Del Marquis, the guitarist for the tirelessly glamorous Scissor Sisters, makes a sharp turn to the dark side with “Character Assassination”, the title track from his forthcoming EP of the same name. We here at PopMatters are thrilled to be able to present the world premiere of the video for this track.

Over doomily cascading Gary Numan-style synths, Marquis explores the extremely thin line between delight and despair.  As for the video, it’s as if Nine Inch Nails had Philip K Dick direct a video using only the cover of Peter Gabriel’s Shock the Monkey as inspiration.  It’s moody stuff, but he can’t be all gold lamé bikini briefs all the time.
