John Grant's Cardiff-set Video

Saw this YouTube over at Y Twll and it's fab. It's a video for Chicken Bones, latest release from cult American singer, John Grant (formerly of The Czars). Directed by Casey Raymond and Ewan Jones Morris it is set in downtown Cardiff. Great to see Bessemer Road market getting the cinematic treatment, and you'll probably recognise other spots in the capital such as Clwb Ifor Bach. The video's narrative is basically this: a down-on-his-luck superhero goes on a psychotic revenge trip after necking some drugs. Chicken Bones is taken from Grant's Queen of Denmark album.
