This uncompromising, unremittingly fleshy film for Band of Skull's storming Fires is a striking effort by a couple of moonlighting advertising creatives, Alex Mavor and Ed Kaye - going by the name of The Sacred Egg.

A hypnotically watchable debut from Alex and Ed (a team at ad agency VCCP) who clearly have impressive powers of persuasion - unless they actually found women with genuine builder's tans. It really could double as a public information film on the dangers of using sun-lamps.
