Based on conversation I had with Andy and Colesy about the video of
"Loose Cannon" I had back in February (Coles showed us the original
video idea he'd been working on before things went sour, and it was
magnificent), I recently gave the track another spin. I don't
necessarily *HATE* it, but it pains me that they chose it as a single,
as there are hugely superior tracks to be found on the record (most
notably the afore-mentioned "Seeing Red" and my personal favorite,
"Blood On Your Hands").
Also, I'm sorry, but I just don't like breakdancing. I didn't like it
when Devo put breakdancers in the video for "Are You Experienced?" and
I sure don't like'em in Killing Joke videos. I'm not saying there's
anything *wrong* with breakdancing, but it just doesn't belong with
Killing Joke. It also seemed like they were trying to hide their age.
C'mon, lads, you're ELDER STATESMEN....be proud of it. In the same way
Geordie should stop worrying about being bald (take off those silly
hats, man), the `Joke as a whole should stop worrying about looking old
and fat (though, I must say, Raven still looks pretty fit).
