BOSCO and Blunt Fang bring ultraviolence to the small screen

Posted By on Thu, Mar 8, 2012 at 9:43 AM

Submitted for your approval, two bits of compete and utter ultraviolence from the local music scene. First up, Stereogum premiered the video for BOSCO’s “Joker” this week (March 7), and it’s like David Lynch scary. It's all about rape and revenge, so needless to say, it's not for the faint of heart and not safe for the workplace.

The second video is something different altogether. For “400,” Blunt Fang (Negashi Armada) pieced together scenes from Gualtiero Jacopetti and Franco Prosperi’s 1971 time-traveling pseudo documentary Goodbye Uncle Tom. Everything from the Technicolor grain of the film to the sheer racially motivated anger of this Italian/Spanish cult creeper is unsettling to say the least. Negashi's NSFW mantras over a carnivalesque grind only add new and unsettling dimension to the tension that’s unfolding on the small screen below.

Watch them, then go read an anthology of Ghandi's writing to make yourself feel better.
