Published Mar 07, 2011We're not going to lie to you -- if we had to pick between watching the Strokes' SNL performances from over the weekend and this latest behind-the-scenes studio clip, we'd go with the Strokes' TV spot. Nonetheless, this third entry in the Making of Angles series makes for a good 90-second distraction.
Like parts one and two, the clip strings together a bunch of non-sequitur moments, providing us a little insight on the band's latest recording experience.
Fab Moretti hammers his kit heavily at one point, Julian Casablancas sings about being "a fucking crazy fuck," and guitarist Nick Valensi takes his rage out on Jimi Hendrix. The six-stringer chews Jimi out, or rather a poster of the guitar god, by decrying "The Wind Cries Mary" and slaps a lit cigarette out of the, uh, poster's mouth. It's all in good fun, though. In case you forgot, Angles drops March 22 via RCA.
