THE CRIMEA

New Videos

LWOA vid. Weird.With a little bit of acid and plenty of “what the fuck?!?”, The Crimea have released their music video debut proper and you can find it but a few clicks away on their official site. The “…Amarillo” style video sees Davey caught up in a twister, walking along the streets of down-town USA South Africa followed by nothing less than huge black 10-story tall scary fuckers. Yes, that is one in the pic looking suspiciously towards Davey. Along the way he’s pelted by leaves, some kinda viscous liquid, and is then joined in his journey by a few more of the black things. Told you there was plenty of “what the fuck?”.
And if that weren’t enough to get you open jawed, they’ve also released the next installment of their US tour video. Featuring guest appearances from Regina Spektor and Doris Henson, it’s one not just for the Crimea fans, but there is some band new music acompanying the thing if you do happen to know who The Crimea are.

    new music = new LWOA b-sides maybe?

    either way they sound excellent, especially the jangly piano bit

  2. Dan says:

    That’s an old song, they haven’t played it for quite a while though. Definitely heard it a few times before

    Odd… intriguing… odd…

  4. monkeyfish says:

    nah i know about out of africa, the other ones sounded pretty new though (theres one right at the end which sounds like its straight out of a cowboy movie)

  5. Dan says:

    The soldier bit is the same song as the "if it takes all summer" bit. I may even have a setlist somewhere with it on. Definitely an oldy.

    monkey means the very last one. "last… at dawn, like there’s no tomorrow, losing passages of time…". could be that send in the light brigade song they do. i know what everything else is.

  7. Dan says:

    I’m not sure about that one, I’ve heard Light Brigade a couple of times and I don’t think that’s it. I’m happy they’ve recorded "if it takes all summer" (dunno the name), would be good to see it on the new single.

  8. monkeyfish says:

    chris – ‘kalashnikovs (sp) at dawn’ might it be?

  9. Christopher says:

    This is why I’m so amazed I got almost all the original TR lyrics right :o \

    The summer one is called "Summer" (go figure), it’s been around for ages, 2 years maybe. And speaking of single releases, I was thinking, could this be the first double version single for the crimea? CD1/CD2 anyone?

    Joe thinks the video background is ACTUALLY south africa!

  11. Christopher says:

    god, i knew they were tall down there but christ… windy n all, is it?

    > could this be the first double version single for the crimea? CD1/CD2 anyone?

    Sounds good if both have their own b-sides (rather than one just being backed by live tracks.) It’s a decent way to get recorded versions out of stuff they probably wouldn’t consider for an album, but which I for one appreciate.
