Video #21 – “Mr. Tragedy” by The Slackers

…open up your eyes, or this whole world is gonna pass you by…

Finally! It’s been a long time coming but here’s our video featuring The Slackers. One of the coolest things about this album (The Great Rocksteady Swindle) is that it was truly a team effort – each of the Slackers took a turn at writing. This video is for the kinda morbid, kinda bizarre “Mr. Tragedy” written by drummer Ara Babajian.

We shot this back in October at C-Squat. The Slackers are: Ara Babajian, Marcus Geard, Dave Hillyard, Jayson Nugent, Glen Pine, Vic Ruggiero. Cinematography by Jeff Brink, with some G&E help from Jorge Garza and Spencer Shangkaun and PA Pam Karp. The animations for this eventually became labors of love for animatorRobinson Deckert and myself.

So come with us on an adventure into the surreal with “Mr. Tragedy” and The Slackers.

Again, special thanks to Bill and co at C-Squat. Be sure to check out The Slackers upcoming shows in the next couple months.
