“BEAUTY” S’COOL: NEW DEFTONES VIDEO
Deftones videos sometimes feature smokin’ scene chicks (here and here), but I even dig the ones in which singer/non-actor Chino Moreno stars awkwardly (here) and the ones comprised wholly of concert footage. And I endorse the latter as an ace advertisement for Deftones’ always-killer live shows and the hot Mexican emo girls who attend them. And that’s just what we have for Diamond Eyes‘ fifth official video, “Beauty School” (above), with bonus backstage peeks and a few choice shout-outs by drummer Abe Cunningham: He flashes a DVD of Abel Ferrera’s King Of New York and dons a T-shirt from Minneapolis venue First Avenue (as he did two Fridays ago at Lollapalooza). That shirt + Cunningham makes me flashback to a 1996 Deftones show at First Avenue after which my face was punched into a different area code. I’ll never again cooperate when an angry jerk asks me to allow him a running start.
The Deftones tour is now winding through Europe and winding up in Russia, where the scene chicks are super-hot and, according to porn, will do anal with little cajoling. Cough dates here.
