The Black Kids are no stranger to the Internet. After launching their Myspace page with four solid songs last year, the 5-piece from Jacksonville, Florida quickly developed a local following and subsequent buzz among music blogs all over the world.
A quirky video surfaced on Scotland’s XFM Radio website a couple weeks ago with “I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You” as the music bed. The premise behind the video:
Ever wondered what goes on at the station when one of our presenters play a song on air? No? Well you might after this video.
The playful, new wave vibe of the song immediately connects with the antics (captured on a shaky camera) by the DJ and a slew of his radio station cohorts. The video itself has been making the rounds quite a bit lately, and rightfully so. Not only does it make me long to work at a radio station like this, it’s also proof that Irn Bru cannot be faded. I miss my brief stay in Edinburgh last fall. I’ll surely be back some day.
He’s got two left feet and he bites my moves…
