It's a crazy clown time world premiere on Music Video Monday!

Well, not so crazy, but still clowny. Harlan T. Bobo has been responsible for some of the best Memphis music of the 21st century. And yet, he still remains an elusive figure. In 2009, I interviewed Craig Brewer about his pioneering web series $5 Cover, which featured a classic performance of "Too Much Love" delivered by Harlan while on stilts and wearing full clown makeup. Brewer said capturing Harlan's act felt like "getting Bigfoot on tape." You don't believe it's possible, but here it is, staring at you.

In the last few years, Harlan has decamped to France. But he returned earlier in 2018 to record his album A History of Violence for Goner Records. Music Video Monday is proud to bring you the world premiere of the great looking video for "Nadine", directed by James Sposto. Spend a few glorious minutes in Harlan's brain, and thank us later.
