"Heather (Whatever)" from The 3-Dimensional... (2003)
It gets a little more difficult (and pointless) to go on & on about some great album, when you can just stream the whole thing yourself - but that's my job. The Pillbugs made a handful of official videos, and that's one right there. Organ rattles, tambourine & handclaps, drum breaks, so forth and so on...
"Red Light Summer" from The 3-D I-P Dream (2003)
Mellow grooviness, nice little tune, animated in the style of Yellow Submarine (#6, 1969). Or as much as possible.
O yeah, this CD also came with an actual set of red/blue 3-D glasses! I think I've owned about twenty of those over my life, and this is probably the only ones left standing.
"Charlie Blue Car" from The 3-D I-P Dream (2003)
As always, I'm left with a couple of Pillbugs albums that I need to pick up - I think Buzz for Aldrin (2007) should be next. What else? Here's a label commercial with some Warholian SFX. And unofficial slideshow vid for another good track, "Liberty Town of Love."
This in-studio look shows the recording on a great one, "Girl on a Laser Beam." Free download?! Might be time for another MP3 comp.
