Mike Fielding and Noel Fielding are the stars of a new music video from supergroup The Claypool Lennon Delirium.
A collaboration between Sean Lennon and Primus rocker Les Claypool, their debut album The Monolith of Phobos features psychedelia-influenced jam sessions, with surrealist lyrical explorations. However, lead single Bubbles Burst offers Sean’s personal recollections on Michael Jackson’s pet chimpanzee Bubbles.
Lennon, of course, appeared in Jackson’s 1988 long-form music video Moonwalker, and was a friend of Jackson’s in the 1980s and early 90s. However, the video – featuring Noel as MJ and Mike digging out his old Luxury Comedy monkey suit as Bubbles, is a work of twisted madness, which culminates in a corking animated tribute to that vintage slice of 80s hokum. You can see the whole video for yourselves below.
If you like what you hear, the album is available to buy now on cd and download, and you can order it via Amazon over yonder.
