Drazy Hoops - "Whip It"

13 June 2013

We got a big kick out of this sexy cover of Devo’s biggest hit. New parents especially will relate!

Chicago-born, New York based, Drazy Hoops is an independent singer/musician/songwriter who has released eight full-length albums, from 1998’s Straight To Black (Shimmydisc/Knitting Factory) to this year’s This Is The Sound Of… (Slow Burn). A compilation of Drazy’s songs called A World Away (First Flight) was released in Australia and New Zealand, and Drazy’s music has appeared in various movies and compilations through the years, most notably Hal Hartley’s “The Book Of Life” (starring PJ Harvey) and Next Stop Wonderland.

The video was co-directed by David Avallone and well-known character actor James Urbaniak, and features Urbaniak along with former Luna guitarist Sean Eden, a busy man who also plays in Elk City, Gramercy Arms, and Night People, and is now in the studio recording the debut record of Twilight of the Idols, an indie supergroup with Doug Gillard (Guided By Voices, Nada Surf, Cobra Verde), Dave Derby (The Dambuilders, LLoyd Cole and the Negatives, Gramercy Arms), and Kevin March (Guided By Voices, Shudder To Think).
