Suicide Bombers reminisce about their debut video for their track “High On Explosives”
Norwegian sleaze rockers Suicide Bombers have been looking back at each of their videos over the last few weeks and this time, they reminisce about their debut video for their track “High On Explosives” which appeared on their debut album Criminal Record.
The following message was posted on Suicide Bombers‘ Facebook page earlier today (with slight edits):
“HiGH ON EXPLOSiVES
This lookback wouldn’t be complete without our very first video!
We had enough trouble trying to raise money for the record, without playing live, so the thought of doing a video hadn’t really crossed our minds… but when the possibility presented itself, we went for it head first.
It was shot in an auto repair shop belonging to Tex Terror from Noctural Breed. We covered the windows with black trash bags, built a drumriser and did the rest with smoke and lights. None of us had much experience with videos, so it was very disorganized and went on for way too many hours, but thankfully we had an experienced camera crew who got a lot of great shots regardless.
As with several of our early videos, there were tons of ideas for scenes that we just couldn’t find the time, or locations to shoot, but the final result still turned out better than we had dared to hope for… and, looking back all these years later, it’s still a very cool representation of the band at the time.
Interestingly enough HiGH ON EXPLOSiVES was nobody’s first choice for a video. We discussed at lenght, but couldn’t agree and since this was the second or third pick on everyone’s list, it’s the one we did.
It’s a strong song that remained in the live set until the end of the SUiCiDE iDOLS tour, so we definitley got some mileage out of it, but that would be the last time we didn’t have the possible videos picked, and in order, before the recording of an album started.
HiGH ON EXPLOSiVES concludes the look back on all six SUiCiDE BOMBERS videos. Thanks for watching!
A new video is being edited as we speak and will be available later this year.
…over & motherfucking out!”
