Alien Meets Bozo The Clown
Why are the band members welding with ski goggles? They’re confused. Kinda makes them look like idiots- but hey, if that’s the look they’re going for… This is obviously an ultra-modern hairstyling academy in New Jersey. The name of the band, Flock Of Seagulls, is reminiscent of the hairdo’s of the band, which are not unlike a mass of birds all stuck (perhaps welded?) together.
Aside from the Star Trekism and weirdness, the song is pretty good. Who knows what this photograph fetish is really all about, but I think it’s called the snare drum, which is really great in this track- less like a drum and more like banging a pipe. The drummer, shown about 3/4 of the way, has the hardest job, playing the steady two-note beat as if he were a human metronome. New-wave 80s, it’s a kinda futuristic video and song, and it’s pretty catchy near the end with the droning guitar.
