Watch New Ladyhawke Video
The Quietus , October 6th, 2009 06:05

Click below to watch the new Ladyhawke video. The pirate caper has been filmed to promote her new single 'Magic' which comes out on Modular on October 26.

As much as this is a lovely song - and it is a lovely song - The Quietus is slightly peeved that Pip Brown/Ms Hawke has indulged herself in a pirate themed video. As we have been saying for some time now, the time of the thick bearded, mono legged, badly drawn map clutching, sea scoundrel has passed. And while we're on the subject: STOP MAKING COMEDY FILMS AND VIDEOS ABOUT ZOMBIES YOU FUCKING DONKEYS! Sean Of The Dead was pretty good, we know! But it was FIVE FUCKING YEARS AGO!

And stop telling me that zombie films make great satire! I fucking know alright?! I FUCKING KNOW. Do you know what the satirical target of the 58 zombie films that came out this year is? THE FUCKING HUNDREDS OF CLUELESS CUNTS CURRENTLY WANDERING ROUND LONDON AND MANCHESTER AND GLASGOW CLUTCHING THEIR CLUELESS FUCKING SCRIPTS FOR THEIR CLUELESS FUCKING ZOMBIE FILMS, BANGING BRAINLESSLY ON THE DOORS OF PRODUCTION COMPANIES TO GET THEIR HOPELESS AND BANKRUPTCY SUMMONING PROJECTS GREEN LIGHTED BY OTHER VACUOUS SENSE DEPRIVED FLESH AUTOMATA. THAT'S FUCKING WHO!

NOT EVEN CHARLIE BROOKER CAN STOP A ZOMBIE PROJECT FROM BEING UTTER SHIT. GIVE IT UP!

The choice of all film makers / graphic novelists / promo directors of taste in 2010 will be either cannibals or evil monks.

Here are some Send More Paramedics videos from back when zombies were brilliant.
