1991-08 Select magazine (UK) (promo video comments by RS)
« on: November 15, 2008, 20:44:54 »
around the time picture show video collection came out there was an interview in Select magazine in august 1991 called 'i'm getting one of my headaches'. the interview included a section where robert was commenting a bunch of promo videos.
some funny details:

about 'lullaby :

...it was a kind of throwaway video. jim kerr didn't understand it, my nephews did. given the choice of audience i'd rather have my nephews. 
 :smth017 ;)

'lovesong':
...the opening shot is terrible, this lingering shot of a huge phallus that makes no pretentions to be a stalagmite at all.  
:oops:

'catch':

...it cost twice as much as any other video we've made: £120,000. and lol ruined it. we made this beautiful video and this old bastard in coalminer's jeans wanders down the spiral staircase not even botherign to pretend he's playing the violin.
 :?

'hot hot hot':

...i told tim pope i wanted us to look like a lowdown funky soul band. he translated 'lowdown' as 'dwarf' and 'soul band' as 'black and white'. polydor said it wouldn't get shown. it didn't.  :lol:
