Spike Fuck Shares Self-Directed Video For New Song 'Greatest Hits (Suicide Party 1971)'

Wednesday 24th May, 2017 12:20PM

Melbourne's self-described "smackwave" artist Spike Fuck has unveiled a video for her newly released song 'Greatest Hits (Suicide Part 1971)', which is set to feature on an upcoming 7-inch of the same name. The heart-felt tune marks a shift towards a more honky-tonk sound for the musician, who enlisted pedal-steel guitarist Graham 'Evil' Lee of legendary Australian post-punk outfit The Triffids to feature, while in trademark Spike Fuck style the lyrics deal with some heavy subject matter. The accompanying self-directed video was co-produced by film-maker Paris Lenky, and delves even deeper into the song's themes of addiction and isolation, as explained on the artist’s Youtube Channel...

"Made on a small budget, this film explores themes of isolation, loneliness, derealisation & that feeling when you want to go home but what you call home is gone. Unlike the song (or as an addition to the song), the film tells the story of a person leaving her country life behind only to find herself making it in the big city and all the trappings that come along with fame and fortune. It is also inspired by a true experience of watching someone you love suffering drug-induced psychosis, derealisation & HPPD as a result of heavy and constant psychedelic (particularly LSD) drug use."
