I really don’t want to get too preachy, but if you live in the USA and you haven’t taken part in early voting, your time for action begins in a few hours. Maybe this latest piece of art from my friend Neil will be enough to remind you that people have fought and died so we can vote and we have that power because they gave a shit. It’s easy to sit on the sidelines and bitch, or you can get to the polls and make a difference…the choice is yours.
Neil Nathan Inc.’s Power To The People Then & Now Music Video is a two song concept video for his Stonesy power popper “Everybody Everywhere” and his John Lennon inspired hippie ballad “All We Need Is So Much More.”
Part 1 kicks off with footage of legendary anchorman Walter Cronkite and features classic photos of protests past (Women’s Suffrage, Apartheid, Vietnam, Child Labor, Civil Rights) while Part 2 begins with Anderson Cooper and features photos of recent protests worldwide (LGBT Rights, Occupy, Arab Spring, Ukraine, Climate Change, Umbrella Revolution, Immigration).
Both songs are featured on Neil’s sophomore LP, Sweep The Nation, which debuted on Seattle’s KEXP and was called “Impressive” by both Magnet Magazine and Vinyl District. Huffington Post called Neil’s Jumpstart Claymation Video from the record, “A bizarre good time.”
Neil also produced a Lou Reed tribute video for his cover of There Is No Time which New Zealand’s Off The Tracks called “scorching” and 50thirdand3rd called “the coolest Lou Reed cover yet.”
