zombieIf you’ve been wondering where Rob Zombie’s unique directing style came from then never fear beccause you can see the origins right here. For this week’s music video of the week, we are going back in time since it is Throwback Thursday after all and we have a good one. In 1995, White Zombie would release what would eventually become their last album together in Astro Creep: 2000 (Astro-Creep: 2000 – Songs of Love, Destruction and Other Synthetic Delusions of the Electric Head is the full title) and at this stage in the game Rob Zombie was already directing the band’s music videos. Electric Head PT. 2 (The Ecstasy) was the first single off the album and the music video featured everything you would want from a Zombie video as the band performs with a circus in the video. You’ll notice that Zombie employs the same kind of film tricks with the visuals that you’ll eventually see in his first horror film House Of 1000 Corpses with he grainy footage and all the craziness. All the freaks came out as well for the shoot which gives the video the feel of a mad circus which is very cool. This was always one of my favorite music videos from the White Zombie years and if you look carefully you’ll see a young Sherri Moon Zombie in the video too. Check out the video below and get ready for a wild ride.
