There is no doubt in my mind that David Lynch is a genius, a twisted bastard, but a genius all the same! I love his movies, and they would appear to be getting stranger as the legend gets older.
However, Lynch has recently been concentrating on music, and music videos. His latest project is called Crazy Clown Time, and the album was released back in November. I am embarrassed to say that I have not gone out and bought it, however that is all set to change after hearing what I heard today.
The title track from the album is itself called Crazy Clown Time, and the music video, also directed by Lynch, went online a few days ago. It is seven minutes of pure Lynch brilliance, and is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression. This is surreal, unsettling and quite creepy stuff, and the music itself it superb. It feels like your in that pivotal moment of a Lynch film, where everything is about to change.
The music is just terrific, and the singer and lyrics, although a little silly, just add to the overall weirdness. The video is embedded below for your viewing pleasure!
