David Knight - 15th July 2008

The Automatic, faced with the difficult job of following up a Monster record, have swapped South Wales for something a bit more exotic.

Paul Minor's video will have environmental campaigners growling in disgust but in fact it's arguably the best location ever: a aeroplane graveyard in the Mojave Desert. Expect Top Gear producers to be all over it as soon as they see this. The band rock away amid the rotting hulks of 747s through sandstorms, and try to avoid snakes on planes (right). And like all work out of Streetgang Films it's great looking - it was shot by SGF newbie Carlos Veron.
