Man, what a drag.
We had to go all the way to the Bahamas this weekend to make a video for The Black Lips. The weather was awful, there was no booze and people were banned from wearing swimsuits. Nobody threw a guitar off the side of the boat but everybody had a thoroughly miserable time. Here you can watch The Black Lips sum the whole weekend up by singing a depressing song called “Go Out And Get It!”. In it they are accompanied by their friends from Vivian Girls, who were extremely unhappy about the whole ordeal.
Thanks to the Joe, Cole, Jared, Ian, Vivian Girls and especially Jake Burghart and Suroosh Alvi for making this video with me and aiding my recovery from the stress and mental anguish caused by this torturous experience.
Look for Black Lips’ new album Arabia Mountain in June 2011
