What happens when you mix splatterpunk icon John Skipp with a one-man surrealistic rock and roll band, two of the filmmakers behind Never Sleep Again, a go-go dancer who gives new meaning to the term “eye candy,” and a mutant worm that has the need for speed?
You get magic of course, and that’s exactly what the Andrew Kasch and John Skipp directed music video for The Slow Poisoner‘s new song “Hot Rod Worm” is. Yes, it’s even wackier than you think! Buz “Danger Wallick” produces, with camera work from Justin Cruse.
The Slow Poisoner (alias of Andrew Goldfarb) is a one-man surrealistic rock and roll band hailing from San Francisco that has been playing the devil’s music to audiences across America since 1996. One foot kicks a drum festooned with sleigh bells while his hands strangle a guitar, and through his crooked teeth emerge stories of rural paranoia and cosmic horror, with tongue in cheek and eyebrow raised.
Song topics include swamp women, creeping fungi, exotic diseases, headless chickens, and witches in woods. His sound is rootsy and weird, something akin to a cross between Johnny Cash and Alice Cooper or a hoedown on Mars; significant influences include Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, The Cramps, Edgar Allan Poe, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jimmie Rodgers, David Bowie, The Gun Club, Elvis Presley, and Iggy Pop.
