Deal’s Gone Bad “Shine” with New Video

Deal's Gone Bad Shine VideoMost bands today it seemes don’t have the creativity, time, money or all of the above to create any sort of video for their work. That’s a real shame too. The post MTV world is more interested in music videos than ever before. We live in a digital age where everything is viewable online and that means everything has to be visual as well as aural. Come on bands get creative! At the very least let’s see some sort of 30 second promo clip of the band and a new tune. I just miss the halcyon video days of Oingo Boingo, The Clash and Madness videos where creativity was not just in the music but in the way the bands presented their music.

One happy surprise is Deal’s Gone Bad though! Look at what these Chicago Soul Ska masters have done for their latest release. They made a video for their song “Shine” that features Puppets! Who doesn’t love puppets? The Muppets are huge! Check out the video below and sound off in the comment section below.

I've been involved in the Los Angeles music scene since at least 1995 going to shows, promoting, spinning records and running labels. Ska and Early Reggae are my passion among other things of course.
