Peter Broderick & Ensemble 0 share animated video for White Jet Smoke Trail II

21.12  2023


Today we share the marvellous music video for Peter Broderick & Ensemble 0's White Jet Smoke Trail II — a tribute to Arthur Russell. This might be our favourite video of the year — directed, animated and puppeteered by Broken Down Golf Cart.

"The video for ‘White Jet Smoke Trail II’ is a kind of love letter to Arthur Russell and his legacy. The song itself is one of four previously unreleased Russell pieces which myself and Ensemble 0 have had the honour to premiere to the public . . . and while this one doesn’t have any lyrics, it does incorporate lyrics and imagery from some of those other previously unheard tracks. Most notably perhaps is ‘Corky’, in which Arthur sings about grabbing around the neck of a lovely pony named Corky and riding off into freedom. To work with Broken Down Golf Cart and bring these ideas to life through painstakingly handmade animation has been a dream come true." — Peter Broderick
