Dakota Motor Co - Stand Up

Today’s Video Flashback is from the female led Alt-Rock band from the early 90’s, Dakota Motor Co. The song is “Stand Up”, off their “Welcome Race Fans” album (1994 Myrrh Records). The band released two major full lengths with original singer, Davia before she eventually quit and a new singer was brought in for their final album in 1996 (Atlantic Records).… Continued →

Mxpx

Today’s Video Flashback is from Mxpx. I am featuring two songs/videos by them, one in 1995 “Teenage Politics” (From ‘Teenage Politics’ Tooth & Nail Records), and the other 2005 “Heard That Sound” (From ‘Panic’ Side One Dummy Records). I first got into this band in 1994 with their Pokinatcha album after some random dude recommend that I check out the cd at a Christian bookstore when I was in high school.… Continued →

Demon Hunter - Not Ready to Die

I know we already had a Video Flashback earlier this morning from Squad 5-0 but I felt that in celebration of Demon Hunter’s new album “True Defiance”, we’d offer a double dose of Video Flashback just for today. I have posted the Demon Hunter music video for “Not Ready to Die” off “Summer of Darkness” (2004 Solid State Records) and the band’s new video for “My Destiny” off “True Defiance” which released today April 10th.… Continued →

Squad 5-0 - I Don't Want to Change the World

Today’s video flashback is from Squad 5-0 and their song “I Don’t Want to Change the World” (‘Self Titled’ 2002 Tooth & Nail Records). The band went through so many different phases over their run as a band and this is a fine example of their high points. The band will be reuniting this summer for Cornerstone Festival.… Continued →

Thrice

Today’s Video Flashback is from the band Thrice. Since the band is going on an extended hiatus this year, I thought it would be appropriate to look back at some of their videos over the years. The band has come a long way since their early “Identity Crisis” days. What album is your favorite?… Continued →

Pennylane - Riverside Waiting

Today’s Video Flashback is actually from one of the bands I worked with back in 2004. The band Pennylane from the great state of Hawaii released an independent “demo” that I really dug and thought it was catchy enough to re-release (and re-master) as “From Paradise to Parking Lots” back in the summer of 2004.… Continued →

Relient K

Today’s Video Flashback is from Relient K and features five videos. First video is “Must Have Done Something Right” off the album “Five Score and Seven Years Ago” (Capitol 2007). I love this song. The second song is “Who I Am Hates Who I’ve Been” off “Mhmmm” (2004 Gotee/Capitol). The third song is “Chap Stick, Chapped Lips, and Things Like…” (2003 Gotee Records).… Continued →

Spoken - Promise

Today’s Video Flashback is from the band Spoken for their song “Promise” off the 2003 release “Moment of Imperfect Clarity” (Tooth & Nail Records). This is a great, feel good song by Spoken and ranks as my favorite (of theirs). Check the video out below. I also posted a super old music video from Spoken for their song “Forevermore” off the “Echoes of the Spirit Still Dwell” to give a taste of their pre-Tooth & Nail days.… Continued →

Man Alive - Say What You Want

Today’s Video Flashback is from Man Alive. This Israel based pop-punk band and I go way back. I remember carrying their early albums in my store and connecting with them through email. The band even played my “I’m Biggest Fan Vol. 2” show back in 2002 here in Orange County (no, they were not on I’m Your Biggest Fan Vol.… Continued →

Training for Utopia - Two Hands

Today’s Video Flashback is from Training for Utopia for their song “Two Hands” off “Plastic Soul Impalement” (1998 Solid State Records). This was the band Ryan Clark fronted before starting the whole Demon Hunter craze. Prior to that, he was in the band Focal Point which released a 7″ and full length on Tooth & Nail before calling it quits.… Continued →

