Danko Jones "Legs" (video)
Published Dec 03, 2013Danko Jones delivered Rock and Roll Is Black and Blue last year via Bad Taste Records, and now the long-running Canadian outfit have shared a music video for the hard-rocking cut "Legs."
Directed by Bruce LaBruce, the black and white clip shows the group's singer/namesake getting dragged down into a basement and duct taped to a chair before being groped. There's no nudity, although the scantily clad folks who capture Danko (and later his bandmates) make this a decidedly risqué affair.
LaBruce discussed the video in a statement, saying, "Danko suggested their song 'Legs,' and for some reason I immediately thought of some of my sexy and leggy acquaintances in the M-F transsexual community. I really love the work of the famous photographer Pierre Molinier, whose gender bending photographs have influenced a variety of artists, so I decided to pay tribute to his work in the video."
The director previously penned Exclaim!'s Blab column a decade ago.
