SPANISH TEENAGER


Casey Spooner, one half of the electro-dance outfit, Fischerspooner, has just released his first solo project, "Adult Contemporary" that is currently available on Itunes. The album has more of a definite pop/rock-edge than his previous work with his group.

The first single, "Spanish Teenager" which features guest vocals from Jake Shears of The Scissor Sisters, has a music video directed by photographer, Luke Gilford. The video has a trippy, hallucinogenic feel that combines projected images of beach goers of various ages and genders enjoying a day in the sun over shots of Mr. Spooner and a variety of nude young men. This certainly feels more like an art project than a music video but it is still very fascinating and sexy as well as a little odd.
