It’s time for (last Friday’s) Friday Two-fer!
With a budget slightly greater than Antikas and I could ever scrape together, the Phenomenauts put together some fun and funky sci-fi videos for their awesome rockabilly sounds.
Let’s watch the video for Tiny Robots
Everything from the space Toyota Corolla and the photonegative alien girl, to the Batman ’66 building climb and the worst-ever-ROM-cosplay-robot bespeak the love these punk rockers have for the B-movie sci-fi genre. The Phenomenauts have been together since 2000, and have a trio of albums out to date. Bands of this type make their living off live performances, not studio albums, but you might have to make your way down to California to catch them.
Now, I can’t find a video for their song Space Mutants 4, which was my first choice for a second song (… or second choice for a first song? I don’t know; I’m not good at the math), so here is the non-video (thanks, YouTube!) for a song whose sentiment we can all proudly agree on.
Hear that, Venus? Yeah, that’s right. Suck it! Earth is the best! What’s that, Venus? You and Uranus are the only planets in our solar system to revolve east to west? Well we invented Rockstar energy drinks! Shove that in your sulfuric acid clouds.
