David Knight - 26th Feb 2015

Ed Lovelace and the Loveless brothers of Drenge team up to revive the dread spirit of A Clockwork Orange for the video for We Can Do What We Want, as a gang of latterday white jumper-wearing droogs - led by Robert Emms (Warhorse, Kick Ass 2) – cause mayhem and terror around contemporary Sheffield. 

Filmed on 16mm by DoP Patrick Meller, this study of mindless violence disrupting normal society - without fear of retribution - is chilling, compelling visual juxtaposition to the lyrics of the song.

Its also a return to music video, and a rare outing as a solo director, by Ed Lovelace. With his directing partner James Hall, as D.A.R.Y.L., they have been busy making the acclaimed documentaries Werewolves Across America, Katy Perry’s Part of Me, and most recently The Possibilities Are Endless starring Edwyn Collins.
