Despite Amy Klein's departure from Titus Andronicus (now they will be just good 'ol Jersey boys), their video for Nirvana's "Breed" features her ghostly presence. The song, recorded for Spin's Nevermind compilation, is perfect for Patrick Stickles' hurtling, already Cobainesque vocals. Klein, dressed in a ghost costume, taunts and chases the band throughout the course of their gutturally satisfying version. The rest of the video is a series of disjointed visuals of the band laying down the track mixed in with flashes of old TV sets, numbers peddling downwards, and vague zoomed-in shapes. Maybe even brusquer than the original, the video achieves Titus' manic energy to a tee.
The video is confined to this weird vertical box because the band member filming "had gotten the camera, like, the day before, and didn't know to hold it another way. Punk rock don't need no fancy cameras.
