Death Valley Girls Release New Video For ‘Disco’ With Rodney Bingenheimer


Death Valley Girls


I have followed the psych-glam garage rock band Death Valley Girls since their beginning, and now look at them, they have released a video with the Major of the Sunset Strip himself, the legendary KROQ Disc-Jokey Rodney Bingenheimer, the guy who helped launch the career of the Runaways, Blondie, the Ramones, Van Halen, the Go-Go’s, Duran Duran,….

The video is a strange and dark movie, a sort of horror homemade film with a satanic side and a blurry and dark camera capturing some strange ritualistic murders around a disco ball, although nobody can be really certain of what is happening. This is what the Death Valley Girls had to say about it:

‘A fever dream trip filmed in blood color! A love letter to Rodney Bingenheimer’s English Disco, the ultra low budget horror flicks of H.G. Lewis and the hallucinatory underground films of Kenneth Anger. Shot on Super 8 by director Kansas Bowling and featuring Rodney Bingenheimer, Rodney flashes back to his legendary 70s nightclub, where he finds himself DJing a soundtrack to a disco bloodbath. Maybe one of Charlie Manson’s runaway followers is responsible for the carnage or maybe Rodney is just caught in a dream?’

This is helping! The Valley Girls have been longing for that weird bloody-dangerous Manson/Anger/Fowley era for a while and this is the consecration of their dream directed by the great Kansas Bowling of TROMA fame.

As for the music, ‘Disco’ is an infectious dark boogie with their typical feisty girlie voices, the second song from their album ‘Glow in the Dark’, so you definitively should check out these riot grrrls live since they have a couple of tour dates in the following months.
