smoothbrain I know that Joel Peter Witkin inspired this whole genre of rust colored, perverted music videos, but which one was first? Tool or Nine Inch Nails?
Merzbau NIN. And Tool ripped off the Brothers Quay more than anything (at least at first).
Romanek more or less made the "Closer" video and moved on, but see Floria Sigismondi for a counterexample. I like her, she does good work, but she was wallowing around in the dirt/rust/straitjacket/bondage thing for fucking EVER.
glasseye I'm surprised you didn't find some way to retroactively change your rating to one-star because I like this, smoothbrain.
