Blur's "Country House," Directed By Damien Hirst, Is Our Music Video of the Day
Have you made it over to your local Gagosian Gallery for the worldwide Damien Hirst show yet? While you're seeing all those dots, don't forget that the British artist also directed today's oldie-but-goodie video for Blur's "Country House" back in 1995. Hirst had been in school with the lads at London's Goldsmiths College back in the late '80s and he came up with the "Escape From the Rat Race" board game concept for the video. The band's bass player, Alex James, described it as "a clash between high and low art." Note the giant skull hanging on the back wall. How much do think that would sell for now?
