Dr. John Cooper Clarke & Hugh Cornwell 'Johnny Remember Me' by Douglas Hart
British legends collide in Douglas Hart's morbid, expressionist piece for John Cooper Clarke & Hugh Cornwell.
Poet-turned-crooner John Cooper Clarke teams up with New Wave icon and ex-Stranglers frontman Hugh Cornwell in an unusual pairing - covering this ancient British rock 'n roll tune, and made further curious by Douglas Hart's dark and incredibly stylistic video.
The clip, presented in a 4:3 aspect ratio shows Clarke as a singular member of a funeral procession. Stylistically the video borrows heavily from German Expressionism, with a hint of Dario Argento thrown in for good measure. The outcome is sinister, yet theatrical and all sorts of cool.
