The Bubblemen are coming!
Who are the Bubblemen?
According to this video, the Bubblemen lived in London and looked like they might be offshoots of the infamous killer bees who used to appear during the early seasons of Saturday Night Live. Underneath the Bubblemen costumes were Daniel Ash, Kevin Haskins, and David J, three former members of Bauhaus who later formed a band called Love and Rockets.
The Bubblemen were a side project of Love and Rockets. They only released one single and video but they later made cameo appearances in the videos for Love and Rockets’ No New Tales To Tell and Yin and Yang (The Flowerpot Man).
The Bubblemen Are Coming was issued by Beggars Banquet Records and came with three additional tracks, Bubblemen Rap, Bubblemen Rap (Dub Version), and Bees. The video perhaps achieved its greatest exposure when it was featured on an episode of Beavis and Butthead. It’s been a while since I’ve seen it but, if I remember correctly, this video really freaked out Beavis.
