Melvins drummer Dale Crover has released a video for the song “I Can’t Help You There.” The track is the second single taken from his new album, Rat-A-Tat-Tat!, which will be released on January 15th via Noise Recordings.
“I enlisted Toshi Kasai and Alicia DiGiovanni to help direct, film and edit. I gave them the basic ideas I had and they ran with them. Inspiration came from ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest,’ The Cramps’ 1978 performance at Napa State Mental Hospital, and the creepy face mask of LA Dodger Kiké Hernández.”
The clip was directed by Crover and Toshi Kasai as Kasai expressed:
“It’s my first time directing a video, the result being like the music I produce, timeless entertainment!”
Cinematographer Alicia DiGiovanni adds:
“The camera delighted in the playfulness of all of the animated characters, what a brilliant experience.”
