Here we have the video for “People C’mon”, the third track off last year’s stellar Delta Spirit album Ode to Sunshine. The group, best known for their over-the-top and energetic live shows, don some old school gear and seem calm at first in this colorful video. But things start to get a little hairy about half-way through and, well, you’ll see.

Well, Mr. Oizo may have shat the bed with his fuzzy little Flat Eric character and the tragic Lambs Anger, but the latest video from Qua’s latest triumph Q&A shows there’s still a place for cutesy little muppets in quality independent music (even if they end up copulating, doing lines, and puking). Props to director Gus Kemp for going to that dark Meet the Feebles place.
