Director Ryen McPherson of Shoot to Kill (a Wendoh sister company) produces arresting videos for Las Vegas bands. Who can forget Dude City confronting bikers in a desert tavern in “Technology”? Or Candy Warpop battered by a sadistic birthday princess in “Smilefucker”? Or Deadhand blowing up the Magic Kingdom in “Places”? Add to that the image of twin pregnant blondes belly-bashing each other until one births a disco ball in blues-rock duo the Mad Caps’ “Baby Man.” Framed by a hilarious Masterpiece Theatre-esque host, the video is set in an abandoned warehouse. There, drummer Jon Real and singer/guitarist Ted Rader churn out a gutbucket ode to virile manhood as the siblings synchro-gyrate and grind. “Nothing short of despicable art,” the host concludes. Yes, the best kind.
