With 80's East German dance craze action!

Music Video for The Strange Magic, from their new album "Songs to Burn."

Shot at the Railway Club in Vancouver. The amazing archival footage comes from Archive.org.

The Railway is the most terrible place to shoot in the world. The space between the tables and the stage is about 2 feet, and this is usually filled with people either dancing or sitting, depending on the mood. In either case the band is at a half-step above eye-level and the camera lens takes up half the distance between my eye and theirs!
