“Apache” by Tommy Seebach is 1977 music video brilliance. Weird facial hair, weirder facial expressions, sweet outfits, dancing apache girls, and lots of rockin’ in nature. And is that a young Jakob Nielsen on drums?

(And if there was ever a song that sounded like porn, here it is.)

That’s fantastic, the goofy, big smile laugh, combined with his outfit makes it all the more entertaining.

Btw, that link is home to some entertaining videos. The man-boobs video is particularly entertaining.

Pure genius.

If anyone was Flanders in persona, it’s Tommy Seebach.

I loved it instantly, and then I remembered why�it’s on Heavenly’s Social Classics Volume 3 - Dread Meets B-Boys Downtown. Different version though, by Michael Viner’s Incredible Bongo Band. Great compilation.

This video makes up for the butchering of a song that has had so many good covers.

Something’s rotten in the state of Denmark…

Encore! Encore!

LedZep could learn a thing or 2 from these gods for R&R.

The real funny thing about this isn’t the content of that video, but the fact that the clip has been taped from national Danish television the station DR (Danmarks Radio) is now trying to remove it. They already made lawyers call danish bloggers, so you should watch out. Although I am not quite sure what they would do against BoingBoing, Google etc.

Uh, it’s at IFILM. I bet IFILM’s lawyers are about as good as Danish TV’s lawyers. If not, it’s a simple DMCA request.

Ahhh… prog disco bliss.

That’s really nice.

That’s my era! I dressed like that … amazingly true to form.

Great stuff.


Someone just told me it’s a spoof. What? … I actually like it!

Don: It’s certainly not a spoof
