Schematic “Stand” Video Premiere

Schematic - “Stand” (Color (n.) Inside the Lines, 2013)

Spartan Records premiered the new “Stand” video from former Mae frontman Dave Elkins’ project Schematic today. Check it out.

And check out that Oak Ridge Boys t-shirt Dave is wearing.

Tesla - “Edison’s Medicine” (Psychotic Supper, 1991)

Somewhat cheesy video for a great Tesla tune highlighting the attention and accolades paid to Thomas Edison (among others) over the the band’s namesake, inventor, mechanical engineer, and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla. To lend further credence to the band’s claim that Tesla’s genius was often overlooked and that his inventions were “appropriated” by other scientists and inventors, I never once learned about Tesla in school, only discovering him on my own after purchasing the band’s debut album.

Music can be educational, kids.

Donnie Iris - “Ah! Leah!” (Back on the Streets, 1980)

Great song. Creepy video.

Driver Eight - “Brown Paper Bag” (Watermelon, 1996)

Had enough of you

King’s X - Gretchen Goes to Nebraska, 1989

Oh, what the heck, here’s the whole album.
