The Blood Brothers, Lazer Life (Dir: Patrick Daughters)
Amazing track, video . .
is this what th' kidz call screamo? just to know what to avoid (incl. horrors).
so: what's with the greyed-through blacks? guy's looking for a new look (a bit too hard)? v shoddy animation. bit of a mess, all round. guess i'm olde.
Nah, you got it. Screamo worked for Refused, that's for sure.. This vid is kinda messy, not sure what to make of it, but maybe it'll be on Subterreanean sometime (US MTV)
i liked the set. but the video is getting old at the end.
I'd wager that this is Daughters working at an extremely low budget, and after watching it a few times, I appreciated the "messy" feel and the milky grading. Visually, its exciting and stylish and not afraid to let the loose ends hang out. I'm usually on the fence when it comes to the Blood Brothers sound, and this video actually put them in a context that made them more palatable.
The song really started to annoy me towards the end but i definetely like the video. i like the low budge feel. Cool idea too.
Are you guys kidding? This is The Blood Brothers -- what rock have you been living under for the last few years? See also: Neon Blonde.
Is there any way to request a video? I've been looking all over for some HQ versions of C-ute (jpop) PVs of "Ookina Ai De Motenashite" and "Massara Blue Jeans". All I can find is the ultra-grainy YouTube versions.. help!
One reason Daughters style may seem to be getting a little more Gondryesque is that his childhood friend and Art Director/Production Designer Jeffrey Everett has been on Gondrys last several videos including "The Denial Twist"and the new Beck video "Cell Phones Dead"
vanoakenfold, wot has ur request to do wiv the video posted?
C-ute is one ov the Hello Project groups, which in its self is a spin off from Morning Musume Its concept is somewhat roughly akinish (err.. err.. in a japanese way) to 'Pop idols' Group members are replaced as they go solo or form other bands The Label keeps the name through successive generations of members Its now in in seventh generation
Stuff's ok but the analogy I'd come up with is 'Kylie Stock, Akin & Waterman kinda production in a modern setting, (J-Pop setting ov course)
What ur after mate is this site here:
Join it and ask on one ov its forums, the Video's or information u seek
PS u could learn to use google and wiki its fairly easy, n' most ov the information leads were already on u2b if u used some analytical thought
I think the Gondry comparison is a little lazy. By the way Jeffrey Everett didn't work on this video or "Cell Phones Dead".
robodrug: it has nothing to do with the video posted. There is no submit-request option, not even an email to write to -- it was the only apparent option.
PS. I was on google before google went IPO, I'm fully aware of it. Wiki is not a dependable source. I was recommended this site by a MeFite, sue me ;-P
vanoakenfold, Off a dah road, redirect
let me be the first to say that there is absolutely NOTHING gondryesque about this director's work.
This video is fine. Nothing more. the image of a pile of computer monitors and equipment activating to life is not very inspired.
Not sure if Everett worked on this video, I never said he did, I am in a strong position to know that he worked in some capacity on Cell Phones Dead as I worked with Everett on a job before it and asked what are you working on next and his reply was qoute "The new Beck video with Gondry"
Daughters tends to reference a lot of films in his work.
This one's obviously Tetsuo.
Sorry Spence, Jeff didnt' make it to Cell Phones Dead. Pete Zonga was the art director. Not that it matters
