Set in the late-night circus of English nightlife, RICHARD DAWSON‘s video for THE VILE STUFF is a dream/nightmare sequence set to his unique brand of punk-driven folk. Clocking in at over 11 minutes, the video is an extensive collage of revelry. Switching between bars and clubs, drunk friends and strangers get face time as they dance, sing, and smoke. The footage is mashed up and overlaid with everything from colorful patterns to fuzzy illustration to religious paraphernalia.
The bewitching video reflects the hypnotic sound of the song, which is the third track off Dawson’s latest album NOTHING IMPORTANT. In an echoing, anthemic style, Dawson gets personal as he tells a story of a group of school friends and one riotous night out that ends in broken cheekbones, a cracked skull, and worse. Basic guitar melodies and harshly amplified vocals complete the sound.
NOTHING IMPORTANT was released with WEIRD WORLD RECORDS.
