She Mob Videos
She Mob’s video philosophy: conceptualize visual content that enhances the musical atmosphere, and don’t spend any money on it. This seems to work for us. All found footage is from the Prelinger Archives unless otherwise noted. Enjoy.
“(My Baby) Done (Me Wrong)” from Right in the Head
“Snow Smoked” from Right in the Head
“Mas o Menos” from Right in the Head – Images courtesy of Ted Frankel from Mexican Pulp Art.
“Bloodbath” from Right in the Head – Footage shot at Burney Falls and Lassen Volcanic National Park in California.
“What’s Your Game?” from Right in the Head
“Underworld” from Right in the Head – Hooping by Jackson.
“Arnica” from Right in the Head – Ode to plant-based medicine. Additional footage from the A/V Geeks Archive.
“Lobster Girls” from Right in the Head – A retooled video of a live-show video. During the live version (at the House of Zoka), we had a band meeting in the middle of the song. What’s amazing is that both versions, live and studio, are exactly the same length, even with overlapping discussion as part of the mix. That’s precision playing, my friends. Or just dumb luck.

“Luge” from Cancel the Wedding – Hail to this Olympic sporting event.
“Prozac” from Cancel the Wedding – Lisa took Prozac for a failed medical experiment and got a song out of it.
