| THE JEFFREY LEE PIERCE SESSIONS PROJECT - A SHAME AND PAIN - VIDEO
posted at 05/12/2014
Stewart told us, "It was a total honour to do a posthumous duet with Jeffrey and together with Jim Sclavunos and Thurston Moore to finish one of his last songs. Back in the day Jeffrey's Gun Club together with Nick Cave's Birthday Party were one of the very few renegade comrades. Massive respect to Cypress Grove for protecting scraps of tape and fragments of a dream (Jeffrey's legacy). La luta continua."
This accompanying and specially-commissioned video is by Rupert Goldsworthy, the British 'New Banalist' artist and author of the radical classic 'Consuming Terror'. Says Stewart "It's an 'objet trouvé' provocation riffing on the trope of 'entangled objects', the moving contradictions of geographical development and the production of space / the third place / the worldwide revolt of human nature against universal alienation." Goldsworthy's visuals are a worthy backdrop to the chaos of Pierce's end times, as he already knew at this point that he was dying. According to Cypress Grove, "The chaos that his life had become is perfectly reflected in the whirling dervish dancing in time to the music, and the crescendo building up to the inevitable explosion at the end says it all."
