Luke Tierney - 14th July 2014

Kris Merc & Benjy Brooke direct The Peach Kings' Mojo Thunder video as a stylish black and white animation, loosely inspired by Sin City, which also happens to be a gripping noirish psycho-drama... 

While The Peach Kings provide the rock n roll, Kris and Benjy's video is liberally spiced with sex in the guise of an amply proportioned poledancer. But the driving emotion is not pleasure. The hitman anti-hero is haunted by the faithful hound he has killed in his grisly line of work.

In true film noir fashion, the dominant theme is guilt...
