Massive Attack and Young Fathers

Mrs S & I are fans of Edinburgh's Young Fathers. We've got both of their fine albums and we caught a memorable and very intense show on their UK tour last year. The band make an equally intense guest appearance on Massive Attack's 'Ritual Spirit EP'. The video for the tune doesn't mess about either.

I watched this video the other week and was completely captivated... it's so nightmarish but compelling and I found myself wondering about how it was made, I'd love to know.
Good song too...

Powerful on all counts. Would seem that the EP is only available to download or on vinyl at the moment. Hey, chaps! How about an 'old school' CD? Is that Rosamund Pike?

Bloody hell! It is her. Must have cost them an arm and a leg...unless she's a big fan or something.

Wow! First time I've heard or seen the song or video. V good stuff.

I was rather disturbed by the video, not sure why. Made me feel right uneasy. Great Tune but the vinyl at £18 is too rich for me.

It's an intense piece of work all round. £18 for a 12" EP? I'll side with Singing Bear and hope for a CD.

I'm with Drew on this in terms of the video and outrageous cost of the vinyl
