David Lynch – Crazy Clown Time

25 06 2013

So a master of film has tried his hand at music. David Lynch’s inventive and surrealist presentation of the world has crossed into multi-artistic disciplines. Like, all of Lynch’s work there is plenty of room for personal exploration and interpretation. The song “Crazy Clown Time”, similarly gives the audience that voice. Do the characters convey some of Lynch’s childhood memories, or are they a contemporary commentary on the society that he perceives? Lynch’s authorial voice throughout reminders us that he is the ultimate puppet-master, director, God in his own world.  The music video itself seems  imperative when combined with the music. I shall leave the rest of the analysis to you. Weird and wonderful, strange and stimulating, I think the title says it all.



Coldplay – Don’t Panic

30 05 2013

A subdued classic from back in the day when Coldplay had musical integrity. This song makes me warm inside – listening to the chorus is like taking a sip of creamy hot chocolate in the snow. Or downing half a bottle of Jack Daniels in an alleyway in Shoreditch.
