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.
