Robert Longo, best known for his iconic late 1970s series Men in the Cities is another visual artist who tried his hand at making music videos. He’s the guy behind New Order’s 1986 video for Bizarre Love Triangle (above) and even worked with angry ginge Dave Mustaine from Megadeth on their single Peace Sells (below).
Early in his career, Longo had his own band too. The artist was the lead singer of Menthol Wars, who performed in New York in the late 1970s. Below is their very excellent single Even Lower Manhattan, released in 1982 on a Terminal Records compilation called Cleveland Confidential.
