It's two tales as different as day and night in Colin Read's gripping video for Radiohead's Man of War.
Battles 'Fort Greene Park' by Colin Read
Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn, "a landmark cherished for its history, trees and monuments", now has a tribute from Battles, NYC's kings of New math rock, on their new album. Colin Read's video is a more wide-ranging tribute to New York City, and all kinds of participants in non-motorized transportation.
Read brings together a small army of skaters, cyclists, joggers, scooterists, rollerbladers, and every other method of self-transport users - an extended crew of DIY transportation-enthusiasts. Then they're commandeered to pull along Battles pair Ian Williams and John Stanier as they perform, like latterday charioteers, or Brooklynite Ben Hurs.
Good to see them putting those pesky kids to work...
