COMING TO A VIDEO OUTLET NEAR YOU!



Something has been lurking from beneath, ready to explode upon the city streets to inspire young minds and strengthen young hearts. Local villagers say its those damn underground sewer dwellers that have become so troublesome...little to they know it's just TNUC viciously at work in the lab.

Futurecop! have tapped yours truly, to deliver a new video for their upcoming single, 1988 Girls. This marks the second opus by Futurecop! that TNUC has lent his helping hand to. After the global success of the Karate Kids video, a triumphant return only felt right, and was soon on the horizon. So what can you expect to see in this visual feast for the eyes? Without giving too much away, you can look forward to plenty of bubblegum teenies, extreme-close-ups, dreamscapes, shade-tippin' and a certain family-friendly Sasquatch that we've grown to love along the years.

For now, to quench your thirst for all things TNUC, here are two tracks that I've been waiting for the right time to post. The first is a song that every time I hear it, reminds me of Futurecop!. It's the main title theme to the 1987 comedy, Overboard. If I hadn't seen the movie, I would almost believe it if they told me that this song was part of some "early demo sessions" stage of the group. Listen to these melodies and try and tell me it doesn't have that Futurecop! grace & charm...





The second track of equal importance and relevance is dug deeply from the 1983 Private School soundtrack. One of the many fixations that TNUC and Futurecop! share is the love for 80's-dream-teen, Phoebe Cates (see above photo). This girl turned boys into men. If i'm not watching her infamous slow-motion build-up bikini scene from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, then I'm definitely watching the scene in Private School that features the following bubblegum hit. OK, time for me to put this little number on repeat, fall asleep, and dream of Phoebe Cates coming through my window to have a pillow fight in my bedroom.

Love the blog and your love of classic 80s films, great taste and attention to detail. My band is Timid Unicorn and we have an 80s driven sound, think Jeffrey Osbourne meets Rick James and .38 Special in at the local skating rink. http://www.purevolume.com/timidunicorn
Also you must check out this great blog called:

kyle,
Timid Unicorn is a bad ass sounding project. "Looking Dangerous" needs to be completed, it's raw and lethal.

Long Island,
DONE. Love the new look of "the vault". Fresh!
