New Fucked Up Video – “Crooked Head”

Fucked Up’s first official video edits together footage from their Blitz covering, Chemistry Of Common Life promoting 12-hour marathon. The footage, shot by Brendan FitzGerald of VBS.tv, was edited together by Bajir Cannon. We probably could have done without the after effects and fancy splicing, but it’s a nice enough snapshot of the Toronto band in their live element. Keep watch for the Vivian Girls doing backup vocals.


FU made it onto a number of year-end lists, but it’s a bit more interesting to note that in ’08 Damian emeraged as a bear heartthrob (scroll past Pattern Is Movement and Subtle).

The Chemistry Of Common Life is out via Matador. There’s also a “Crooked Head” b/w “I Hate Summer” 7″ out on the same label. You can catch the band live if they come to your area:
