Yesterday morning, MTV’s Hive sub-brand did a nice featurette on our little label. Rest assured it was totally out of the blue. While we don’t expect to be moving into Dial MTV‘s top 20 countdown, we have a few suggestions from the video-era if they ever get really daring.
New York’s Colors go bananas in someone’s yard and in some kind of artist loft. That painting in the background? Just an original Basquiat.
A legit MTV play, this was the third of Shoes’ four (!) videos from Present Tense.
For some reason this Speedies track was overlooked for Numero 004, but we did sell it digitally on our site for a while.
While Loose Lips’ “Kyle” is the “hit” off their lone EP, Hung Up On Pop, the track is missing from this 1981 cable access concert from Triton College. The actual Kyle isn’t missing. She’s the girl in the black and white dress dancing on stage.
From Alfonso Lovo’s follow up to La Gigantona. Whatever you do, don’t fax this guy.
Despite being made at the height of 120 Minutes, there’s no fucking way they were playing this arty shit.
We are open to hosting a classic videos night on M2 or wherever they’re broadcasting images set to music these days, just have your make up artist call our make up artist.
While you’re still reading, pick up this great book about the early days of MTV co-authored by longtime Numero supporter Rob Tannenbaum.
