Arcade Fire – “Black Mirror”

27 Feb

Music video for “Black Mirror” by Canadian alternative band Arcade Fire off the album “Neon Bible” I guess you could say that Father has brought you all down his bible to read for this Monday.

Arcade fire is an amazing alternative band, i would highly recommend giving them the old listen. Either there first album “Funeral” or there second “Neon Bible” is a good album to start on for them, “Funeral” if you like more folky psychedelic music, or “Neon Bible” if you like more dark alternative type psychedelic music.

On a side note, whenever i listen to this song or see it in my music i always remember the British anthology¬†series “Black Mirror”, which is now on Netflix as an original series. I wont spoil much but its a psychological anthology series very reminiscent of “The Twilight zone” only instead of being in a warped reality of the 7th dimension, its in the very near future of ours. If you want to watch a really well crafted and good thinking show, then this is for you.

Dr. Devious and the Wiseman – Dance In Cyberspace (1992)

12 Jul

Music and video production from the late Guru Josh.

In his own words:

I thought, why not mix computer graphics to music and sell them as a visual album. There was no market. Woolworth’s and HMV said if you sell 2 thousand that’s good. Visual videos do not sell.

Despite no market I believed this was the next big thing and put my money, over 150 grand into digital video equipment, computers. I took 15 unemployed computer kids on the street, converted the 2nd and third floor of a building into visual design studios and spent the next 9 Months creating a 50 min video called Dr devious and the Wisemen, VR Dance in cyberspace, I was DR Devious but no one knew, the only hint was the company, GJ productions.

That video sold 220,000 copies and set a world trend. Dr Devious was the coolest character in the world, and no one knew who he was.
