Here’s our new video. It’s for the song “Man Near the Surface of the Earth” from the album However Strange which you can listen to and download here or buy in the popular cassette format from Burger Records here.
The video is kind of an homage to the 1968 film The Swimmer starring Burt Lancaster, which was itself based on a story by John Cheever. We’re very grateful to director Robert Sobul and his team for making this for us. Guylaine and James even have a brief cameo a few minutes in! Sadly Chris could not make it to the shoot that day because he was busy counting stacks of gold coins in his castle. That has a moat.
“We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth, at least the truth that is given us to understand. The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies.”
Happy Birthday, Pablo Picasso.
(25 October 1881 – 8 April 1973)
