The Skatt Brothers (or Skatt Bros.) was a Canadian band formed in 1979 was supposedly modeled after the Village People for parallels in music, but for a straight audience and by straight (?) masculine men.
They did not succeed.
Sean Delaney formed the band in 1979 and was signed to Casablanca Records by Neil Bogart. In 1979, the band released Walk the Night , on the Strange Spirits album. ” Walk the Night” reached #9 in the Billboard charts and #1 on various national charts. Walk the Night is considered the band’s cult classic . But in 1980 the band released a single called Life at the Outpost which while not as popular did reach the Top 25 internationally and hit Number #13 in Australia.
This official video for Life At The Outpost was done by the Australian record company, without the actual Skatt Brothers, using male models instead when repeated requests to the bands management company to produce a video for Life At The Outpost went unanswered.
It’s the the finest music video never to reach popular rotation and a must see.