Strongarm - Trials

Today’s Video Flashback is from Strongarm for their song “Trials” off the “Atonement” album (1995 Tooth & Nail Records). This was the album that got me into the band the first time. I had the pleasure of seeing them perform on two different occasions with original vocalist back in the mid-90s and they were an explosive spirit-filled band.… Continued →

Jars of Clay - Crazy Times

Today’s Video Flashback is from world renowned Christian rock band, Jars of Clay, and their song “Crazy Times” off the “Much Afraid” album (1997 Essential Records). This band has come a long way and their sound is constantly changing over time to what it is today. Everyone has their own favorite Jars albums and mine just happen to be the few they put out in the 90’s.… Continued →

Slick Shoes - Alone

Today’s Video Flashback is from the band Slick Shoes and their song “Alone” off the “Self Titled” 2002 release on Tooth & Nail Records. The band had/has such a catchy pop-punk sound as evidenced on this track. Their Tooth & Nail albums were all great. It’s also interesting to note that when the band released their first ep on T&N, the singer (Ryan) was only 14!… Continued →

Blindside - Pitiful

Today’s Video Flashback comes from Sweden based Post-Hardcore band, Blindside, and their song “Pitiful” (from “Silence” 2002 Atlantic Records). So many different viewpoints and opinions arise when talking about Blindside and their vast collection of music over the years. My personal favorite is still this album, although the 2011 release is also quite good.… Continued →

Poor Old Lu - All Pretty For the TV

Today’s Video Flashback comes from the Alt-Rock band, Poor Old Lu, which released several (awesome) albums in the early to late 90’s on Alarma Records. The band attempted a short lived come back of sorts in 2002 with their Tooth & Nail album “The Waiting Room”. The band featured brothers Aaron Sprinkle (Fair/Rose Blossom Punch/Studio Producer/Solo) and Jesse Sprinkle (has gone on to play in bands like Demon Hunter, Dead Poetic, Morellas Forest, Serene, and solo work), Nick Barber (also of Fair), and Scott Hunter.… Continued →

Olivia the Band - Saturday

Today’s video flashback is from the Hawaiian pop-punk band, Olivia the Band. The song is “Saturday” off their “Self Titled” 2005 release (Provident/Sony BMG). I talked with these guys on multiple occasions and caught them live. They were a great band and great guys from one of my favorite states, Hawaii.… Continued →

Living Sacrifice - Reject

Today’s Video Flashback is from a metal band most of would consider to be “Legends” of the music scene. They have a rich history and talent that many bands half their age wish they possessed. Many will argue about which Living Sacrifice album is their favorite and even my personal preference is slowly changing.… Continued →

Beloved - Aimless Endeavor

Today’s Video Flashback is the track “Aimless Endeavor” from the band Beloved off their 2003 Solid State release, “Failure On”. This band really perfected a style that is so prevalent in today’s music scene, yet they did it almost 10 years ago. The band was short lived however, releasing only an ep through Vindicated Records (later re-released by Solid State) and the one full length “Failure On”.… Continued →

Off the Record - Death of Me

I am giving you a double dose of Video Flashback today since it’s Saturday and I am sure many of us are bored 😉 Today’s Video Flashback is from the band Off the Record. This band released one album on Tooth & Nail Records (Remember When) before splitting and then signed with New School Records.… Continued →

Black Eyed Sceva - Justified

Today’s Video Flashback is from 90’s alt-rock band, Black Eyed Sceva for their song “Justified” from the album “Way Before the Flood” (1995 Five Minute Walk Records). Video is a little grainy as it appears someone either recorded from a VHS or filmed their TV. This band still ranks high on my list of favorite acts from the 90’s in the Christian rock scene.… Continued →

Project 86 - One Armed Man

I am going to start a new feature here at IVM called “Video Flashback”. It’ll just be a simple video from the past that will hopefully strike up some conversation and good memories. Today’s Video Flashback is Project 86 “One Armed Man”. I will try to post these daily. The song appears on the Project 86 album “Drawing Black Lines” (2000).… Continued →
