Friday Afternoon Videos: Hooray For 80s Production Values

Hey all (not y’all)…”Just Like Honey” by the Jesus and Mary Chain popped into my head the other day, so I went in search of the video and watching it instantly reminded me of the Icicle Works video for “Whisper to a Scream”.  They bear a striking resemblance to each other and not just because of the pasty skinned musicians.  Icicle Works was 1983 and J&MC was 1985.  Apparently, music video technology did not advance much during those two years.  Just goes to show–you don’t need more than a backdrop, a wind machine, and a bag of leaves to make a video.  The J&MC video has embedding disabled, or I would have included that too, but you’re smart–go to you tube and search for it.
