It's almost a platitude to say that No Wave director Amos Poe rocks with his camera like musicians do with their axes. His filmography includes not only neo-noir featuring the likes of Deborah Harry and John Lurie, experimental films with stellar soundtracks and music docs like "Blank Generation", "Night Lunch" and "Steve Earle: Just an American Boy", but also music clips. In the 80s, Poe directed videos for "Obsession" by Animotion (1985), Run DMC's "You Talk Too Much" (1985) and "Madhouse" by Anthrax (1986).
In 2010 and 2011 Poe created a series poetic short films set to songs like Jeff Buckley's You & I, New Order's "Age Of Consent", Charlotte Gainsbourg covering Dylan's "Just Like A Woman" and the master own's recent "Love Sick" (see below). The series marks a return to Poe's signature lofi Super 8 look after comparatively glitzy, MTV-friendly works.
Note to our German readers: the Gainsbourg and Buckley clips aren't available, as only YouTube links came up. Testimony to today's precedent-setting ruling by the Hamburg state court that YouTube must remove videos using 12 songs with music rights claimed by German music royalty collection agency GEMA and in the future proactively recognize and remove potentially copyright-infringing content.
