BISHOP ALLEN Premiere Classic MTV-Style Video For Dimmer

A combination of rear project, cardboard cut-outs, a Jell-O mold and some ninja-like scissor work come in together in a fine way to make for BISHOP ALLEN’S video for “Dimmer,” the first mp3 from new album Grrr…, due next week. The video, directed by Randy Bell brings to mind the classic videos from the heyday of early MTV (note: It used to show music videos quite often), artists like Talking Heads, Elvis Costello, The Cars, Blondie and Sparks.

For the ultimate Talking Heads moment, pay attention at the 2:34 mark.
