This video rules. Cameo by Stevie Nicks' The Wild Heart on LP! Cameo by Tim Koh of Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti! Cameo by your (my) dream girl on a skateboard wearing a Burzum shirt! Cameo by a payphone! Bleached is California punk in that both of those two words hold equal weight. This fits on the actual beach of Venice as much as it does on the shitty boardwalk. Can you be not decrepit and still be punk? Yes, you can. Just ask Lana Kim, the video's sprightly director. This video is on her Vimeo page right below "Video Chat with Ely," which is an equally entertaining watch. That's her brother. It's just them waving to each other.
