Bathtime in Clerkenwell

Take a Ride – Don Felder

The vignette B-17 from the 1981 Heavy Metal movie. My favorite movie, and magazine (where the vignettes were adapted from). I posted a video with this song a few months back (So Beautiful and So Deadly) but this is the scene the song actually comes from. Wherever and whatever, posting a scene from HM is never out of place for a FNMV.

The Dark Side

Another You

Smooth, sensuous, and slightly psychedelic makes this old-school soul track by Breakbot an instant favorite of mine. The animation goes with the flow and makes it a perfect addition to the day-late FNMV collection.

Breakbot and Ruckazoid merge, creating Breakazoid, a cosmic pimp, who distributes his love to humans by taking them across the galaxy on the planet love.

Directed and animated by Olivier Lescot.

The Wolf – SIAMÉS

I really like this 2-plus-1 color animation – simple, stylish, brutal. While I suppose it could be a sort of love story, everything about it shouts addiction to me. A song I know all too well. The eyes floating out of his drink, the wolves chasing – it all resonates.

Whatever the story, it’s great animation and a a catchy tune by Siames and perfect for a Friday night music video.

The Last Belle

A bit longer than usual at 19 minutes, but well worth the time.

The film was created using ‘old-school’ technology: 35,000 hand-drawn and hand-painted pieces of artwork, shot directly onto 35mm film with a rostrum camera, to achieve a traditional ‘cartoon’ feel. via

Directed by Neil Boyle, music by Stuart Hancock & The Bratislava Symphony Orchestra

All Hell is Breaking Loose

Disciples of Funk

While I admit that only part of this day-late-bonus-FNMV is animated, in it’s defense, it is Bootsy, so the live action parts are closely related enough to qualify.

Bootsy Collins is a bassist and a veteran of both James Brown and Parliament-Funkadelic. This tune is with Bootsy’s Rubber Band. I’ve always had a taste for heavy funk and he knew how to bring it. Drop some Johnny Guitar Watson and Ohio Players into the playlist and I’m set.

In 1976 Collins, Catfish, Waddy, Joel Johnson (1953-2018), Gary “Mudbone” Cooper, Robert Johnson and The Horny Horns formed Bootsy’s Rubber Band, a separate touring unit of Clinton’s P-Funk collective. The group recorded five albums together, the first three of which are often considered to be among the quintessential P-Funk recordings. via
