I want to thank everyone who tuned in to Memory Bank tonight. I had so much fun doing it and can’t wait to be back on Tuesday from 6-8 on WBGU FM, WBGUFM!
I mentioned on the show tonight the music video for the song “California” by Wax. Looking at it now, it seems so tame, but in 1995 when it was released, MTV banned it. Their reason? Too violent. The video was directed by Spike Jonze, who also directed “Sabotage” by The Beastie Boys…get hip to Spike Jonze’s work, it’s pretty cool. It was shot in one take and took roughly 30-60 seconds to film, yet was slowed down to last the duration of the song. The guy in the video is actually on fire, but he was a stuntman. Check it out!
I also played a song by Polaris, the band that is responsible for the music for every 90s kid’s favorite show about brothers, The Adventures of Pete and Pete.
The theme to the show, performed by Polaris, is below.
