The Pixies “Velouria”

Voted as one of NME’S worst music videos of all time, “Velouria” by The Pixies is still pretty memorable. This may be a site dedicated to music video eyegasm, but we have to honour those who break all the rules too. Not sure who the director was, but wouldn’t be surprised if this was Black Francis’ idea. I actually have a lot of affection for this anti-music video featuring the band running down a quarry in painful slow-motion. Or it may be because this song was the perfect soundtrack to many self indulgent adolescent moments.
