Garbage deliver surrealist ‘Blood For Poppies’ clip
04 April 2012
Shirley Manson gets her eyeball sliced in Garbage’s surrealist clip for their comeback single.
The band are about to release their first album in years Not Your Kind Of People and have revealed the video for the first single ‘Blood For Poppies’.
It’s an obvious nod to the black and white late-1920s surrealist films of Luis Buñuel, particularly the eyeball-slicing Un Chien Andalou.
The band did a UStream chat and admitted that the clip was inspired by Buñuel and Magritte.
Manson described the shoot: “We piled into a transit van with the ridiculously talented team of [director] Matt Irwin and Aaron Brown and hopped around little pockets of Los Angeles creating a gorgeous surrealist dream.”
So, Manson gets her eyeball sliced with a straight razor. Wanna see? It’s below. Not Your Kind Of People will be released on May 15.
