RatKing – “Piece of Shit” (A Film by Ari Marcopoulos)

I saw these guys perform at SXSW a couple of weeks ago and was impressed; the difference in disposition between the two vocalists is pretty awesome.

Acclaimed Dutch photographer and filmmaker Ari Marcopoulos recently completed “Piece Of Shit”, a short film on RATKING. Shot on Super 16mm, “Piece Of Shit” features RATKING performing a live, one take version of their song of the same name from last November’s WIKI93 EP (Hot Charity / XL). The result is a documentary-style video shot in the trio’s Brooklyn practice space that displays Marcopoulos’ signature muted, black and white aesthetic.
