With his latest album, Jet Black
getting rave reviews all over the continent, Reg Vermue
, or as most know him, Gentleman Reg
, couldn't have chosen a better time to release his latest video for the song "We're in a Thunderstorm". Reg has been known to hang around with some pretty notable people, sharing the stage at one time or another with members of The Hidden Cameras, Sufjan Stevens, Broken Social Scene and Final Fantasy, to name a few. In this video, he is surrounded by company of a different ilk. Among the partying youngsters in this video there seems to be an large amount of transvestites. Nevertheless this looks like a pretty fun party. -Greg Lozoff
