The new NSFW official clip for Nick Cave’s collaboration with UNKLE, “Money and Run,” arrived over the weekend, in which director Tom Haines unleashes a “crude allegory” about a group of gluttonous bankers and/or politicians taking their hedonism to some brutal, violent extremes. It can be tough to appreciate such a killer song with these despicable characters as the backdrop, so you may want to give the song an auditory-only spin here. Otherwise, go nuts above. Here’s UNKLE’s James Lavelle discussing the concept:
It has a sort of Clockwork Orange-esque feeling about it. It follows the idea of taking the money and running — how vulgar and gratuitous we are financially at this point in time. The story follows the excesses of rich individuals preying on the weak and poor.
