Blue Felix – Middle Finger Up: A Video Breakdown
In my constant searches for bad music videos and ridiculous promo pictures, I came across an article entitled “Tons Of Free Tunes on Masked Metal Mayhem”. Well, jeez, you know I have to click on something like that. The gist of the article is that Noah “Shark” Robertson of Motograter and Zombie Shark Records put out a free compilation of bands that wear masks or paint their faces. It makes sense that someone from a band with not one, but two gimmicks, would want to prop up other gimmicky bands. Nothing wrong with that. I enjoy a good mask or face paint every now and then. We’ve already done a Video Breakdown for one of the bands featured on this comp, Dirty Machine, so we might as well keep going.
Blue Felix is a nu metal band from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Hey, HessianHunter, how many times have you seen them? The band currently has over 16,000 likes on Facebook so the next time you see your favorite underground band play in a dingy basement in front of 10 people, bands like Blue Felix are rolling in the likes. Maybe it’s the music. Maybe it’s the gimmicks. Maybe the lowest common denominator is the sweet spot. Who knows? All I know is that you should watch their video.
