Atomic TV #9: The “Atomic TV Leftovers” Episode

Atomic TV “Leftovers” Episode from Atomic TV on Vimeo.

It’s spring cleaning time at ATV! These video odds and ends have been gathering dust in our archives for so long, they’re starting to irritate us like a pair of soiled diapers, so we decided to unload our shit on an unsuspecting public. If you missed our TURNING JAPANESE episode, you can still catch some yellow fever when Big Dave Cawley (King of Men) interviews Shonen Knife… then muse over Mr. T.’s inarticulate ontological imperatives in “Be Somebody”… drool over Porn starlet Ravyness as she sells sex toys at the East Coast Video Show… then join clean-livin’ Stella Gambino as she salutes Our Friend the Condom on Atomic TV’s LET’S BE SAFE sex segment (and shows you some nasty VD cooties films)… journey to the heart of darkness with black-hearted cartoonist Ivan Brunetti (SCHIZO)…and hear Josh Alan Friedman plead to let his people go as he sings the title song from his new album, “Blacks & Jews”…

Atomic TV: The “Swingin’ Neckbreakers” Episode

Atomic TV: The “Swingin’ Neckbreakers” Episode from Atomic TV on Vimeo.

In 2000, Trenton, NJ garage rockers The Swingin’ Neckbreakers played an an in-store set at Towson’s Record & Tape Collectors in support of their new album “The Return of Rock” (Telstar Records, 2000). Formed in 1992 by brothers Tom (bass) and John Jorgensen (drums), with Jerry Orbach (Law and Order) lookalike Jeff Jefferson on guitar, the Neckbreakers play the kind of no-nonsense vintage trash rock that compares favorably with Southern Culture on the Skids, The Lyres, and The Flat Duo Jets – the kind of lo-fi rock Atomic TV loves. The second part of this broadcast includes the 30-minute Elliott Smith documentary short “Strange Parallel,” a 1998 promo film directed by Steve Hanft to introduce the reclusive singer-songwriter to a larger audience following his discovery via the soundtrack of the 1997 film “Good Will Hunting.”

Atomic TV’s “Atomic Cocktail Hours”

Resistance is futile, so Atomic TV has decided to jump on the Lounge-a-palooza bandwagon, pledge allegiance to the Cocktail Nation and embrace Swankness in all its fez-hatted, zoot-suited, retro swing silliness… First up is a vintage commercial break paying homage to our legendary local blue-collar brew, Natty Boh. Then we drop by our fave watering hole, Henninger’s Tavern, where owner Kenny Vieth spoils us with food and drink while we we enjoy “incredibly strange space-age bachelor pad exotica” music videos by Combustible Edison, Korla Pandit, Martin Denny, Spike Jones & His City Slickers, a rare Raymond Scott Quintette film appearance, 1940’s “Soundies” music shorts, the hepcat hokum of Baltimore’s own Swingin’ Swamis, Don Knotts as “The Love God,” tributes to patron Saints of Swing Dean Martin and Buddy Love and assorted clips from drinkin’ flicks! Time flies when you’re having rum, so “drink up and be somebody!”
(approx 150 minutes, DVD-R)

Atomic TV – The “Pizzicato Five” Episode

Atomic TV – The "Pizzicato Five" Episode from Atomic TV on Vimeo.

Pizzicato Five – “Sweet Soul Revue” — This was my first glimpse of my fave J-Pop band Pizzicato Five and the images of Miss Maki Nomiya shaking those maracas and evoking the style and charm of Audrey Hepburn in the roof concert scene while P5 mastermind-maestro Yasuharu Konishi boogies away on his Hofner bass and original guitarist Keitaro Takanami strums his Fender guitar have become iconic for me…This was my first transmission from a band that never made a bad or uninteresting video and it always stuck with me. I read that this song was a big hit in the Philippines and that it was used on Japan’s Ranma 1/2 syndicated TV show. A real treat! –Tom Warner

Atomic TV – The “Just Another Episode” Episode

Another mish-mash mash-up of Atomic TV’s patented videoid-sleazoid stew, this installment opens with the sound of music – the trailer for sexploitation movie mogul Harry Novak’s “Mondo Mod” (1967), glam rockers T. Rex performing “Bang a Gong (Get It On),” and go-go dancers showcasing the latest moves in the film short “La Danse a-GoGo” (1964). Then it’s on to vintage Charm City-centric TV commercials (National Bohemian, American & Gunther beer, Mr. Ray’s Hairweave, Jesse White pitching weiners in a Stan Freberg-directed spot for Esskay Quality Franks), “Coming Attractions” trailers for blaxploitation classics Foxy Brown (Pam Grier), Dolemite (Rudy Ray Moore), My Baby Is Black!, and Wattstax (The Black Woodstock music festival featuring Isaac Hayes and comedy bits by Richard Pryor and future “Love Boat” bartender “Isaac Washington,” Ted Lange), the televangelist Robert Tilton spoof “Pastor Gas,” John Heyn (of Heavy Metal Parking Lot fame)’s homage to film countdown reel girls, “Girls On Film,” and Nancy Sinatra singing the swinging theme song to the otherwise forgettable 1966 Marty Allen & Steve Rossi spy movie spoof The Last of the Secret Agents.
