WHAT DO THEY CALL THE ACT? THE ARISTOCRATS!


F. Scott Fitzgerald was right, the rich ARE different. These kinky fruitcakes live in a mansion on the corner of Havelock and Ellis, in an upscale gated community where the shrubs are trimmed to resemble gumdrops and the lawn signs are always tasteful and Republican. Civic leaders in public, in private they smolder like wet copies of the National Review on a blazing birch fire.

Music is "Danger! High Voltage!" by the Electric Six, with Jack White on back-up vocals, and suggested for mature audiences with a sense of humor. Not for kids.

One of the greatest videos ever. The first time I saw this one I ran out and bought the album right away.

Vinylsaurus, hiya! It's a great video for sure. I've always liked the weirdness of the song ("Fire at the disco! Fire at the Taco Bell!") but hadn't seen the video until now. What a trip.
