Somedays you can fake like it's 1986

In college I became a HUUUGE fan of the animators The Brothers Quay, and fought hard to track down all recordings of their films.

Silly me, I had no idea they contributed to Peter Gabriel's SLEDGEHAMMER (which is a song I freaking love anyway) along with Wallace & Gromit animator Nick Aardman.

I just love the photography in this, the depth of the tones in the film, the gritty nature of it (picturing tails of film reeling through the production rooms) - it's just something that digital can never capture.

How fortunate we are to have access to so many articles like this, preserved in the kind of pop culture archives that is the internet.

I still love to dig up and rummage through these incredibly labor intensive music videos, they provide so much inspiration!
