Music Video Whatever: The Grifters


Today's Music Video Monday is on Thursday. Forgive me.  

On Monday, between finishing up my cover story about Memphis documentary filmmakers traveling to South Sudan and watching and reviewing Finding Dory, I neglected to bring you, loyal Memphis Flyer readers, a music video on Monday. The time to remedy that is now. 

In light of the news that the seminal Memphis indie rock albums One Sock Missing and Crappin' You Negative by The Grifters are getting a long-overdue re-release courtesy of Fat Possum Records, here's a video from the band's 2013 music video campaign. "Teenage Jesus" was directed by Grifters bassist Trip Lamkins and Justin Thompson. The song from the One Sock Missing shows the band at their ragged best, and the video features...wait for it... an adolescent Jesus on a skateboard.
