Meatraffle 'Oh Corona' by Meatraffle
South London band Meatraffle have responded to the Covid-19 crisis by penning there own hyper-topical tune Oh Corona, and inviting their friends and fans to send in clips of them performing the song, from isolation. Niall Trask was assigned the task of turning the assembled footage into the video for the song.
The band have also asked people who enjoyed the video to make a small donation to the Brixton Soup Kitchen or The Trussell Trust.
"We wanted to write a song that was both apocalyptic but uplifting at the same time, in that strange tradition like children singing a happy nursery rhyme but with macabre lyrics like Ring of Roses.
"The ideal soundtrack to our lyrics would be Jamaican rocksteady, so we chose to sample Moonlight Groover by the Supersonics with the added percussion and backing vocals by Gavin Mysterion and Madame HIFI. We had to use the sample to replicate the original’s Duke Reid magic as the band were in isolation across South London.
"We put a call out to fans to make a video to accompany the song whilst in isolation and received a fantastic response. The final video was edited by long-time collaborator Niall Trask (Director/Editor: Meatraffle, Warmduscher, Fat White Family)."
Niall Trask presents us with a scrappy little no-budget romance for Meatraffle.
Niall Trask creates a visual ode devoted to Meatraffle's decidedly ambivalent relationship with London.
