You may recall when NJ indie-rock favorites Titus Andronicus shot their “No Future Part Three: Escape From No Future” video by touring their home state’s biggest music hot beds in one day. The Asbury Park portion of that shared experience gathered dozens of amateur extras who were rewarded with a little live bonus after shooting the scenes for the video.
Now Titus Andronicus is asking for your help again for the “Still Life With Hot Deuce And Silver Platter” visual companion off of their lastest LP Local Business.
According to Patrick Stickles via a blogpost:
“Hello friends. I am writing today to give you the following news; it has been decided between Titus Andronicus and the good people at Extra Large Recordings that there shall be produced a “music video” for our song, “Still Life with Hot Deuce and Silver Platter,” from the album, “Local Business,” and we would like you, Mr. or Ms. Music Fan, to be a part of it. It hardly requires that much talent – all you have to do is rock out earnestly, just as you would while enjoying any of yr favorite music. The video shoot is happening this coming Sunday, February the 17th, at a “mystery location” somewhere in North Brooklyn, somewhere easily accesible by subway. The shoot will run from 2:30 pm to around 9 pm. Refreshments will be available, and there will be a real life Titus Andronicus live performance, in addition to much lip syncing. If you are interested in being in the video, e-mail HotDeuceVideo@gmail.com with yr name, and you will receive a response telling you the location. Sound good?”
Patrick also shared a new video for “Tried To Quit Smoking”:
“The astute observer will notice I am playing the song in the key of G major, rather than in Bb major, as it appears on the album. What was with my obsession with putting every song in Bb when we made that thing? Seemed like the thing to do at the time, I guess. Anyway, while you are thinking about yr participation in the new Titus video, enjoy this.”
