In the mean time, considering the new single is mediocre at best, (yet for some reason I still have my fingers crossed for the rest of the new album even though my hand is tired from teetering it every time I try to describe how I feel about "Meds") here's an old, incorrectly / alternately (?) titled video of the self-titled era b-side "Drowning by Numbers" featuring Brian & Stefan with original drummer and didgeridooist, Robert Schulzberg. The real treat in this video is the guy in the windbreaker and baseball hat that comes into focus around :07 - :10. He is, what I believe to be, the incarnation of the spirit of rock n' roll.
And just for fun: Here are the guys as the Flaming Creatures covering Mr. Rex's "20th Century Boy" in
Velvet Goldmine. And yes, the still image of the video is a glammed out John Connor that looks
hauntingly similar to The Joker. Spooky? Nay. More Romero than Ledger! Smashing!
