The video below slays me. Bo Diddley, with the Duchess..., ooh the Duchess. She, the total proto-Ivy. I was digging a lot of stuff about this one. Hell, first off, it's in shitty quality black and white, which is totally apropos. It gets so repetitive in the middle that it's almost Velvet Underground-ish. Then there's the dancers, and the trippy (for the time) prism effects. I started to fantasize about seeing that video at high volume in front of a wall of a hundred screens, all showing it simultaneously. Party 'til you puke.
