Jimmy Brown - 3rd July 2012

Influenced by Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dali's Un Chien Andalou - complete with eye-slicing sequence - Matt Irwin & Aaron Brown of Focus Creeps give the thrashy pop of Garbage's Blood For Poppies a compelling, mysterious and gorgeously aged homage to early surrealist cinema.

With exceptional videos for Arctic Monkeys and Spector already in the bag this year, Focus Creeps treated the Blood For Poppies video almost like a photographic shoot, as Garbage singer Shirley Manson has explained. "We piled into a transit van with the ridiculously talented team of Matt Irwin and Aaron Brown and hopped around little pockets of Los Angeles creating a gorgeous surrealist dream," she says. "We ate ice cream sandwiches in the sunshine and laughed a lot. I didn't want the shoot to end." http://www.youtube.com/watchv=4OdTBCgqRt4
