Destroy! Baby Tears' new video does.
by Andrew Norman
Destruction is the theme.
Baby Tears' new video for their song "Hypochondriac Wetdream" splices classic images of destruction with a strange live performance shot in a sweltering Omaha garage. Produced by the band and edited by guitarist Todd VonStup, the video is a crunchy, 1:40 punk romp teaser for the band's first full-length.

"The home shots are from 8mm films we found on eBay originally," VonStup says via email. "Red Asphalt is a California Educational Driving video for teens, I remember seeing that in high school. The soldiers are from atomic testing in Nevada — I think all of them got cancer and died. Other tidbits are destruction favorites. We have tons of random crap we love lying around for videos.
"... oh yeah, that heart surgery video is an instructional on how to do bypass surgery."
Baby Tears celebrates the release Oct. 7 at Barley Street Tavern.

That image should have been included in this video, if you ask him. Contact Norman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
