Here's the video for "Bag of Bones" from The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Read on for a statement about the making of the video from the co-director Lucy Dyson.

"Thinking back over the creative process for the 'Bag of Bones' animated video, I nearly don't know where to begin...but I think the first idea Jon suggested was a link to an old Bud Spencer (the Italian action-comedy actor) movie, with Bud messing up some guys in a gym. We played with the idea of a cartoon Russell Simins depicted as Bud Spencer messing up all the pretender rock n' rollers, we kinda took it down that path, but with Bud/The Blues Explosion taking a wrong stage exit and ending up in psychedelic zombie film, greatly enhanced by Steve Pavlovsky's brilliant Liquid Light Lab oil projections. We also spoke a lot about animation references, there are nods to John Kricfalusi, Dr Who, Terry Gilliam (my favourite), and even though we did discuss Tex Avery and Chuck Jones at length, I don't know if my and Joseph Jensen's animation skills quite got there, but it was a lot of fun to create. Jon's constant creative feedback of 'make it darker and weirder,' matched with references to beautiful Ezra Jack Keats children's book illustrations, were always a joy to receive."

Director: Lucy Dyson & Joseph Jensen
