Beg Steal Borrow has made two music videos for post-punk outsider band Extradition Order.
The first video is for the single, ‘I Love an Eyesore (LBJ ’60)’, which was released by Jezus Records on 5 May 2015, while the second is for ‘Boy In Uniform,’ which is set also to be a single from the band’s new album, Kennedy.
The ‘Eyesore’ video sees archive footage of Lyndon Baines Johnson mouthing the lyrics to the song as the band, disguised in LBJ masks, frolic and play in a grand-looking house. At certain points, LBJ is pictured giving various versions of the famous ‘Johnson Treatment’ to the band members.
The video for ‘Boy in Uniform,’ meanwhile, sees the band in pseudo-Village People outfits performing an illegal gig at an unspecified venue. Part way through the song, the police arrive to shut down the gig, but two enthusiastic young cops are seduced by the music and end up acting out a live version of Banksy’s famous ‘Kissing Coppers’ mural.
The band’s album, Kennedy, is a concept album based upon political events and figures from the USA in the 1960s.
In addition to the band, the ‘Boy in Uniform’ video also features Beg Steal Borrow regular Dennis Chua as a police chief, with newcomer Ariel Pozuelo playing one of his amorous underlings.
Beyond that, Beg Steal Borrow’s Selfie enjoyed a warm reception at a screening at the Cinémathèque québecoise in Montreal, Canada, in late March. Keep reading for news of any other Beg Steal Borrow screenings coming up!
