Welcome to the personal pop project of commercials and music video director Tim Hope (Coldplay, REM, Jimmy Eat World), and an awesome primal scream of a music video, where Barbie doll versions of Hope and musical collaborator Gary Le Strange get imaginatively homicidal with Britain's biggest blabbermouth DJs.

Well, their cardboard cutouts anyway. It's a cri-de-coeur against the inane babblings of (mainly) blokes on radio that comes, says Tim Hope, from him being "bored of trying to get label commissioners to take an interest in [my] idiotic ideas."

So he commissioned the band, the song, and created this weirdly intense slab of lo-fi ultraviolence himself. And how very satisfying it is too.
