Mika Miko are one of the Smell’s most entertaining bands. In this clip for oldish track “Wild Bore” they hop on some trampolines and document it in black and white. The video was directed by Mika member Jennifer Clavin, aka Victor Fandgore, aka past actress, aka the woman with the blond hair and one-piece sorta outfit singing. She and No Age’s Dean Spunt have been partnered up for a few years. If you remember, she directed their “Goat Hurt” bicycle ride, which we mentioned is also available on the New Video Works DVD out on Spunt’s PPM label. This is what you call a scene. (And despite any backlash it might receive post-No Age, Abe Vigoda, HEALTH, etc., success, a pretty great scene, at that.) Speaking of which: the “Wild Bore” clip was shot at the Smell. Follow the bouncing band:
