Two Golden Shower Videos


By web gangsta | Published:

Golden Shower was a Brazilian band that hit the net in the early 2000’s, and over the next few years spent some time creating interesting mashups of video, electronica, and graphics. 

In 2002, Golden Shower released the song and video entitled TOTAL CONTROL, and began to win even more awards and recognition for their work.  The video is a tribute to the classic Tyco TCR race sets from the late 70’s-early 80’s.

Those of you who remember those Tyco TCR race car sets should have fond memories of the excitement an awesome TCR layout could be.   And it was always your friends who had the cool track setups, wasn’t it?  “Total Control Racing”, if you aren’t old enough to know, was a slotless race system that allowed you to switch lanes in order to get around the slowpoke pace car (or your opponent).   Having total control over your slotcar was a relatively new concept at the time.

For those who may be a little uncomfortable visiting a website called Golden Shower (understandable), here is Golden Shower’s Total Control video as posted on YouTube:

The Golden Shower website also has the Total Control MP3 file available for download, making of information, and a high-res video as well.

Total Control wasn’t Golden Shower’s only piece of listenable music, as Golden Shower has posted 13 additional MP3s on their site.  They’ve also posted another early 80’s-inspired music video called “Video Computer System“, which is based on audio and graphics available from classic Atari 2600 games.   VCS was released in 2000, and allegedly won Golden Shower the MTV Brasil VMA award for Best Electronic Music Video.  (The MTV Brasil site was down as we write this, so couldn’t confirm or deny this.  Go figure.)
