Phantom Tollbooth - Mascara Snakes Video

Hippies! This video is for the mindbending track Mascara Snakes off of 2003's Beard Of Lightning by Phantom Tollbooth. The rub is that Phantom Tollbooth no longer existed in 2003 and this album was originally released in 1988 as Power Toy. Confused? Well, only in the world of Bob Pollard can you be such a big fan of an old record that your request to rewrite and rerecord all the vocal tracks is granted! So here is Mascara Snakes, my favorite track off the disc featuring new lead singer Robert Pollard. Many "fans" used the song as a piss break during 2003-2004 Guided By Voices shows, but I loved it big time- Doug really slayed on this one live. Funny video too- assembled by then future and now former GBV bassist Chris Slusarenko.
