We first wrote about Freedom Records & Films’ documentary about Mojo Nixon back in 2013, and, at the time, it was expected out in 2014. We’re not entirely sure what delayed it, but the production has recently announced the film — “The Mojo Manifesto” — will be released in 2020. See the trailer right here.
The folks at Freedom Records & Films are in the process of putting together a documentary on Mojo Nixon, that one-of-a-kind loud-mouthed rocker who rose to semi-fame in the late ’80s with singles “Elvis is Everywhere” and “Debbie Gibson is Pregnant with My Two-Headed Love Child.”
For this week’s “120 Minutes” Rewind, we offer up this classic performance by Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper of their 1989 single “Debbie Gibson is Pregnant With My Two-Headed Love Child,” the video for which MTV refused to play, apparently out of fear of offending the teen queen.
This week’s roundup of headlines includes items on Killing Joke’s Jaz Coleman, New Order, Ian McCulloch, R.E.M., Aztec Camera, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Jazz Butcher, Crime and the City Solution, Men Without Hats, Ministry, Public Image Ltd., Close Lobsters, Mojo Nixon and more.
Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper parted ways in 1989 after a string of unlikely MTV and college-rock radio hits — including “Stuffin’ Martha’s Muffin,” “Elvis is Everywhere” and “Debbie Gibson is Pregnant with My Two-Headed Love Child” — but the rambunctious duo will reunite on stage in San Diego this fall.
