Chris Cunningham seems to have been quit for a while but the man behind the classic videos for Aphex Twin’s ‘Windowlicker‘ and Björk’s ‘All Is Full Of Love‘ recently debuted his newest work at the MOMA. The video for Gill Scott-Heron’s impressive track ‘New York Is Killing Me‘ features a remix of the song made especially for the video by Chris Cunningham himself.

By the way, if you still haven’t listened to Gill Scott-Heron’s ‘I’m New Here‘ you’re seriously missing out, the only bad thing I can say about it is that it’s way too short of an album.



1982 was when Jaap van der Doelen aka J.Monkey shot his way out his mom dukes. A mere two years later he was already battling Big Brother and The Illuminati. Whenever he has time to spare from those efforts he writes (about music, mostly), hosts a radio show and designs graphics for a living. He lives in The Netherlands where he continues to be winning.
