Human Fly

October 11, 2012

Now, this is some pretty neat work: films student (?) Nick Williams fan video for The Cramps‘ classic Human Fly. Pretty fitting considering we’re getting closer to Halloween plus this was the first song I heard from these guys. And I loved it. From the trebly intro guitar to the massive oomph when the whole band kicks in – with second guitarist Bryan Gregory serving up a wall of distortion that melts your speakers. I was hooked.

Like I stated in an earlier post I had this discussion about fan videos with Sal Canzonieri and we both agree on the sheer idiocy of major labels and artists going after their own fans today. These days, if a kid takes time off from the tons of distractions that are available to them 24/7 – and I’d be guessing for at least half a day if he/she wants to do a good job – in order to create something in order to promote you or your work you should be pretty darn thankful! Not drag ’em into court. But hey, the more you fellas shoot yourselves in the foot alienating the music- and moviefans the more they’ll start looking around for other, alternative outlets so by all means keep it up. Lord knows my meals don’t come for free.
