THE FLESH EATERS MADE A VIDEO & NO ONE TOLD ME

Thanks to Damon H for finding this one in the bowels of YouTube – an actual promotional video for THE FLESH EATERS’ song “The Wedding Dice”, taken straight from the “Forever Came Today” album in 1982. It stars Chris D in a lead role, both as actor and singer, and unfolds pretty much like you’d expect a Chris D-scripted video might: vampires, violence, beds of roses and a burning cross. Add some awesome sleeveless vests, sleeveless shirts, a fog machine and eerie shadow effects and you have something so totally “of its age” it’s almost from another world. I’ve made tracking down Flesh Eaters ephemera from this era a personal crusade, but I had no idea they’d actually shot a video. Please enjoy.

Yep I too only discovered this a few weeks back - who knew this existed? With all them bulging muscles and slicked back hair, you can understand why some felt they held down the horror-rock end of the whole X/BLASTERS spectrum. Oh and dig that Mary Woronov cameo! But just who is playing the lead vampyress?

Hi, I read somewhere that the director who made this made a video from the song Poison Arrow also. Correct ? This video is included in the extras of Border Radio DVD.

love the store scene

murderer-"oh my god no!!!"
chris d-"i'm gonna kill you"


it's strange that in all of Byron Coley's Flesh Eaters writing this video is never mentioned
