Ciaran Lyons' slaps some of his signature style onto the faces of Dead! in this technicolor cut-out performance.

Combining live action and hand-drawn elements into the same frame, Ciaran creates an energetic performance video that celebrates a rough-around-the-edges, handmade aesthetic of DIY punk energy.


"The main ambition with the video was to capture that primal essence of a bunch of young lads giving it laldy* with guitars. I wanted to make it as easy as possible for the guys to just do their thing - which was just as well, because I don't think any of them had been to bed for quite a while..."

*Scottish word meaning to sing or do proudly; with great gusto. (In case you were wondering).
