Long before he was knighted for his charity work or staring in Pink Floyd movies, Bob Geldof was apparently one wacky guy. Seen here with his band The Boomtown Rats in the very over-the-top video for “Elephant’s Graveyard” – the standout track on 1981’s Mondo Bongo LP – it’s nice to know that he didn’t always take things so seriously. We can all take a lesson from that, and I gotta say that for a bunch of guys from DĂșn Laoghaire Ireland, they pull off a pretty good California Beach Party / Monster B movie parody. Enjoy.
