Music Video Addiction: Sunday October 9, 2011 Edition

This is the official Thanksgiving edition of the weekly music video picks – that’s right, it’s Canadian Thanksgiving which is like American Thanksgiving, just earlier in the year and without Turducken. I attempted to find turkey related videos, but that didn’t work, so we will just go with good old music videos.

Fucked Up: Do You Feed? - ‘faked out’ band video by the innovators in Fucked Up.

DJ Shadow: Border Crossing - his super heavy, hard rockesque new video.

The Big Pink: Stay Gold - a new track that sounds like their old tracks.

Plaid: At Last - very cool track and animated video.

Data Romance: The Deep – stunning video and cool dance moves.

Joy Division: Atmosphere - amazing classic track to end this edition.

If I don’t go into a turkey induced coma, there will be more music video picks next Sunday.

Thanks,

Control – The Movie

I went to see Control (The story of Ian Curtis from the legendary Joy Division) on Sunday this past weekend. I was totally blown away by the film – it’s a definite go-see! The story was gripping, sad and at parts disturbing, while the cinematography was stunning. Check out the trailer!

Anton Corbjin directed Control with consultation of Ian Curtis’ widow and based on Debra Curtis’ book “Touching From A Distance”. Corbjin also directed a number of videos including “Never Let Me Down Again” by Depeche Mode (1987), “Heart-Shaped Box” by Nirvana (1993), “Lips Like Sugar” (first version) by Echo & the Bunnymen (1987), and “Atmosphere” by Joy Division (1988).

Corbjin doesn’t fall into the trap fo sensationalising Curtis’ death by hanging. He does a tasteful job of telling Curtis’ story. Go see it before it leave the cinema…it’s definitely worth it!
