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.”
