All reports of The Rapture’s CMJ performances were over-the-top in their praise, but we know of what they speak. This Ben Dickinson directed clip for “Whoo! …” sets the band in situations that capture all that we love about the punk-funkers: free-wheeling rooftop bbq-and-dance parties, bedroom jams, crusing through the gritty city, and all with super-imposed, over-the-top technicolor animation. Also known as “the perfect way to play hookey.”
And if you think that’s special (and even if you don’t), take a listen to the Simian Mobile Disco remix of the track. The crowd pumping chant-along is transposed to the tune’s start, and Simian Mobile build up from there. It’s Rapture for the club kid in you.
