Muchos años pasados, as many of you know, Matty Boy and I were in a band named The Wonders of Science. We were one of the few synth bands around at the time, but we couldn't get arrested. Some twenty-five years later we get fan emails from Sweden, Norway, and Germany, and even San José, California; Go figure!
In 1983 we released a single The Big Picture b/w My Only Desire. We recorded this song as it was always well received at our shows. Matty Boy was a Big Time Game Designer for Activision at the time, and had some cash, so we filmed a video to support the single, like ya do. The video went to MTV, whose representative told us that the "video is great; it should be on medium rotation, but since you're not with a major record label, it will have to be submitted to the Basement Tapes" program. Our video never got out of the basement, as it featured no smoke, no attractive young women in lingerie, or things exploding in slow motion. However, they did like to show it at film festivals or something like a film festival, as it is kinda arty.
After 26 years, The Big Picture has finally been uploaded to YouTubes. And you, gentle reader, may enjoy it here at Padre Mickey's Dance Party. Thanks, Eric!
Producers were Dan Wagner, Marc Berger, and Karen King for 3rd Rail Media, San Francisco.
