FiASCO

Former Nerve columnist Grant Stoddard now has an ironic electro-porno-kitsch-clash band called F i A S C O, which must be typed with extra spaces and caps to emphasize its overthetoppedness.

Often-BoingBoinged photographer Clayton Cubitt shot the stills for their website, and the video for their first single is nonworksafe genius.

Fleshbot has more on "the making of" -- the video's comprised entirely of borrowed clips from a classic '80s TV show:

Anyone who's watched Manhattan cable television over the past 27 years needs no introduction to Robin Byrd, the pornstar-turned-Oprah of the smut set whose late night talk show has featured practically every adult entertainer ever to grace the marquees of the strip clubs of Times Square (back when Times Square actually had strip clubs, that is.) New York City band Fiasco pays homage to Robyn and her many guests over the years–not to mention their hairstyles, lycra unitards, and box-bangin' dance moves -- in a cleverly edited new video for their song "Those Feelings" ... lie back, get comfortable, and enjoy.
