Broadcast and the Focus Group - "I See, So I See So"

Here is a new video from the Broadcast/Focus Group collaboration mini album (ep?), "Broadcast and The Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age". Which on paper would appear to be chocolate & peanut butter for somebody w/ my musical predilections. Sadly it didn't turn out to be the case, I found the album as a whole to be too same-y. But like when I finally got my hands on some Focus Group albums a few years ago and was somewhat underwhelmed by them (at first) it may turn out to be a matter of how I listen to this album, that it will improve greatly by being listened to in a more casual way? I'll have to try that out.

That said I do enjoy the above video and song(?) it reminds me a little of The Wickerman which I finally saw a few weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed, this video though is very much cut from the same cloth. And speaking of the same cloth I just got a DVD of the cut-up movies William Burroughs w/ Antony Balch et al. made in the sixties and early seventies. My thoughts on those wonderful movies shall be left for another post (which I'll probably never write?) But . . .

I think I smell another post of screencap madness in the near future?
