The above video is for b-side Today’s Cross by Frightened Rabbit. I mention this for two reasons:
Firstly, I really like the song. This is good news, as I wasn’t that keen on their last album, and they are really nice guys so I genuinely want to like their stuff. Now I am looking forward to hearing their new record Pedestrian Verse, which is good.
Secondly, the video above was made by young Ian who works for Song, by Toad Records, along with some of his chums. It’s a clever wee video in its own right, but its sheer slick professionalism rather raises the question of why everything at Song, by Toad Records is so fucking shambolic. I assume this is a subtle hint that we could and should be doing better!
So well done old chap, a fine piece of work. If only everything around here were so well-executed!
