Hot Chip, Bernard Sumner & Hot City
Didn't Know What Love Was
The latest ménage à trois promoted by Converse —a love triangle, yes, but a chaste one, focused exclusively on sharing creativity— now has an official video. Bernard Sumner (and his inseparable shadow), Joe Goddard and Alexis Taylor (along with their corresponding train of doubles), and Hot City (as a joker, almost Siamese couple) all appear in the humorous video directed by the Swede Andreas Nilsson. Among the fruits are hairy drummers (and not so hairy, as also appearing is Stephen Morris, Summer’s sidekick since the days of Joy Division), maracas and orangutans, three generations of British musicians combined to make us shake with their pop house delicatessen.
