forgotten video

Over the past 5 years or so, every so often, my mind has drifted towards a video that I watched a few times on Much Music in the mid 90’s. I had never paid attention to the name of the song, or the band, but I remember the visuals and message having an impact on me. It was claymation (not Tool) & involved a healer, and a gift – a pair of scissors.

Thanks to my googling persistence, the mystery has been solved:

The Gandharvas – The Masochistic Minstrel

Breakdancing WOW.

A couple of things that went through my head while watching this video for the 2nd time (the first time there was only awe):

“I wonder how stretchy his jeans are?”,

“what’s with the door in the background” (not to mention the broken glass, pointed out by Black Eiffel),

but mostly just more “Wow!”.
