Obits – “Operation Bikini” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Obits, Drive Like Jehu/Hot Snakes frontman Rick Froberg’s latter-day vehicle for howling, harrowing garage punk, embarks on a West Coast tour tonight in support of recent Sub Pop LP Bed & Bugs. To get you pumped, today we premiere Woody Tobias, Jr.’s video for “Operation Bikini,” which involves aliens traveling through space to find an earth wrecked by violence and extinction. Illustrations by Perry Shall are transposed against grim photography to powerful effect. Watch the weird, wild clip now.
Bed & Bugs is out now via Sub Pop.
