No cuts, no edits, nothing.
 

Like Heems? Like Stephen Norrington’s 1998 vampire thriller Blade? Here’s the former Das Racist’s emcee’s video for “Desi Shoegaze Taiko”, a droney, Yuck-sampling deep cut from 2012’s excellent Nehru Jackets. Spoiler: It’s just the vampire rave scene from Blade in its entirety, juxtaposed with Heems’ lines about not going to Whole Foods and “paging all the babes.”

You can (and should) download Nehru Jackets for free here.
