An idiosyncratic video for Erland and the Carnival's Map Of An Englishman by Marco Sandeman that makes the most of that intriguing title. The psychological profile of a upstanding young gent is revealed through cutaways of his anatomy, like ancient medical theory crossed with Gunther von Hagen's Bodyworlds. And being English, he has all sorts of interesting stuff going on inside that would probably bemuse Johnny Foreigner. As Marco points out, the song was inspired by a Grayson Perry <a href="http://www.artificialgallery.co.uk/grayson-perry/map-of-an-englishman/" target="_blank">artwork</a> of the same name. "The band's brief was to make a video that would pay homage to the original inspiration and yet also work in its own right," says Marco. "I've long loved the morbid aesthetic of those old anatomical drawings and, while I was ruminating on the brief, the pictures popped into my head. "I shot the video in my flat over a day and spent two weeks compiling everything in FCP, Shake, Photoshop and Cinema 4D."
