No, this video was not shot with Instagram. The vintage feel was captured with a 16mm Bolex camera following the group up and down the West Coast dring their summer 2011 tour. The video shows “men in dresses, women with armpit hair, grease, booze, and a 6.5 ton military truck.”
Who doesn’t want to ditch the New England Winter, drop everything and climb aboard the 6.5 ton tour bus with them?
The sunny montages on top of the cheery “ah, ah, ah-ah” refrain suck even the non-romantics in a whirlwind of nostalgia. It brings us back to the 50′s and 60′s with the sounds of the Supremes and the Kinks paired with the images of the Beat Generation.
Their four-track EP, The Fagettes, Vol.2, is up for download here.
