Workout- Psychic Plowboys

It was great fun. We shot the video for Workout over two days, in a downtown Memphis warehouse, across the street from The National Civil Rights Museum. It was us, Libby the dancer, and the small crew of David Marks and Eric Wilson. The warehouse went on to serve as Psychic Plowboys headquarters, hosted many parties and things I won’t talk about here. A few years later, Memphis rock and roll band, Lucero would perform for the first time there. The video was rejected in Memphis, but somehow made it on MTV in rotation for a short while and national distribution by Rock America. Music videos are essential in the music industry today, but in 1988, music videos were reserved for artists with financial backing. David and Eric went on to shoot videos Memphis rockers, Neighborhood Texture Jam, Voodoo Village People and The Hellcats.
