Shot the video for my version of “The Witch” (yes, The Sonics of Tacoma, WA tune) with the Green Pajamas‘ Mr. Jeff Kelly and I think the footage is quite nice.
Big thanks to Laura D’Asaro, who signed on to be our witch a week before the shoot and was fantastic, to Carlton IV, who shot, lit and acted in the vid as well as provided the knife that Laura killed him with (just pretend kids), and to Eric Padget and Don Johnson of the late (I think) Sigourney Reverb for being my “band.”
Wonderful set created by Susanne Kelly. Nice directorial approach by Mr. Kelly – can’t wait to see the finished vid!

Well, I have arrived at the blessed day. New album is done recording. My niece Rosey has taken Howie’s pics whipped up a pretty sweet cover. Time to get it out to the pressing plant!

Ok – catching up – Saturday after a frothy opening by Unmanned Drone, The Green Pajamas got up and did a bewitching set, featuring selections from the last ten years albums. The Queen Bee Is Dead feature real live ACCORDIAN and was particularly well received. The audience was not fully trained on its false stop and applauded vigorously, only to have it restart. Imagine their delicious surprise! The PJs were in top form indeed, Ellen!
Due to the vagaries of Pacific Daylight Time, The Icons were held to a concise set to close the evening, but made the most of it, rocking with a relentless vigor. Their version of the Pajamas’ Dancin’ In The Jailhouse was one of the finest reading given that composition.
A fine time was had by all!
