Just a couple weeks ago we introduced you to the cover stylings of Girl in a Coma. This Texas trio may fly under the radar for now, but they’ve got some big-time buddies by their side. Joan Jett signed the girls and Morrissey snagged them to open a tour. Now they have a new famous friend: director Robert Rodriguez. The Mariachi-violence movie man directed the girls’ latest video, for a cover of David Bowie’s “As the World Falls Down.”

Unfortunately, the Labyrinth cut doesn’t get the Sin City/Planet Terror/Machete treatment. It’s more jerky concert footage. The shots jump around like they’re renting each camera by the minute. Still, it’s a good cover, and hopefully the Rodriguez tie-in will give these gals another boost.
