The Fast Mothers is the creation of Memphians Tracy and Chris Ruble, identical twin brothers who gathered a group of Bluff City players including Wayne Walker, James "Crickett" Warren, Matt Dees, Chris Stephenson, and the No Other Way horns. Mike Gilbert directed this video for The Fast Mothers' "New Staxx", a swinging, gritty, soulful song introducing the band's new expanded sound. In it, a bell bottomed-sporting bon vivant struts around town to show off his new shoes.
