lucasepLOCAL H frontman Scott Lucas will release the latest from his SCOTT LUCAS & THE MARRIED MEN project this coming Tuesday, as THE CRUEL SUMMER EP arrives at digital retailers and as a limited-edition 7″ Vinyl via The End Records. Today comes the music video for the title track, a dark cover of the 1980s BANANARAMA classic, “Cruel Summer.” Check it out below…

“We were gonna go with a pretty straightforward performance clip, but we always seem to do that. So, we threw that right out. Bunuel, Kenneth Anger, and David Lynch are the obvious influences here, but there’s some ‘Risky Business’ and Elvis Costello album covers in there, too. Someone called it ‘Tree Of Life’ with meat. And, though I think that’s an insult to Terrence Malick, I suppose it’s fair. This video is just what summer is to me, I guess: burning flesh and vaguely Satanic rituals.”Scott Lucas
