Teen Mortgage – S.W.A.S.

Garage rock band Teen Mortgage make a lot of glorious noise with only guitar and drums. Tonight they’re getting loud at AdMo’s SongByrd opening for Bass Drums Of Death, so now’s the time to hear their newest single “S.W.A.S.” (Service With A Smile). The music video for it comes from a lost cartoon called Karma II at the end of a 1980 movie called Skateboard Madness, mercilessly cut from the DVD release of this cult movie. It’s got the unmistakable late 70s feel of animation in Sesame Street and The Electric Company, but with a crazy psychedelic not-for-kids vibe. Remember, all that was all drawn by hand!
