This week, the Canadian Government announced it will discontinue the penny and the US is now considering axing their penny as well (read about it here).
In honour of the penny’s demise in Canada this fall, we take this time to remember another penny, this time it is Pennie from The Automatic who also saw his demise since his band moved in a different direction and left him behind. The keyboard player and backing singer announced his departure from the band on September 18, 2007.
Watch The Automatic – Recover below.
You would think that we would have a Honda Indy themed edition of the weekly music video picks since it currently happening in Toronto. We have chosen to again not have a theme, but instead, just bring you some great music videos. We hope you like what we picked for you this week.
Digitalism: Digitalism in Cairo - great track with a sample from The Cure.
Sounds Like Violence: You Give Me Heartattacks - love the vocals on this track.
My Pet Genius: Anjelika in Jhericurl - an unknown band that is no longer, but so good.
Wire: Eardrum Buzz - crappy video, but catchy track.
The Automatic: Recover - such a great chorus which totally makes you sing along.
Jesus & Mary Chain: Never Understand - vintage J & MC with Bobby Gillespie on drums.
That’s it for this week. We will be back next week with more music videos for your listening and viewing pleasure.
