This week’s SOTW is “Three Bodies” by the band of the same name. The Bodies were one of the top bands on the radio version of Radio Free Charleston, and this song is the third from the batch of four songs that I co-produced with the band and Spencer Elliott back in the summer of 1990. I”m told that this song is based on something that really happened to lead singer, Kris Cormandy. The photo on the left is a publicity shot that I did for the band around the same time. I shot in black and white, and colorized it just a few minutes ago. From top to bottom you see Kris Cormandy, Brian Young, and Brian Lucas. This photo was shot in our state capitol building, back when you could take a camera in there without being gang-tackled by a half-dozen security guards.
I picked this song this week because the latest episode of the BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW video version of Radio Free Charleston is online, and features a vintage video of Three Bodies performing “Shingles and Tar.” That was already a song of the week back in March, so this time I’ll give you the band’s “theme song.”
Be sure to check out the latest RFC, which also features Eduardo Canelon, Pentagram Flowerbox, and The Alien Threat. Plus there’s goofy dancing. Go to the Gazz TV page and explore.
