I guess sometimes it’s a fine line betwixt “paying homage to” and “hijacking footage from,” but French stoner rockers Los Disidentes del Sucio Motel nonetheless show an affection for Night of the Living Dead in their new video for the song “Z.” The band recently released a split long-player called East Side Story that they shared with countrymen outfit Flashfalcon as a follow-up to their debut, Soundtrack from the Motion Picture (review here), and indeed, “Z” isn’t on it. And there you go.
Also, I’m not sure if you’re a crazy rocking rock and roll band that starting off your video with three solid minutes of a dude watching an old movie on tv is the way to convey it. I understand they’re making a George A. Romero connection, but still. Anyway, like I said in that review above, thinking about it can only detract from the enjoyment.
