Liquid Liquid - Cavern

Liquid Liquid, a legendary NYC band from the early 80s, was part of the 'No Wave' movement (minimalist disco). In 1983, Grand Master Flash and Melle Mel sampled the funky bass line and melody for the hit song, White Lines (Don't Do It). White Lines was also covered by Duran Duran.

This psychedelic video was directed by Liquid Liquid's bass player, Richard McGuire and first aired in December 1997. McGuire has also done work for the Sea and Cake. The animation is highly inspired by a 1927 film called Seelische Konstruktionen (Spiritual Constructions) by German filmmaker and painter Oskar Fischinger.
