We’ve made no secret of the giant man-crushes we have on Deerhoof drummer Greg Saunier, the man who makes it possible to dance your ass off to the Bay Area noise popsters even at their noisiest. So it is with big, googly puppy-dog eyes full of man-love that we present to you this awesome little video filmmaker Vincent Moon shot with Saunier in Hong Kong. It’s just 8 minutes of Saunier walking around the city with a pair of drumsticks, but it’s a hoot.
This is apparently the first of four Deerhoof “solo” videos that will be premiering over the course of the next week on You Ain’t No Picasso. Check back there next week to see what on-camera antics Satomi Matsuzaki, John Dietirich and Ed Rodriguez get up to. There probably won’t be any impromptu back massages like in the Moon/Saunier clip, but with Deerhoof, you never know.
Deerhoof’s next album, Breakup Song, comes out Sept. 4th.
