Luke Bather - 30th Mar 2017

Playfully toying with the idea of alter-egos and affectionately illustrating the idiosyncratic relationship at the heart of the band, WIZ is back with another epic video for Kasabian. And, yes, one of those alter-egos is Noel Fielding.

It's also something of a departure for a director renowned for placing pop stars in serious roles in big cinematic scenarios, Kasabian included. The film references are all present and correct, but You're In Love With A Psycho is seriously comic, even cartoonish. 

Featuring appearances from Stephen Graham as well as Noel Fielding, this take on One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest is scurrilously tongue-in-cheek, and full of sight gags. It even includes a touch of the Marx Brothers, with Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno and Fielding engaging in their version of the famous mirror scene from Duck Soup.

The band contribute wholheartedly to an ensemble that sees a gang of patients clamouring for the affections of their nurse - a more alluring version of OFOTCN's evil Nurse Cratchit – before breaking out in a suitably demented dance routine. Great stuff.
