Chicago filmmaker Dave Anderson directed Waco Brothers' latest video and filled it with intense imagery to match the tune's visceral anger over income inequality.
Chicago's Waco Brothers released their latest album, Going Down in History, last week and previous to that, we had the pleasure of premiering the album's first single, "Had Enough", in audio form. Now the band has released a beautifully shot lyric video for the song, which goes well beyond the standard lyric video and feels a lot more like a short film. Chicago filmmaker Dave Anderson made the video and filled it with intense imagery to match the tune's visceral anger over income inequality. The thing is that we need this brand of outraged, but hooky UK punk very much in these troubled times. The tune manages to channel Joe Strummer every so often and the visual energy of the video matches up perfectly with Waco Brothers' having "had enough".
Jon Langford says, "the rich and powerful have had their tails up and pockets stuffed for the last 30 years and its never gonna be enough for them. Meanwhile there are people working two jobs who can't feed their families. Something is going to snap, fracture, collapse, implode. And I like the men having a pillow fight in the video!"
