Gene Loves Jezebel

For this week’s installment of Vintage Video, we present a full 50-minute MTV broadcast from 1986 that finds Gene Loves Jezebel — back when there was only one incarnation of the band — performing at The Ritz in New York City circa the release of the band’s third album, Discover. As you can see from the video below, the Aston brothers are in full regalia, offering us a concert special that’s both great musically, and quite excellent to look at, too.

This footage was submitted to us by a Slicing Up Eyeballs reader (Thanks, Mark!). If you’ve got a good candidate for the Vintage Video feature, feel free to shoot us a link at
