move, eat, learn
by rick mereki, tim white and andrew lees

+: this video generated some controversy in britain. the original version of the music video (showed here) featured almond and ball in a bloody butcher shop surrounded by chainsaws, nude actors, and dwarves. however, the film was confiscated by police and censored before it was even released. as a tongue-in-cheek substitute, a re-filmed “sex dwarf” appeared in non-stop exotic video show featuring almond dressed in a tuxedo, directing a symphony orchestra of transvestites. a copy of the original “sex dwarf” can be found on tim pope’s website.

blood, sweat & vinyl: diy in the 21st century - trailer
dir.: kenneth thomas

live concert footage, exclusive interviews, and historic documentation focusing on 3 fiercely independent music labels and their bands.

featuring neurosis, isis, godspeed you! black emperor, pelican, oxbow, evangelista, thee silver mt. zion memorial orchestra, cave in, and many others whose music and art found ideal homes in the artist-run record labels of hydra head, neurot, and constellation.

these labels combine hard-to-define, heavy music with a visual aesthetic that has enraptured worldwide fans, without the need for radio or corporate media outlets. they uphold the legacy of treating music as an art form, not as a product.
