Hot Chip’s One Pure Thought by Martin & Youle @ Trunk

David Knight - 17th Apr 2008

Bevis and Charlie have also designed record covers, including Hot Chip's Boy From School, and made a low-budget video for The Young Knives recently. For this one, they recruited the good graces of animation house Trunk, who deserve much credit for bringing this one home in one piece, so the world can ponder it's points of reference...
