Thanks to "ROCKABILLY REBELS COW" also for the organization of the "ARCHIVES" clip!
It's slightly possible that you have seen a very similar video clip by somebody famous in 1999. Same song, similar premises, same main dancers' clothing, half-dressed waitress, boy & girl watching the show, arrival in the vintage car, similar shooting angles, structure of the scenes in the video, identical general feeling, etc.?
Ain't there too many similarities?
Feel free to make your own conclusions about it!
Original 9-piece „Pete Anderson & The Archives" band from Latvia included three saxophones, which expanded to 11-piece with the addition of a trumpet and a trombone in its line-up, had successfully toured all over Europe in late 1980's and early 1990's. It can be argued, that this band preceded the resurgence of the swing revival sound by years, making it their own distinctive style they used to call „BRASS-A-BILLY" -- combining "rockabilly" with swing music "brass" instruments. These guys are well-known in Europe, but American audiences unfortunately are not too familiar with them...
