Mike Viola Stitches Together Super 8 Clips For A New Video
Mike Viola just released a new video from his Godmuffin LP, and it can be seen on Rock and Roll Globe. “Sometime in the early 1970s, he tells the site, “my oldest brother Larry bought a Super-8 movie camera at this electronics store called Summit in Brockton, Massachusetts. Funny thing about the first rolls of film he shot – none of us really knew what to do when the camera rolled. So, we usually waved like it was a regular camera or something. Most of the footage is us waving madly at the camera, like it was the end of a play or the end of some kind of performance we were in. When we got the first few rolls back from the Kodak shack and saw how stupid we looked, and what a waste of money it was, we got comfortable and really started to play with the camera, and come up with dumb little horror movie plots and messing around with special effects.”
Some of that footage makes it into the new clip, for standout track “That Seems Impossible Now.” Check it out here, and get Godmuffin in rotation at your station!
