Video: Red Fang, "Hank is Dead"

fangstill from "hank is dead" video - red fang
Red Fang is making the best music videos in Portland. On this, their third vid in an epic trilogy for Relapse Records, the band shows off a few familiar themes—beer, driving around, watches drawn in sharpie—but also gives a lot of love to its hometown and the legions of air guitarists that live here.

This new video is a bit lower-key than the band's first epic two, which found them murdered by LARPers and driving through a wall of milk, but it's a charmer that bears repeated views (especially if you miss the Ian Karmel belly cameo the first time through). I am reminded here of an ancient quotation that always centers me spiritually and emotionally:

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

It seems like Red Fang is enjoying its time atop the Portland rock and roll heap about as much as any band could. I mean, sheesh, they even shower together!
