I spent most of yesterday evening chasing a Dead Weather video. It appeared online in the morning and was immediately taken down by Warner Bros. But video files are virtual and a copy went up elsewhere. I missed that too, missed the next one and eventually found it at fuckyeahalisonmosshart, home to many good things. They got the takedown notice eventually too. It's currently available on antiquiet, here. It will probably be gone by the time you read this, but it'll be back somewhere shortly.
Die by the Drop is a great song; I love it. It suggests good things about the new album, Sea of Cowards, due in May. It's taking me a bit longer to like the video, which has the production values of Ed Wood, minus the rubber octopus (despite being directed by Floria Sigismondi, of The Runaways fame). Everyone looks evil and sinister in it, which is cool, and Alison digs a grave with her bare hands, which is even cooler, and everybody is incredibly clean and well-behaved in that lovely American way. (It looks like they shower between every take and get new clothes as fast as tennis players get new balls.) I will work on willfully suspending my disbelief, because, friends, of course I saved the video. It was great fun chasing it down but I'm not going to spend all of tonight on it as well.
Alison and Jack look amazing in it, but due to time constraints (late for work again!) we have to make do with a screensnap of Dean and LJ. The latter appears to have grown a beard, which really doesn't work in real life, but looks suitably sinister in the video. Dean is a rock god. Oops, that just slipped out.
