Philly Video Music Festival presents EXTENDED PLAY THEATER Longform Videos of the 1980s One phenomenon to emerge in the Golden Age of Music Video was the longform video. An artist would attempt a video album that connects the songs through a video narrative, resulting in an extended length video project. Noted director Julien Temple (The Filth and the Fury, Absolute Beginners) helmed three of these, all of which are presented tonight, in a program curated by music video historian Stephen Pitalo. David Bowie's "Jazzin' for Blue Jean" (1984, 20 minutes) A rocker & a loser vie for the same girl in a rock club, providing the backdrop for an extended version of Bowie's hit "Blue Jean". ABC's "Mantrap" (1983, 55 Minutes) British pop group ABC, using songs from their album The Lexicon of Love, star in a spy-caper where their unsuspecting lead singer, Martin Fry, is duped into fronting the band because of his striking resemblance to a foreign secret agent. Mick Jagger's "Running Out of Luck" (1987, 80 minutes) Jagger spotlights songs from his first solo album She's The Boss as his character's trip to Brazil results in his kidnapping and delivery to the oversexed owner of a banana plantation.
