UNKLE feat. Nick Cave – Money And Run Video


Never you fear, the above video — directed by Tom Haines — isn’t wholly X-rated (it’s more like the edited-for-TV version of American Psycho than the director’s cut), it’s just straight-up ominous and disturbing. (Which means that it is NSFW, so be warned, O cubicle-dwellers.)

“It has a sort of Clockwork Orange-esque feeling about it,” says James Lavelle, of UNKLE. “It follows the idea of taking the money and running — how vulgar and gratuitous we are financially at this point in time. The story follows the excesses of rich individuals preying on the weak and poor.”

“It is not intended as a direct broadside to any particular politician, though borrows from the iconography and styling of the Bullingdon set who reign supreme,” says Haines. “I suppose it’s a crude allegory, but in that sense it allows us to have a lot of fun with the scenarios and settings. The kind of fun that makes you feel uneasy in hindsight.”

The song is the lead single off of UNKLE’s new EP, Only The Lonely
