watch Turbo Fruits infiltrate a Nashville gang crew in their new video

By on September 25, 2012

Just wanted to pass along the new Turbo Fruits music video for single “Harley Dollar Bill$,” off their just-released record Butter (Serpents & Snakes Records). Directed by Michael Carter, the video is a rare glimpse into the world of infamous Nashville motorcycle gang, Best of Both Worlds Motorcycle Club – think 40s + cigs, pool, card games, and of course badass hog ridin’.

Says chopper enthusiast and Turbo Fruits lead singer Jonas Stein, “Michael [Carter] and I drove around town stalking the motorcycle club.  We finally made personal contact with them at their clubhouse in North Nashville and they took us in with open arms.  I’ve since been hanging out with them on a weekly basis, and they all came to see Turbo Fruits play our record release show at Exit/In.   It was quite a sight to see all their bikes parked outside the indie rock club.”  “Best of Both Worlds MC title comes from both crotch rockets (Hayabusas, etc.) and old school cruising bikes (Harley Davidson) riding together,” explains director Carter, “no prejudice.”
