Let's try this again...
The Dorobo label (now defunct) out of Australia has been one of my favorite labels for a while. Mostly the brainchild and work of Darrin Verhagen under his various monikers, it features some interesting music of a more "industrial" nature, social commentary with an art school aesthetic.
This is a compilation of videos of artists from the label. The videos definitely match the feel of the music. Grainy, industrial, Kafka-esque collages. An excellent series of videos put together by I+T=R (local designer Richard Grant credited by Verhagen with creating the entire Dorobo aesthetic)
Turn down the lights and turn up the volume for a creepy good time.
This one is long overdue for a DVD treatment. Richard Grant has been posting some stellar videos on his YouTube account which includes everything here and then some.
TCH (aka This Crepuscular Hour) also has a YouTube account well worth checking out.
Experiment and engaging stuff, highly, highly recommended.
