So, you have a band with a sort of dark, gothic improvised rock kind of feel and we all sit round throwing about ideas for a new video. None of us came up with the idea of “hey, what if we got someone to knit the members of the band so we could make a stop motion video”.
However, super-fan, Sue Read just turned up one day with them and a bag of toads so there we go! 9024 frames later we have “In Valetudinaria” .
If you look closely you can see some visual quotes: Neuadd y Brenin and Amgueddfa Ceredigion in Aberystwyth, Will’s house in Chepstow, and a landscape scene from the Cabinet of Doctor Caligari. Oh, and a rhinoceros.
