“Don’t Make ’em Like They Used To (Axe Mix)” Video Out Today!

Today TeamRock.com has premiered the new video from The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer: “Don’t Make ’em Like They Used To (Axe Mix)”, directed by Christopher Mills of Number Four Films.

About the video / a statement from the director:

A surreal, dusty, messy, dystopian future environment sets the stage for the modern blues dirge of The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer.

A captive and controlled audience is made numb by the presentation of weird movies, robot sex, bouncing skulls, visits by spirits, and a strange vapour which permeates the air in this odd animated clip.

An abuse of power by an overzealous prison guard, played by Brad Ashkewe leads to a prison break. Aerosol and magic gives some prisoners transformative powers, brought to them by a cross-dimensional visit from a spiritual leader, played by Joseph LaPlante aka Joey Stylez.

Carsen Gray plays the part of the escapee. She makes her leave with the help of O.G. Zigz

She’s given a magic box car by Wabs Whitebird – which transports her through many thin layers of other dimensions.

The video gyrates with the music like a bizarre carnival ride. The abstract narrative follows the ebbs and flows of the escape, and its strange, dark, and beautiful conclusion.
