Luke Bather - 5th May 2017

Four Gods and a Baby (also known as Adam Green, Thomas Bayne, Toby Goodshank and Macaulay Culkin) craft a very handmade bit of hero worship for Father John Misty.

All the elements for ridiculousness are there: Macaulay Culkin playing Kurt Cobain, being crucified like Jesus by a gang of authoritarian Ronald McDonald types clad head to toe in papier mâché, all taking place inside the Oculus Rift being worn by a theatrical rendering of George Washington. It's strangely DIY and impossible to look away from - and certainly a little tonally different than Culkin's appearance in Sonic Youth videos.
