Videos for nearly every track of Dinosaur Jr/Sebadoh legend Lou Barlow's solo record Goodnight Unknown last year were directed by Adam Harding, which can be found on Lootube (which should be called Loutube, surely).

The exception is the clip for Sharing, put together by London artist Daryl Waller mostly from odds and ends of vintage cartoons (plus footage of Lou walking around with a box) which recalls the heady days of VHS in its pomp.

Having scoured the www for the obscure toons, Daryl explains: "I deconstructed these into single frames and manipulated each one, then stitched them back together again. I wanted the video to be like someone had just stumbled across an old VHS tape and stuck it in the machine to see what was still on there, everything recorded on top of one another, age worn and static storms.

"The song became the theme tune for a 1980's cartoon that never existed."
