The Leeds based rock band Eagulls came up with a pretty smart, albeit nauseating, way to get the anxious mood across in their song “Nerve Endings,” and apparently it led to some police involvement. The murky video consists of a pig brain, acquired from a local butcher shop, left out to rot and filmed in high-speed. Hazy footage of the band plays over it, but your eyes are definitely drawn to the slowly decomposing organ, which eventually is overcome with maggots and devoured completely. Apparently during the filming someone came across the brain and camera, and assumed something very fucked up was happening and called the authorities. In the words of Eagulls frontman George Mitchell: “Some guy had come round to sort the gas out ‘cos we hadn’t paid the bill. He’d gone downstairs, seen there was some fucking brain rotting and called the coppers.” Despite getting their door kicked down, it seems like everything worked out. Check out the video below.
The “Nerve Endings” 7-inch single will be available 9/30 via Partisan Records.
