Re Run Theater presents 1986 – The Year In Videos.
Bon Jovi, The
Beastie Boys, The Bangles, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Cameo, Depeche
Mode, Pet Shop Boys, Iron Maiden and much, much more…
record labels were spending copious amount of money on music video
production values. A great variety of visual emotions flooded the MTV
broadcasting screens of the world. Somber cold war anthems, glorious eye
candy from Peter Gabriel, Eurythmics and a then unknown Portland band
called Nu Shooz, the blonde diva continued her reign and another Jackson
sibling took control. We’ve tried to squeeze all the best into one
electric evening: mock concert videos, mini movies, movie tie ins, hip
hop and rock hybrids, break out songs, beautiful psychedelia and of
course: exquisite perfection from two recently departed genius legends
in their prime.
MTV bumpers and commercials, all culled from the
confines of 1986 VHS recording sessions are interspersed throughout to
make this a true Video Time Machine.
