New Giant Drag Video – “Stuff To Live For” (Stereogum Premiere)
When Annie Hardy, aka Giant Drag, sat down with Jessica for a Progress Report, we found out she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, was prepping and planning to self-release the Swan Song EP, and that she went blond and cut and sold her hair. We also premiered Swan Song‘s “Stuff To Live For.” A more than solid amount of information, sure, but she didn’t tell us that in the G.J. Echternkamp-directed video for the track she’d be getting pummeled with glitter, confetti, streamers, rose petals, bubbles, silly string, popcorn, candy, noodles, assorted garbage, Jell-O, pudding, canned green beans, canned corn, cigarettes, pills, syringes, fake blood, flour, feathers, milk, Tampico fruit drink, eggs, and breakaway glass. Quite the onslaught. As Hardy told us, “I think it was G.J.’s intention to make me suffer and I am almost crying when all that milk and Tampico is being poured/shot at me.” See for yourself.
The Swan Song EP is out in October. You can hang with Annie this weekend by tuning into Ustream.tv for a live performance/auction on Saturday 8/29 at 1:30pm PST.
