Jimmy Brown - 17th Aug 2010

Producer Justin Diener explains:
"When Andreas was a young artist he did a year long residency in a small town in the Scottish Hebrideans Islands called Lochmaddy. His only friend was a local Shepard named Adam.

"One night at the pub Adam told Andreas about a newborn sheep he had just delivered that was horribly deformed, the creature was like a fuzzy egg with one arm, a mouth and one eye. Sadly, Adam had to kill the poor beast.

"Andreas was obviously haunted by this story when he created this video for Madder Red. We witness the final day of "Bommel" had he been adopted by actress Kristen Bell and raised in Mar Vista, CA".
