    Default The Dresden Dolls pay video tribute to DLR!

    Now, here's something that took me by surprise. One of my favourite new bands over the last year or two is the Dresden Dolls, a strange blend of punk and music hall cabaret. With just vocals, piano and drums they make a pretty good racket, and I've seen them in concert. The drummer, Brian Viglione, is top notch, too.

    Anyway, I never thought there was any kind of VH influence on them, but lo-and-behold, the video for their new single, Shores of California, is a tribute to none other than DLR's California Girls promo.

    That's quite cool, with an inspired attention to detail. Neat find, thanks for sharing it.

    That's cool. I am also a fan of the Dresden Dolls as I think Brian Viglione is an awesome drummer. Caught them in Seattle last year and they performed a pretty cool version of War Pigs. Nice to know that there may be a VH influence in there as well.

    Is their name inspired by Swingers?

    You know - they would go to that bar the Dresden, and they watch that drummer and keyboard player sing "Stayin Alive". Nobody else in that band...
