now I'll be hearing it in my sleep! Ruf, ruf, ruf....

This song is still in my head.

Every time I have some awful earworm (like this morning's "Tiny Bubbles"), I think to myself, well, it's better than Dog Pol--SHIT.
