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!


Teen Mortgage – Is It

Kids, once upon a time, video was analog and VHS tracking really was our worst nightmare. Trash punks Teen Mortgage take us back to the camcorder glory days with “Is It”, the catchy single from their debut pay-what-you-want EP Strange Times on Burger Records. Jay and Ed met on Craigslist and probably also picked up the gear to make this video there too. Catch them next at the Rock & Roll Hotel’s 6th annual Brodown Throwdown Festival in the afternoon of Saturday September 16th.
