Next up is video #2, this one coming from the midwest supergroup GAYNGS. On the new GAYNGS record, Relayted, the band covers Godley & Creme’s “Cry.” The video also draws its inspiration from the source – animating the faces of its contributors to morph into one other. Many references are made to the original groundbreaking video, including an appearance by Kevin Godley himself.
For all you lucky Bastards in the midwest, do not forget about The Last Prom On Earth, a musical celebration happening at First Avenue in Minneapolis on Friday, May 14th. Limo and tux rentals are running out in the Twin Cities. There will be two record release performances by the entire band: one at 5pm that is all ages and a boozier, 21+ version at 10pm. Passes are available at ticketmaster here and here.
A little bird told me that the prom will be decorated by a team of 14 volunteers and will include two thousand GAYNGS ballons, much gold decor, and free condoms and lube. It sounds like everyone will have the best prom ever. (Via Jagjaguwar)
