"... by the Flowerpot Men, originally recorded as a demo in their previous incarnation as the arguably superior Flowerpot Men..."

The Flowerpot Men and White Plains pop up in King Dork, but I had never seen the film clips for these songs till now.

The guy who posted them has all sorts of great clips up there on YouTube, including a couple of groovy Edison Lighthouse tunes, Iron Butterfly, Harper's Bizarre, the Lemon Pipers, Pilot, the Seeds, the Beach Boys, the Move, the Electric Prunes, and much, much more.

(via - and God bless - the Bubblegum Fink.)

Wow...I had never actually seen the Lemon Pipers. They kind of look like what I imagined. Except for the singer. I pictured him with more of a mod cut rather than the greasy long hair and justache. That's awesome, though. Green Tambourine has always kind of been one of my favorite songs. That was a nice treat. Thanks.

Oh my god. Too. Great. TOO. GREAT.

That said: I had no idea people with such boppily cute songs could be so very very greasy. I guess it just wasn't as high a visual-exposure job back then.

I think the grease makes it cuter. Burrows’ and his chipmunk cheeks looking so excited he just may wet himself, his bubbly backwards-skip-to-give-everyone-else-face-time dance, the smiley band interaction - it is all just made more huggable by the masses of hair.
Also, I love that they are playing in a gazebo for a bunch of old people. Gazebo geezers.

I once searched for Mr. T Experience and, I guess not so surprisingly, ended up with this.


can't say I was disappointed.
