Video: Spoek Mathambo, “Control”

Leave it to FADER #69 cover star Spoek Mathambo to flip Joy Division’s “Control” into a dark, somewhat harsh dance track and then get Pieter Hugo (also known as the guy who took those photos of the dudes with hyenas on chains) to film an equally dark video. (via Dazed)

    The song doesn’t light me up as much as I’d like it to, but the video is spectacular. Incredible to see such great imagery done so (I assume) cheaply.
    Reminds me in some ways of this:
    by SubMAchena, which the rumours say cost no more than the bus ticket for the cameraman. Different artistic vision entirely, but with the same sense of making something with visual impact, despite not having explosions or even colour.
