Description

TWF was commissioned to create a video for Collapsing Scenery's Bush Mama Blues. Inspired by conversations with the band members Jon Morris dreamed up a surrealist landscape in which the band and the Era footcrew exist in a developer's snow globe being shaken around at Capitalism's will. Reggie Debris writes of the song, "We often think of the phenomena of the cycle of urbanization, urban decay, and gentrification as a kind of force of nature, when in fact these patterns are largely socially engineered. This song is about the rapacious greed and racism of landlords, developers, and city planners."
