"Mission Control," the first video off The Dandy Warhols' sixth full-length, ...Earth to the Dandy Warhols..., epitomizes what the band and the album are: innovative and smart, self-aware and informed, and with a strong -- but never generic -- pop sensibility.
Shot in grainy sepia tones in the Dandys' own Odditorium, the video, directed by Mike Bruce, finds the band in space, playing their instruments as they float in zero gravity, frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor singing authoritatively, transmitting the band's message to the world down from the Moon. It's clever and fun, playing both on historical events and future occurrences, totally stuck-in-your-head catchy, the perfect depiction of what the Dandy Warhols are.
